Hania has done it again. A new video and a bonus feature.
Hania’s video gives us a deep look into how educating girls and women around the world benefits us all.
This is particularly true for girls and women in low income countries. When girls are given the opportunity to go to school, there are many benefits to all levels of society.
The girls and young women benefit directly and are given the opportunity of a real future with real choices for the life they want to live. Their siblings see them as examples of what can be possible in life.
Their parents and relatives are given some real hope for their children. Often, the parents’ feelings of gratitude are even more powerful than their children’s.
Communities are lifted up when a new library or school is built. Hope and possibility spread throughout the local and neighbouring areas. Room to Read is an important organization that has been making these gains happen for over 20 years now.
BONUS FEATURE – A PERSONAL STORY FROM HANIA
Here we learn directly from Hania about her love of learning and education. This was denied her for five years when she was living in Syria, during the civil war. After leaving Syria, and immigrating to Canada, Hania worked hard to regain some of her education losses. She completed high school, got a good job and a bright future lies ahead for her.
Thank you Hania.
Until next time, let our warm hearts soar!
And thank you for caring that little bit extra – it really makes a big difference.
