Happy Education Inspiring our Boarders
This week our boarders had the opportunity to hear from inspirational guest speaker Naba Masad Alfayadh who fled Iraq as a child and has recently graduated as a doctor.
Naba spoke to us about her charity Happy Brain Education.
Inspired to help others and make a difference Naba established Happy Brain Education two years ago to raise funds to treat the medical needs of a six year old Iraqi boy. By offering tutoring she and her friends raised the funds to provide the young boy cardiac surgery.
Last year Happy Brain Education raised $250,000 and this year $200,000 is the goal.
Our tutors in the Boarding House are all members of Happy Brain Education and each week monies are donated to the charity.
Naba is a truly inspirational role model, so much so, one of our boarders has been inspired to pursue a career in medicine, follow on from Naba’s stories.
