Abdulrahman Bindamnan has an excellent series on Zero Generation Students and the challenges they face. We're extremely proud of his successes and hope you will take the time to not only read what's already been written but follow the series.
His latest article was co-written with Murad Subih, one of the students we sponsor. His journey, both academic and actual, to get to the United States was difficult, but his time here has been harder due to the tough times we've all faced during the pandemic. Our donations have not surged but have fallen, which has caused Murad to work part-time to support himself while he finishes his fellowship at Harvard. Read about his story, hopes, and dreams here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/zero-generation-students/202301/from-yemen-to-harvard-why-not
