"I believe that educating refugee girls is extremely important. After reading this book, I hope that you understand why so many refugee girls deserve the education they are so desperate to receive. If you feel at all inclined to help these girls reach their dreams of attending university, please do not hesitate! All of the proceeds from this book and any donations received will go towards setting up university scholarships for refugee girls at the Morneau Shepell Secondary School for Girls."
