Girls Transforming the World

At the time I told them I want to start a school, they told me that I can’t afford because it is too expensive. I stood firm and say to my self “fatma you can do it”
Months letter I started my school at my home place. I do teach little kids in the morning like the other nursery school does although this one of mine is free. And In the evening I do teach primary school children as a tuition center.
I do love my work because I finally worn to help people living in poverty. Since it has always being my dream to do that.
Current I am doing my best to register my small center for visiting nursery children which have been operating for almost three months now. Also I own the piece of land 18000square miter large in southern highland region which I have sanctified to be used for god sake.
The challenge I am facing now is that I don’t have enough funds to employ other women as my wishes.
Also I still can’t help to the level I have dreamt of, that some days to come I would have a large house for street children to stay as their home.
There fore as a mother and woman I transform the world through educating our children.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Girls Transform the World Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring girls greater access to education which will transform their lives, their families, and communities. The Girls Transform Campaign elicits insightful content from young women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as women, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

I wish you well as you teach the nursery children each morning and the primary children each evening. How lucky those children are to have you as their teacher--I know that you love them! I wish your dream of making a home for the street children comes true.
