Women make the world a better place to live in - it’s as simple as that.

This past International Women's Day, NuDay took a moment recognize the strength of women and girls around the world. We applaud the strength and resilience of women & mothers everywhere. During humanitarian crises, women play key roles in rebuilding hope and stability - whether that be by supporting their families and communities or supporting as aid workers.

This is why NuDay is committed to ensuring the wellbeing of women and girls, whether that be through education programs, livelihood opportunities, or immediate aid. These populations are often overlooked, yet are vital to ensuring a future of equity and wellbeing for all. 

Thank you for your continued support of empowered aid.

Five year old Fatimah has already experienced more sadness than you could imagine.

You see, Fatimah was born during the conflict in Syria and has lived her whole life knowing a world of destroyed buildings and fractured families. Her father - the one person who she felt safest with - died of a stroke in 2019, and since then, her mama, Rajaa, has struggled to support Fatimah’s basic needs.

Despite all this, Fatimah continues to smile and find joy in the world around her. She spends her days dreaming about when she will finally get to go to school. Her mother is worried: she wants to send Fatimah to school but as things stand, it isn’t an option. She can hardly afford their basic needs, and can’t see how she will be able to pay for Fatimah’s education.

That's where we come in. 

With your support, NuDay is changing the future of girls like Fatimah. Fatimah - and others like her - was enrolled in NuDay's sponsorship program, where donors directly ensure that she can attend school and rebuild her future. This, paired with NuDay's work to improve local infrastructure for the long-term, makes a lifetime of a difference in ensuring that the future of Syria is educated.

Together, we're making a real impact.

Happy Face Painting!
Happy Face Painting!

Sometimes, all you need is a good time and the relief of a smile! This past month, NuDay hosted celebrations for Syrian children to remind them that happiness is the best medicine. As part of NuDay's Ramadan campaign, kids - especially young girls - partook in activities like face painting, where they let their imaginations soar as they waited to see what cool design they would receive (or request). They also received cards with small gifts to bring smiles to their faces.


We wouldn't be able to do our work without you, so thank you for your continued support as we empower futures together! One Person at a Time, One Humanity Closer.

Syria's children are labelled "the lost generation" - a generation exposed to a world of injustice, childhoods stripped away prematurely, no future in sight. NuDay has been working proactively to prevent this, building opportunities for children to learn, build a new vision for their older selves, and be children once again.

The Future Generation Iniatitive does just this. By ensuring that Syria's young girls have the opportunity to obtain an education, NuDay transforms the future into one with hope and happiness. Young girls supported by NuDay learn to dream big and dream often, sharing those visions with each other and building on another up. Together, they learn the value of empowering one another.

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.
