Join us in thanking Tina Louise and other New Zealand-based supporters for completing a 5K fundraiser walk for VGIF! Already an active supporter, Tina coordinated the Kiwi 5K around Blue Lake in Rotorua, New Zealand after being inspired by the young professionals of NYC. Thanks to the efforts of Tina and her fellow walkers, a total of $140 was raised to support VGIF's project grants around the globe.
"The tank enhanced water access for patients and staff at a nearby facility and to neighboring households and schools. Previously we got water from a nearby spring which is 6km away." - Josephine (project participant) from Women in Water and Natural Resources Conservation of Kenya #WWWeek
VGIF grantees support victims of human trafficking in many ways.
