Tears Hope and the Power of Education

Emotionally rivetting insight and details into the challenges faced by children, particularly girls in dangerous crisis zones. I cried and at t he same time felt a surge of HOPE that with power of investing in education the wants and dreams of girls can be a reality. Thanks for this amazing podcast and I look forward to the next one.

Heart wrenching, yet heart warming.

Bringing a perspective of how desperate lives can be provided with hope by strategies that seem so "easy". The voices of real children and women telling their stories...
