Raiza Jan was named one of the “Top Heroes” of 2012 by CNN for her tireless campaign to help the girls of Afghanistan achieve an education. Even today, girls who go to school are subjected to attacks by those who wish to deny education to women. Reports of shootings, poisonings, and beatings remain far too common — but others, like Jan, are committed to making a difference.
Your click today will help outfit a classroom in Afghanistan with twenty-five desks and chairs. Before the opening of the Zabuli Education Center in Afghanistan, girls in area villages had no way to obtain even the most basic, formalized education.
Razia’s Ray of Hope was founded on the belief that education is essential for positive, peaceful change for current and future generations. Girls have an opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, nurturing environment, empowering them so that they may work toward brighter futures in their own villages and beyond.
GreaterGood.org supports Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation and others striving to increase the rate of literacy worldwide through contributions from The Literacy Site and people like you. Click today so children here and around the world receive the books and education that they need for a brighter future.

Help Provide Life Skills Training to 96 Students in Rural Cambodian Villages: Completed May 23, 2016
96,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!
Cambodia’s economic growth is as high as it has ever been, yet the effects of this growth are really only seen in cities—with many rural areas being left behind. Three quarters of the rural economy is subsistence farming, with little value attached to education. For this reason, many are left without basic formal education or an understanding of basic socio-economic and environmental aptitude. You can help. Just $5 provides one student with a complete curriculum and materials for one life skills course. Join JWOC’s mission to provide free education to rural Cambodians by donating today!

Ziggy had to undergo a 4 hour surgery for his broken leg. He will still need a osteotomy for his pelvis in the near future. You can help! Just $20 goes towards Ziggy’s medical costs for his surgery.
