Background about our history with GlobalGiving and Zahana:

We have been approved by GlobalGiving since 2008.

Global Giving is an innovative website where, after a rigorous due diligence process, small international non-profits can raise tax-deductible donations in the USA.

Not everybody is able to partner with the Tides Foundation as a fiscal sponsor, which has made Zahana’s work possible in the first place since 2005.

GlobalGiving holds an annual competition, calledback then the “GlobalGiving Open”. To increase exposure for Zahana we applied for the Open in November 2007, after our last visit to Madagascar.

In August 2008 we were invited to participate in the GlobalGiving’s “Project Challenge 2008”, suggesting one project, trying to earn a permanent presence in the GlobalGiving database. We had to try, or forever regret it for not daring.

We filled out the necessary paperwork (quite a bit) and created our GlobalGiving website contribution right before the world’s financial markets stated to crumble. With your help we met $3,000/75 donors challenge threshold and Zahana earnedever since a permanent presence on the GlobalGiving website.

Thank you for making us a superstar since 2011! With your donations and support as well as great work by Zahana, we were awarded “Superstar” status, the highest level that an organization can reach on GlobalGiving in February 2011 We are very proud Zahana is ever since among the the best!
