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 24 Girls Get to School Safely for 4 Weeks: Completed August 29, 2016
96,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!
In 2008, men on motorcycles sprayed acid into the faces of teachers and students walking to school, targeting girls wearing school uniforms. Donors rallied and purchased a school bus so this would never happen again. Keeping these buses running is costly. Funding is needed to help pay for the bus drivers, fuel and on-going maintenance. With your support, we can continue to provide safe passage to school for girls in Afghanistan.

Provide Art Therapy Supplies for 21 Young Syrian Refugees: Completed August 17, 2016
63,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!
According to the United Nation’s High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), there are over 4.7 million registered Syrian refugees; more than half of them are under the age of 18. Since the revolution began in 2011, over one million children have been forced from their homes. The horrors of living in a war zone in Syria are compounded by the stress of fleeing to a refugee camp. Project Amal ou Salam (“Hope and Peace”) offers emotional support to traumatized young Syrian refugees by facilitating workshops that are conducted in safe, nurturing environments.
