Sharifa's Story

By Hanan Baky | Program Specialist

Dear VGP Supporters,

Girls in our Valuable Girl Project (VGP) are not only empowered to continue their education but are also nurtured to build fortitude in dealing with life challenges – challenges that most of us could hardly fathom. Our participants face challenges and turn them into shining examples of unique courage.

 

 

 

 

 

Let me share with you a story that touched my heart.  Recently, both of Sharifa’s parents died in an accident leaving her and her 4 younger sisters to be taken care of by her mute aunt. The children were able to remain in their family’s home, but their neighbor thought he would be able to take advantage of the children without their father’s protection, so he began making improvements in his home which would have completely blocked the only window and source of light in Sharifa’s home. 

Read the rest of the story to find out how this 13-year-old Sharifa fended for her rights. Enjoy!
