BOLDEREACH
May 26, 2010

BoldeReach, a group of a dozen volunteers, has raised over $500,000 to benefit organizations helping women and children in dire need around the world. Our funding has brought water and sanitation to India, Malawi, Rwanda; education to Afghanistan and Kenya; microcredit loans to Guatemala; helped prevent child trafficking in Nepal and contributed to women's human rights projects around the world. We are hoping to expand our "reach" by helping others to replicate our successful model in other cities.
