Hello! I am Natalia. I live in Paris and write for Madame Success.
A few months ago, I talked on Skype to Ghaida Hussein.
In 2013, Ghaida started giving classes to displaced school-aged kids. She became the first founder of the school in the refugee camp in Northwest Syria. It all started under the trees.
Ghaida and her family lost their home in the bombings of 2011. Despite difficult conditions and the war, Ghaida keeps teaching classes to kids because that is what they need! Ghaida Hussein provides psychological support to both children and adults. She helped opening more schools in the region and wants to give the chance to education to every Syrian child.
After our conversation, we stayed in contact. It felt like we became friends. I have realised how important it is for Ghaida and other women and children in Syria to have an outside support to push past the struggles of everyday financial, psycological and physical hardships.
Right now, too many children and young people in Syria have very limited opportunities for schools, universities and jobs. They need help of the international community, our help, to grow up and achieve their dreams. Together we can help Syrian children and women recover their community, rebuild their country, and build a better life!
The mission of Madame Success is to connect women from all over the world and share resources, tools, and ideas that help live life on your own terms, in other words, achieve success.
We decided to run a fundraising campaign to raise $2021 by the end of January 2021 to support Save The Children's education projects in Syria.
The $2021 fundraising goal is inspired by an amazing musician from Los Angeles, Qui-Shawn.
We chose to fundraise for Save The Children because this organisation had supported Ghaida's project in the past, and even though we are not allowed to sponsor Ghaida's project specifically, we would love to see more projects like hers emerge.
We believe that through this fundraiser we help Syrian girls, boys, and women get access to quality education. A quality education raises their chances to have a better, happier, and successful life. When women know that their kids are safe, healthy and happy, they are happy. Let's create more happiness in the world!
$10 is a special seed gift that helps get food or school supplies, but if you give more, you can expand your impact:
$20 can help cover costs for pencils, books, and schoolbags for about 5 children
$30 can buy a real soccer ball that will delight and bring joy to so many kids. Thanks to your gift, we may see a new soccer star!!!
$40 can help cover costs for pencils, books, and schoolbags for about 10 children
$75 can educate a girl and brighten her future. For less than 20 cents per day, a girl can receive the books, learning materials, and school access needed to learn and thrive. The results are life-changing.
$100 can help cover costs to recruit quality teachers for girls and boys
$500 can go towards purchasing a share of a school. A new school helps children of all ages prosper. When children have the chance to learn, they can break the cycle of poverty for generations to follow
$1000 can purchase a school water point. School water fountains improve health and hygiene practices.
