"I left to ensure my children had the opportunity to go to school."
"I want my daughters to have an education."
"We left for safety and opportunity"
We are continually inspired by the bravery, resilience and strength these women, and women like them, have. Throughout the years, our organization has witness the success these individuals and their children have accomplished, and we are grateful for a front row seat to cheer them on.
