End the year by giving Educate a Girl Zakaat

By Tara Dawood | Project Leader

Thank you all for educating girls with your zakaat. 

To date, we have educated 400 girls in Pakistan, and with the help of all 27 donors including you, we have raised $5,150 on GlobalGiving.  

We have witnessed the impact on each girl's life. Take little Ayesha (name changed as per GG policy). Ayesha has a stutter and while she's a good student, she feels very insecure. Her teachers try their best to encourage her but she is not confident in communicating what she thinks. Her Educate a Girl zakaat scholarship paid for her school tuition fees enabling her to know that she has a secure place in school, not dependent on her family's failing financial situation. This security blanket has given her more comfort that any soft words by caring teachers. Thank you!  She still has her stutter but every day strives to communicate what she wants to say.

So, as 2018 ends. Why not end the year or begin the New Year on the magical note of transforming another life. Educate a girl or two today. And, if you can't right now then please donate $10. If each of the 27 donors donated $25, we would raise $675, which is the education of 27 girls for a semester!!!  That's twenty seven lives changing, just by donating $25 today.  Please also spread the word and consider Educate a Girl zakaat for your entire zakaat donation for this year and the next. Yes, you can make a difference!
