Noor Al Hussein, has faced difficult circumstances in her life that didn’t prevent her from balancing motherhood, work, and education. After her marriage, she was forced to interrupt her studies and work to provide and help her family live with dignity after their displacement. Despite these challenges, she decided to return and continue her educational journey to secure a better future for her children.
From work and motherhood to academic achievements
Noor has lived a challenging life in exile and has experienced many hardships. She couldn’t complete her education due to taking care of her two children and working early in the morning with her family to secure their livelihood and provide a decent life for them. However, despite the difficulties she faces today, Noor hasn’t lost her desire for education. She resumed her studies after a 5-year hiatus when she found a suitable educational opportunity with the Masarat Initiative. In our interview with Noor, she shared her daily life, stating that she is a married woman taking care of her children while working from morning until evening with her family. She seizes every available opportunity to progress in her studies. Noor affirmed that the hope of improving her children’s future motivated her to study. She was able to do so thanks to the free education provided by the Masarat Initiative, which allows her to study the curriculum at home without the need to pay expensive tuition fees.
Hope returns to Noor’s life with Masarat
Noor had felt despair due to her inability to continue her education, but Masarat Initiative became her beacon of hope. The initiative provided her with online education from the comfort of her home, offering a suitable study schedule that allowed her to engage in live lessons with her teachers after returning from work. Noor added, “Masarat Initiative has been a great help in my studies. It has designed a dedicated program for mothers to achieve their educational goals after completing their chores. I can also seek assistance when facing difficulties in my lessons from the teacher delivering the classes. They can explain challenging points and deliver the information easily. However, there is one obstacle she faces, which is poor internet connectivity in the area where she lives and the old phone she uses”.
Masarat: The path to success for mothers
In Syria, there are many girls who have dropped out of school due to early marriage and the challenging economic conditions they face. In light of this, Masarat is keen on helping them achieve their dreams by providing free online education, academic guidance, and student activities. The initiative believes that knowledge is the optimal path to building a better future.
