Our Joint Fundraiser Goals:
Generate 20 new individual enablers who will journey with 10 sexually-abused girl survivors (target goal: $62,500 (PhP 3,000,000) or $3,125 (PhP 150,000) per girl)
Overall Goal: $200,000 (PhP 10,042,000) – 10,000 girls reached x $20 per girl – Our goal is to reach a further 2,500 girls in the next 90 days and up to 10,000 over the next 12 months
