“I STAND WITH GIRLS”, beyond the #Hashtags

On 6th February I shared a story about 17-year-old Lyna Rajab who was on the verge of dropping out of school.
A month later, I am excited to report that I escorted Lyna to Salima Secondary school yesterday.
A BIG THANK you to all members of the ‘Lyna’s Hope’ Facebook group who selflessly contributed money to enable Lyna to go to school.

THANK YOU to all who shared Lyna’s story with family and friends. THANK YOU to all who were praying for the success of the initiative.
Without your action, Lyna’s story would go down as one of the most ‘liked’ post without any impact.
Beyond the #IStandWithGirls hashtag, there are people really standing with girls.
I am overwhelmed!!
