Worth Investing

Today I would like to introduce two things: A way of fundraising for good causes and an amazing project by a brave Muslim woman.

Kickstarter “is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world.” The page helps people find others who believe in their projects. Be it films or documentaries or technology, design or food. Kickstarter helps you connect with people who will help you fund your idea. The money changes hands only if the desired amount can be raised within a clearly defined timeframe, so only the best ideas will actually succeed.

There are truly amazing projects on the webpage, check it out, you might just as well run into something worth investing in.

One interesting idea which just got helped through Kickstarter is The Light in Her Eyes. A documentary, which is already in production, raised money to complete the editing. The film tells the story of Houda al-Habash a young Syrian woman about whom the film-makers say: “She’s passionate, inspiring, and often contradictory” , that is why they wanted to portray her.

What is Houda al-Habash’s story? She is a preacher, successfully bridging women’s emancipation and Islamic belief. At the age of only 17, she founded the Al-Zahra Qur’an school for girls in Damascus. Houda al-Habash helps young Muslim women find their place in our fast-changing society and giving them what they most desire: education.

Below you can watch the trailer of the documentary. It will also help you understand why it is important for young Muslim women to carefully study the Qur’an.

You can find more information on the movie on www.thelightinhereyes.com.
