With their tiny hands, they will lift a nation.
Over the past year, Road to Mafraq’s dedicated supporters have helped send over 1,100 Syrian and Iraqi refugee children back to school.
They’ve done this by:
- Building a playground for the children at our partner school in Mafraq, Jordan
- Helping fund the building and stocking of a library in Azraq, Jordan
- Funding and furnishing new classrooms at our partner school in northern Jordan
- Funding teachers’ salaries
- Funding school fees, supplies, uniforms, and transportation
Can we just pause for a moment to acknowledge how amazing that is?! That’s amazing!
But it’s even more amazing because of our kids. They’re inspiring, intelligent, and determined. And they’re the future of their countries.
They're children like Hala
Hala, age 10, is one of the most dedicated learners we know. She says, “I want to be a teacher when I grow up. Just six months ago, I didn’t even know what a teacher was because I had never gotten to go to school. Now that I have been to school and my teachers have changed my life, I want to be able to do this for other kids.”
And kids like Ahmed
Ahmed is a teenager who fled the violence in Iraq with his family. He and his younger brother both want to be structural engineers. “I want to be a structural engineer when I grow up so that I can go back and help rebuild my country.”
These kids are our heroes.
And we believe that with their tiny hands, they will lift a nation.
But we can’t stop there. There are thousands more kids just like Ahmed and Hala. Kids with big dreams, but even bigger hearts. Kids who will literally rewrite the history of their country and their region, if only we will help give them the opportunity to do so. Without an education, their chances of success are slim.
Will you join us in cheering them on?
Will you join us as we equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to not just survive, but thrive in their future?
Road to Mafraq is excited to announce the launch of its #TinyHands campaign, a fundraising and digital media campaign that will run from Nov. 7 – Dec. 31, 2016, to shine light on the dreams of Syria’s children and to raise money to support their education.
Specifically, the money raised through this campaign will go toward helping us build two more playgrounds for our other partner schools, as well as to fund a girls’ leadership development program for young Syrian and Iraqi refugees living in East Amman, Jordan.
From November 7 – December 31, we’re working to raise $20,000 to support education for child refugees living in Jordan. Here’s how you can help.
You can make a tax-deductible online donation today to support our current campaign. All contributions through December 31 will go toward the funding of two playgrounds at our partner schools, as well as the funding of a girls’ leadership development program for Syrian and Iraqi girls living in Amman, Jordan.
As just one part of our activities for this campaign, we will be selling T-Shirts from Nov. 7 – 28th.
We’re challenging each of our supporters to sell just 10 T-Shirts – enough to raise the money to send a refugee child to school for an entire year. Are you up for the challenge?
T-Shirts can be purchased online and you can download this toolkit for sample social media posts to use in your own promotional efforts. You can also access photos that you can use to help promote your sales. Please download the toolkit below to get started with your campaign.
