A Helping Hand

It’s always inspiring to hear about the growth happening in the House of Ruth, a community center serving a cluster of villages in rural Jordan. In their latest update, the GHNI-Jordan team shares how even the students have been inspired by our presence!

House of Ruth, Jordan

“With the multiple English classes running, seeing progress through students’ ability to speak and read has been refreshing. We are excited to have a newly equipped classroom and the students are excited as well.

“As the team was putting together the new desks for the classroom, several of the older girls were there for their English class. They turned to me and asked if they could help the volunteers. There they were, young village girls working alongside the volunteers from Qatar, taking ownership of the center and practicing their English as they worked. Afterwards they all thanked the Qatar team for the new classroom and smiled and laughed as they took pictures of their work.”
