COVID-19 and the current American education system are difficult to adapt to for children living in this country. The program aims to cover topics such as managing and balancing self-care, financial literacy, college admissions, and not losing deen through this process. Girls are strongly encouraged to join the program, as the goal of the program is to provide support and encouragement for pursuing further education careers.

More About Gifting Dreams:

We want to positively impact the refugee/low-income youth through our program, as beyond donations, there isn’t anything that fulfills this. Being able to handle mental health as a teenager and understanding how to adapt to the American school system are critical for a successful, independent lifestyle. In addition to this, having Islamic-oriented discussions that are relevant to the modern day is also needed to strengthen the deen, as well as maintain faith throughout the school years.
