  1. Amazing Website. I really like it.

  2. You are truly inspiring! Giving children access to education is the best thing you can do for them. This so reminds me of the story of Greg Mortenson who’s been instrumental and directly responsible for building more than 130 schools, mostly for girls in remote regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
