iishraq, together we rise

We are delighted to share a blog written by student Ambareen, from Al forsan International school, who is part of team LOT delivering a Global Goals project for the 2020-21 GSL Global Goals Competition.

Their project is among over 957 social action projects currently running as part of the GSL movement and we are excited to be supporting them to design and lead positive social change in their community. 

Initiative for betterment of others brought Happiness, satisfaction and inner joy to us.

Project Summary

IISHRAQ means sunrise and we believe that just like the dawn education brings light and colour in one’s life, hence we named our initiative after it . The change we want to bring is to give underprivileged children worldwide the opportunity to hone their skills and acquire new abilities through our development program.

As part of our development program, we offer painting, health, and environmental science workshops to indignant children. But first, we devised a creative fundraising strategy that allows us to collect funds by giving tuitions online, selling artworks online, selling baked goods, and offering to mentor individuals in specific subjects. We have established volunteering teams all over the world who are willing to help us with our endeavours. Furthermore, we aim to raise awareness and accomplish our desired goals, which include quality education, good health and well-being, and partnerships for the goals.

The Journey

After carrying out three workshops for underserved children in India, Philippines and Egypt we have learned that if you start on something good to help others, people will join you through the way and contribute naturally, and the journey will start being easier. Your one step for change will grow a family that will together help others. Like our small initiative has developed into a prominent family in 5 different countries consisting of amazing volunteers who help us bring a positive impact in the lives of so many children. This competition has brought about a positive change in everyone’s lives who’s associated with IISHRAQ. We learned new skills, from creating websites to public communication.

The Next Chapter

After carrying out three workshops for underserved children in India, Philippines and Egypt, our next two workshops are in Congo and Australia. After all the five workshops, we will call it a wrap for our first project, but we will continue with our fundraising as we have amazing plans for the future. I highly recommend other young students like us to start an initiative like this to help the world rise together. I certainly believe that if you have the potential to help the community, you should not wait to make your share of contribution for the betterment of others.
