Nine year old Asma dreams of one day becoming a doctor like her dad: "Being a doctor saves lives and I want to make sure everyone can be healthy and happy."
Despite living through a war, Asma (and others girls her age) is dreaming big. Asma spends her free time poring over books, absorbing any and all information that she can. To Asma, the chance to go to school is the chance to work towards her dreams and build her future: one where she is a strong female doctor, paving the way for a healthier society.
Your continued support goes to ensure that girls like Asama have the keys to reach their dreams, building new opportunities for their futures.
Within northwest Syria, there are hundreds of abandoned wells in need of repair and fuel. These costs are inhibitors for the many displaced people who already struggle to get by - and it is for this reason NuDay intervenes with innovative and sustainable solutions. Rather than simply repairing wells and leaving displaced women and children to secure fuel independently, NuDay is retrofitting wells to convert solar energy into power. This means that women and children have free access to water every day.
NuDay's solar project also provides each family with water tanks that are centrally located, bringing water to the doorsteps of beneficiaries. Beneficiaries have praised this project, sharing that it is alleviating the main stress that they have when it comes to providing for their families.
In 2020, we reached almost 60,000 people through the installation of solar powered wells thanks to your support.
In this day and age, working green is a non-brainer: if we work to create environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions to everyday problems, we guarantee long-term success.
Access to education is a human right - and NuDay is working to secure it for each and every Syrian child. In the midst of COVID, this has meant adapting schools and education to fit with commuity needs. Some ways NuDay has done this is through minimizing in-person classes to accomdate smaller group sizes, allowing for socially distanced learning. Students are also provided with the tools to self-educate in instances where in-person classes are unfeasible. This includes self-guided school books, stationary, and learning materials.
The COVID pandemic has a stronger impact on girls and women. NuDay is rapidly working to close the gap and ensure that female students are prioritized to ensure that their futures are as bright as ever.
