Assalaamu Alaikum. My name is Sarah Saleem and I need YOUR help. I'm Psych. grad studying American Sign Language who aspires to be an elementary school teacher and loves the outdoors. 

want to take my passion for hiking to the next level. In Feb 2020, I am taking on the most difficult challenge of my life by trekking to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro with Human Appeal. I’m doing this to raise funds for Syrian Refugee Children, to provide quality education for THEM and Sadaqa Jariya for YOU, InshAllah.

The Syrian Refugee Children have sadly been forgotten among all other chaos in the world today. According to UNICEF, today nearly 3 million Syrian children in and out of the country are out of school. Many of these children are born in the camps in Turkey and have never even seen a school.

Out-of-school children are one of the most vulnerable groups and face multiple child protection risks, including psychosocial distress, child labour, child marriage and other forms of exploitation and abuse.

This trek will reach almost 20,000 ft above sea level and it will be a test to my mind and body to the limit. My goal is to raise $10,000 to sponsor the education of Syrian refugee children.

“Seeking knowledge is mandatory for every Muslim (male and female).” [Bukhari]

Your donations will help towards educating 20,000 Syrian refugee children in Turkey and will provide:

  • computer labs to 34 public schools
  • 2 mobile libraries which will include ICT and internet use 
  • reading campaigns and awareness to improve literacy levels 
  • Teacher training 
  • psychological counselling 

$800 - can provide 4 children with a quality education for two academic years.

Please donate now. 

May Allah reward you immensely for your support. Ameen!
