No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project


I've been lucky to spend my career doing work that I love – promoting the advancement of women and girls. And so I was thrilled earlier this year to join the Clinton Foundation to lead our newest initiative, No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project.

Launched by Secretary Clinton in November, No Ceilings is focused on measuring the progress women and girls have made since the 1995 UN World Conference on Women in Beijing, and assessing the gaps that still remain for women and girls to reach full participation.

I know that we need women – and men – like you to help us share good stories of progress, build momentum around the work that remains, and accelerate the conversation on full participation. So, I hope that you'll help us commemorate this Women's History Month by highlighting extraordinary women who have made a difference in your life and our world; sharing statistics and facts on the current status for women and girls; and learning about some of the great work being done to ensure more women and girls can participate fully in all aspects of political, social, and economic life.

Here are some specific ways to get involved:
1.Follow the facts. Each day this month, the Clinton Foundation's Twitter feed will share one important fact about the progress women and girls have made or the challenges they currently face. You can follow through @ClintonFdn or #NoCeilings.
2.Pin your inspiration. The Clinton Foundation is now on Pinterest and No Ceilings has launched a new Pinterest board to celebrate women who have shattered ceilings around the world, throughout time. Take a look at some of the incredible women who have made their mark on history – some you may know, others may be new to you – and help share their stories.
3.Learn about progress. The Clinton Foundation works with partners around the world to accelerate opportunity for women and girls. Read about some of these great programs.
4.Change your profile picture. To celebrate International Women's Day on March 8, we invite you to change your profile picture on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to a woman who made a positive impact on your life – and help share her story with the world.
5.Share. We know that when women and girls are able to reach their full potential, the results of that positively impact our world. Here is an infographic you can send to your friends and family in honor of this Women's History Month to help remind people about why full participation matters.

Women's History Month

I hope you'll join me and the No Ceilings team in celebrating and sharing these stories – and look forward to working together to help shatter more ceilings around the world.

You're 1 in 2 million

Dear Mumtaz,

Write for Rights 2013 was our most successful global letter-writing campaign ever.
Together, we sent an incredible 2.3 million letters, SMS messages, faxes, petition signatures and tweets defending the human rights of 12 people and communities at risk. Just five years ago, we achieved fewer than 300,000.
And it's changed people's lives. Two prisoners have since been released - Cambodian housing rights activist Yorm Bopha, and Russian prisoner of conscience Vladimir Akimenkov. Other cases have also progressed thanks to your support.
Many people who took part were based in countries without an Amnesty office. With boundless energy - and often tiny - budgets they invited thousands of others to join in and defend the rights of people they had never met.
Activist Grégoire got hundreds writing for rights. Could you inspire people in your area this year?
One of these activists was Grégoire Kauli Moket, a lawyer in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
"I wanted others in the DRC to take part in Write for Rights to defend people at risk through the power of a letter and put pressure on governments," he told us.
Grégoire organized five debates at universities and high schools in Lubumbashi, Katanga, in December 2013 and collected over 1800 letters and signatures."We asked everyone to write solidarity messages to people at risk in Nigeria, Ethiopia, Tunisia and the Occupied Palestine Territories. The atmosphere was friendly," he said. "Although I was far away, I felt close to the victims."
For thousands of people, Write for Rights is an opportunity to get together with others and stand up for something they believe in. "I felt happy," Grégoire told us afterwards, "because I had been given an opportunity to call out to others to combine our energies in favour of people whom we don't know. This is why being part of Amnesty International means so much to me."
Would you like to get more involved and put on a Write for Rights event in your country later this year? If so, please click here to email us with your name, email address and country and we'll get back to you with more information.

Many thanks,

Hayley Baker
Supporter Engagement Manager

Dear Mumtaz,
“Politics is boring.” It’s no secret that many young people feel this way. In the UK, only about half of young people are registered to vote.
That’s why we started Bite the Ballot—to engage young people with politics in a meaningful way.
One way we’re doing this is by inviting artists and photographers from across Europe to submit their work for the chance to have it displayed in the European Parliament.
Register. Vote. Represent.

Fatima Kidney Care Hospital

As you know that renal diseases are increasing very rapidly due to diabetes, impurities in water and high blood pressure, it has become a great need to provide quality treatment facilities to deserving people within their reach. Patients with irreversible end-stage-kidney-failure need life-long dialysis and their lives can be saved if proper and timely treatement is provided. Unfortunately, most of such patients die just because the unavailability of proper treatment in suburban areas. 

Keeping this scenario in consideration, the founder chairman of the trust Mr. Wahid Ali Rehmani decided to construct Fatima Kidney Care Hospital (FKCH) in Surjani Town, Karachi as the city's third dialysis hospital for the poor patients where where deserving and needy patients could get free treatments.

This project will be launched in three stages:

1) First of all, we are going to start Hemodialysis Centre for which we have 7000 sq. ft. readily available space in Surjani Town. Through this Hemodialysis Centre , we would cater the needs of 30 KM radius area covering an estimated population of 3 to 4 million people. (Started)
2) In the second stage, we would start O.P.D. Services along with the most advanced Pathological Laboratory services, Ultrasound, X-rays, etc.
3) In the final stage, the most modern and state-of-the-art 100 beds Fatima Kidney Care Hospital would start its full-fledged services to cater the patients not only from Karachi, but also from Sindh and Baluchistan. FKCH will be the third largest Kidney Hospital in Karachi.
Dialysis Room, R.O. Plant, Consultants room and all the facilities are available including the Dialysis Machines.

With the Grace of Almighty Allah,
Fatima Kidney Care Hospital (Dialysis Unit)
has been inaugurated on 11th September, 2013
Every Month about 250 Dialysis are performed and also we provide Free EPOGEN Injection to all patients.
FKCH is the first Kidney Hospital to offer Protein Diet Therapy in order to maintain the deteriorating health condition of dialysis patients.

Rangers devote their lives to protecting wild spaces and species. Without their brave commitment, many species like tigers, elephants and rhinos would not stand a chance at the hands of poachers.
Take a look at the life of a ranger by the numbers and see why these courageous men and women need and deserve our support.
10 - The number of members in WWF's Tiger Protection Unit, charged with helping protect the last wild tigers on the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
19 - The number of park rangers and Nepal Army members WWF helped train in unmanned aerial vehicles, which will help monitor wildlife and combat poaching.
25 - The number of dollars necessary to provide rangers with fuel for two weeks; such funding allows them to visit local communities and patrol in vehicles.
100 - The number of dollars rangers earn per month at Kui Buri, a national park in South East Asia near the Thai-Myanmar border. Rangers receive few benefits and low salaries.
1,000 - The number of rangers killed in the line of duty in the last 10 years, according to the Thin Green Line Foundation. That's close to two rangers a week, every week, for the last decade.
3,000 - The number of park rangers from more than 20 countries who trained with support from WWF's Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program.
10,000,000 - The number of dollars President Obama committed in July 2013 to help stem illegal wildlife trade trafficking in Africa along with a mandate to develop a national strategy to fight wildlife crime.
Back a Ranger - When you donate to WWF, 100% of your donation will benefit WWF's Back a Ranger project, which helps rangers get the equipment, training, resources and infrastructure they need to stop wildlife crime. Donate now >>
