As a child, my dreams were never like those of children my age; never of toys, new clothes or even a hug. I was always too young for my dreams. My dream was that one day I would be able to take responsibility for my family, provide for them and take care of them like a father would. I also wished that I would be able to make it up for them after all the pain and agony they had suffered in this life.
My father passed away when we were children and my three sisters and I were moved to an orphanage. I was the eldest and my youngest sister was still an infant. Ever since then, my dream has been growing with me day after day; I wanted to work hard, raise enough money to buy a house and have my sisters by my side so that we can be a family again. But how can a little orphaned girl achieve all this without completing her education?
My biggest concern has always been my education; will I graduate high school? Who will support me? The more my fears grew the more motivated I was to work hard and search for the real opportunities that would make me feel safe. Until one day I found out about Al-Aman Fund for the Future of Orphans.
Al-Aman Fund for the Future of Orphans granted me the educational security I was seeking and supported me in completing my university studies. They also stood by me and offered me help, guidance and support through thick and thin.
Today I am sharing with you my joy for having graduated university and finding the job of my dreams!
I am aware that it’s still a long and hard journey, I also know that there will be many obstacles throughout my path, but I believe that life holds a lot of hope and there is still much that we can achieve.
Today, I am willing to do everything in my power to express my gratitude to the Fund and show my support so that others can benefit and have the same opportunities I did.
