Amwaj had to leave her home in Syria when she was only ten years old. As refugees, her family struggles financially. Amwaj is a bastion of creativity and positivity. She wants to become a doctor, and she absolutely adores school and the act of learning new things in general. She is at risk for leaving school and needing to find work to support her family. With a G.R.O.W scholarship, she will be able to pay for the costs related to school - books, tuition, and transportation.

Amwaj took photography workshops during GreaterGood.org's Girls; Voices for Change Contest. During her photography workshops, Amwaj made a selection of beautiful photographs showing different perspectives of the moon (one of which is pictured below).


Despite the many hardships Amwaj has lived through, she stays optimistic, determined to study and make a brighter future for herself.

You can help. For just $12.00, you can send Amwaj 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.

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.
