The Sonia Shah School was bombed.
This week has brought the gravest of tragedies: the massacre of 148 at a school in Peshwar–132 of the victims children. Our hearts break for these children and their families, and there are simply no words to express this fully.
A couple days before the attacks in Peshwar, the Sonia Shah Memorial School was bombed. We are beyond grateful that no one was hurt, but the water filtration plant–which provided clean drinking water to more than 700 families–was destroyed. Walls were demolished; windows were shattered.
Sonia’s dream has been damaged, but it will recover. Luckily, we can share with confidence that the villagers are enthusiastic about the development of the school and the water filtration plant. We know we have to rebuild–for the girls, for the villagers, for Sonia. We cannot give in to terrorists, and this devastation, along with the tragedy of Peshwar, shows us that now more than ever, our cause is critical.
We are matching donations until next Sunday.
From now until next Sunday, December 28th at midnight CST, we are matching every penny contributed to our current campaign which will help run the Sonia Shah Memorial School for an entire year and rebuild the water filtration plant, which cost more than $16,000. Your support is more important now than it has ever been before. Stand with us! Let us show the world that we believe in the importance of educating girls and changing the world.
If you have not yet contributed, now is absolutely the time. Double your difference, your influence, your piece of Sonia’s dream. Together we can rise up and say, “You won’t win. We won’t stand for it.”
