End the Year by Educating a Girl

By Tara Dawood | Project Leader

Thank you all for educating girls with your zakaat. 

To date, we have educated girls in Pakistan, and with the help of all 29 donors including you, we have raised $5,283 on GlobalGiving.  

We have witnessed the impact on each girl's life. Take little Abida (name changed as per GG policy). Abida is very shy and while she's a good student, she does not speak up in class. Her teachers try their best to encourage her but she simply would not speak when called upon. Her Educate a Girl scholarship required her to speak in front of class in order to pass, regardless of how intimidating she found it. At first. It took coaxing and coaching til she spoke, but once she spoke, she wouldn't talk. She had a lot to say. 

So, as 2019 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 29 Donors donated $29, we would raise $841, which is the education of more than 70 girls for a semester!!!  That's seventy lives changing, just by donating $29 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!
