Rana is a 15-year-old Syrian girl living in a refugee camp in Jordan. Despite her many hardships in life, she is determined to succeed. Girls' Voices, a signature program of GreaterGood.org, is working with the International Rescue Committee to make sure that Rana and her classmates stay in school!
Help us reach our goal of raising $1,000 to fully fund the remainder of her secondary school education!
Just $948.00 MORE NEEDED!
Rana left Syria when she was just a young girl and has not been able to attend school since she moved to Jordan. Rana is so behind on her schooling, she does not have basic reading and writing, and is essentially afraid of returning to school. She and her family are active in the International Rescue Committee Community, and with some formal schooling, Rana will reach her potential.
You can help. For just $10.00, you can send Rana to school for one week! Help us reach our goal to send all of the International Rescue Committee students to school for a year!
Rana is a Girls' Voices Scholar!
During GreaterGood.org's Girls' Voices for Change Contest Rana created a series of photographs showing her family, dreams, and the hardships she faces living in a refugee camp. Rana may be behind in her studies, but she is motivated to get back to school with some support. The G.R.O.W scholarship will help Rana get the tutoring she needs to return to school with confidence.
Girls' Voices is a Signature Program of GreaterGood.org intended to raise funds for girls' secondary education through media made by girls. Our goal is for girls around the world to connect to their voice, their dreams for their education, and use the power of digital media to create images, stories, and visual metaphors that can communicate their strength and potential to the world. The intention of this project is to empower girls to utilize videography to raise scholarship funds to remove financial barriers to completing secondary education.
