Dreams Without Borders
Hopes and Dreams
Mona and her family escaped the war in Syria when she was 14. She has been out of school for four years now and feels bleak about her future. She currently lives in Irbid, Jordan where she does not go to school but spends all of her time taking care of her younger siblings. Mona is now 18 and has only completed 8th grade.
Mona has wanted to be in school ever since she arrived in Jordan. She has a very creative mind and wants more than anything to have the opportunity to study. Now she is so far behind, she is worried that she will never catch up. Mona's Girls' Voices scholarship will help her with classes for remediation, and school-related costs which her family could previously not afford.
Creating films during GreaterGood's Girls' Voices for Change workshop has ignited Mona's passion to learn and go back to school. Her film, Dreams Without Borders, shows her wonderful imagination and talent! Mona wants to become a fashion designer. We know that with schooling and Mona can accomplish anything she puts her mind to.
You can help. For just $10.00, you can send Mona to school for one week! Help us reach our goal to send all of the International Rescue Committee students to school for a year!
About Girls Voices:
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 and to raise funds, 100% of which will directly contribute to scholarship funds for girls facing financial barriers to completing secondary education.
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives.
