IT'S TIME TO RALLY FOR NIGER!

WHAT is the Rally for Niger?

The Rally for Niger is a nation-wide celebration and fundraiser for Remember Niger. We invite individuals and groups of all sizes to hold an event of your choice during the months of September and October, to help raise funds for Remember Niger. Our mission is to unify people and mobilize resources to expand quality educational opportunities in Niger.

WHY should I participate in the 2022 Rally for Niger?
Your participation in the Rally for Niger will provide scholarships for girls to attend school in Niger. Only about 9% of girls in Niger attend secondary school. For girls who are educated beyond primary school, the likelihood of an early marriage is reduced significantly. Furthermore, the longer a girl stays in school, the less likely she is to be married before the age of 18. With pregnancy and childbirth before the age of 18 leading to a number of complications, including both maternal and infant mortality, there are numerous reasons to encourage girls to stay in school.

HOW can I participate?
Participating is easy! You may host your own fundraiser or join one of the events listed below.

• WASHINGTON DC RALLY
Georgetown Presbyterian and Chesterbrook Taiwanese Presbyterian • October 15
