If I were to use one word to describe the girls in our scholarship program it would be RESILIENT! Like all other girls around the globe, they have been greatly affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. They were out of school for a long time with most being exposed to unsafe conditions in their communities. When schools opened, most had to quickly adapt to online learning. Yet in spite of these and many other challenges they have remained focused and committed to their dreams.
We recently met most of them for a leadership training session and hearing them reiterate their dreams was inspiring. Each scholar printed their favorite picture of themselves and wrote their dream on the back. They then shared this with each other and affirmed and celebrated each other's dreams. We believe that they will lead us into a beautiful future where systemic change will normalize justice and we're here for all of it!
Thank you for supporting their dreams through your generous giving and co-creating the future with them!
