Put 25 Desks In An Afghan Classroom

FUNDED July 11 2013 – Thank You!

GreaterGood_March12_Razia_AfghanClassroom_rcd08312011Raiza 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.
