In the three months since you met GlobalGiving’s new Girl Fund leaders, they’ve made incredible strides.From reopening sports camps in Jordan to supporting women within the LGBTQI+ community in Argentina, their efforts are as diverse as they are impactful—and their importance can be seen in stories like Fatima’s.
As the Taliban's rule jeopardizes the future of women and girls in Afghanistan, some courageous women refuse to stop learning, growing, and leading their communities. 55-year-old Fatima, who is living as a refugee in Greece, is one of these brave women.
Fatima started attending Farsi Literacy classes led by Girl Fund member Irida Women’s Center years ago and kept up her studies virtually throughout the COVID-19 lockdown.
"I come to the class, and I feel that I can achieve something. I want to learn more!" Fatima shares.
Earlier this fall, the Irida Center rebooted their Farsi Literacy Lessons. Fatima was there, ready to expand her knowledge and horizons—and help support newly-registered fellow students. In the past eight months, 49 classes have been held with 10 regular attendants like Fatima.
Thank you for supporting women like Fatima. With your generosity, the Girl Fund leaders can continue breaking down barriers for women and girls worldwide!
