Girls Global Education Fund

In partnership with the Asian University for Women, Connecther's Girls Global Education Fund will provide scholarships to deserving students all throughout the developing world with a focus on the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Africa.

Congratulations to Pooja Khati, who won the first Let Girls Learn prize for her film Asma, a portrait of a 13-year-old Bangladeshi girl who had to quit school to run her family's tea stand. In the film we see Asma working from 5 AM to midnight each day after just a few hours of sleep. She clearly expresses her dream of a bigger life. “I want to study," she says. "Those who study have importance.” In honor of Asma, Connecther has started a new Girls Global Education Fund. All donations to the fund will be matched up to $10,000 by The Stahl Family Foundation. Donate here to help us get 100 % of the match funds! The funds will provide scholarships for girls in the developing world. Asma will be the first recipient of these scholarship funds.

Rohingya Relief Fund for Clean Water

Connecther aims to raise enough funds to create 50 new tubewells In partnership with a local NGO who will install them.

Conditions at the Cox's Bazar Rohingya refugee camp is heart breaking to witness. The number of people coming in on a daily basis are exceeding the number of resources available. There aren’t enough toilets available so some people have been digging holes into the ground in order to make make-shift toilets and drinking from dirty water sources. Immediate assistance is required in order to get over this travesty. Connecther will start fund raising, so we can install more tubewell and latrines at the camps with the help of a local NGO. Our South Asia director who has been working at the camps will personally visit when the installation process begins, to make sure your donation is going in the right place. Kids are getting sick from this scorching heat, lack of clean water and sanitation. Please come forward to help, they do urgently need your help and assistance.
