Young People Making A Difference

It is always good to hear about young people making a positive difference and not getting into trouble. Today’s blog will be about a young girl by the name of Tara Suri who is making a real difference around the world.

Tara’s goal is to help provide for kids around the world who aren’t being properly looked after. A trip to India with her family broadened her view of the world and also allowed her to see the plight of poor children without families of their own. Motivated by this, she set out to help orphans in Sudan and Iran.

She founded a organization called H.O.P.E. This acronym stands for Helping Orphans Pursue Education. It helps to provide kids with the opportunity to reach their full potential by assisting them in getting the basics such as food and shelter.

She has since developed an umbrella organization called Aandolan that oversees all three of her other companies, Turn Your World Around, Connect A Kid and H.O.P.E.

We, as parents, should encourage our kids to get involved with helping people in the world around them. By educating them on the plight of others, they may be motivated to take action. If they are not, find an organization that you feel is worthy and have your child volunteer, raise money or get involved in some way, shape or form. It will make them a much better human being and global citizen.

    What an inspiring story. :-) I was so pleased recently when my daughter’s second grade class decided to raise money to send to Haiti. It just melted my heart when my 8-year-old chose to give all the contents of her piggy bank. The world could definitely benefit from more young people like Tara Suri.
