WISER’s 2020 Year-End Giving Challenge: Health at the Heart of It

December 1st is Giving Tuesday and World AIDS Day!

With an ambitious goal of $60,000, WISER will have the opportunity to leverage your gifts for a piece of a million-dollar incentive prize through GlobalGiving – the largest in its history. All gifts from unique donors on December 1 will help us claim a portion of that prize, and will be a sound investment in our proven programming to improve health for the hardest to reach girls. 

At WISER, health has always been at the heart of what we do. What began as a holistic intervention to combat devastating rates of HIV/AIDS has grown to encompass the physical, mental, emotional, and social determinants of wellness and success for girls in Muhuru Bay. 

We often speak of how proud we are at WISER to support girls’ overall wellness, including mental and emotional health, sexual and reproductive health, and academic success. These are and will always be critical priorities for us. But central to this overall wellness is something we don’t talk about in quite as much detail – disease prevention. With disease prevention top of mind in 2020, we are highlighting how WISER is playing our part in global efforts to continue to fight deadly and preventable diseases like Typhoid, Malaria, Tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS while we continue to work to contain COVID-19.
