$1 a Day to End Extreme Poverty

As each year comes to a close, we wonder how we can make the new year even better than the last. We set goals and resolutions, we make plans, and we set our hopes high.

Maybe your new year's resolution is to make the world a better place in 2019, but you don’t know where to start. If that’s you, you’re in the right place.

Giving Tuesday Unofficial Results

On behalf of all of GHNI's staff, volunteers, villagers, and partners, we would like to sincerely thank you for all you did to support us on Giving Tuesday this year!

Whether you were a donor, advocate, or social networker, you played a key role in our Giving Tuesday success. The numbers are still being finalized, but here's a summary of what we know so far.





Motivated by Gratitude

The war is awful, but HOPE is more powerful and joyful and helps to overcome all the sorrows and suffering.

Families are living in tents made of wood, nylon, and cartons. Life is very hard in these uncomfortable conditions, very hot in summer and cold in winter. After eight years of war, nothing has changed.


Overcoming Horror and Regaining Hope

*Aliye is an Iraqi refugee from Qaraqosh village. She left her village when a violent group attacked Mosul and the surrounding villages. She moved to Erbil with her family and since they didn’t have a place to stay, they stayed at a community center for a couple months. They had to share the same hall and bathroom with thousands of people. The situation was miserable.  


Helping Dreams Be Realized

In Al Mufradat, Maliha's 16-year-old daughter, Rahma, has learning difficulties and there is not a school that will accept her. She doesn’t know how to read or speak properly, and she needs special attention. GHNI helped by providing a special teacher to teach her. Rahma has a dream to be a doctor one day and we can't wait to see her achieve that dream of hers. She has such a pure heart and wants to help many.
