UK Aid Match Announcement
Celebrating your generosity during the Every Girl Matters Appeal
We were delighted to join our partners in Nepal once again, this time to celebrate the result of the Every Girl Matters appeal.
We’re delighted to announced that the campaign has raised over £3.2 million, including £1,615,878 in match funding from the UK government. These vital funds will improve rural healthcare and girls’ access to education in rural Nepal, both of which have been badly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The announcement was followed by words of support from Minister Wendy Morton, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and Project Jason Leitch, National Clinical Director for the Scottish Government.
