WHAT OUR VOLUNTEERS SAY

A.A., New York - USA

Both of my students are smart, driven and bright young ladies. It’s such a delight to be able to have a positive impact on their lives, while getting to know them and learning from them at the same time.

N.B., Doha - Qatar

It’s rewarding to support a young educated girl, who doesn’t have enough resources but has a huge capacity and faith in herself, and who is trying hard and does her best.

Z.D., London - UK

We encountered such an enthusiastic group of students that we established an English Book Club with 4 volunteers and 4 students. Our first book was of course The Little Prince!
