Dear Blossom Hill Family,
Today, on International Day of the Girl, Blossom Hill is proud to support the refugee girls in our programs who are accessing their rights to education and earning a livelihood. Every day, girls around the world are breaking boundaries and barriers, tackling issues like child marriage, education inequality, and inequitable access to healthcare. When given a chance, girls are at the forefront of change and are unstoppable.
Through empowering programs, our girls have dared to dream big! Each and every day, we work to support the many things a girl can be — a musician, a business owner, a scientist, a teacher, a coder. Our initiatives span early childhood, adolescence, and youth to make sure girls are supported at every stage of development. Here are some of the girls we are celebrating today!
Israa, 6, is a Syrian refugee who graduated from Blossom Hill’s Montessori-inspired Early Childhood Center and is attending first grade this fall. She is now well-positioned to succeed in elementary school having mastered early academic and social skills. She is also continuing to enjoy her friends who graduated with her in the rural town of Azraq, Jordan.
