            Nadia, Roula and Manar

You live in your country, in the world , interacting with
people around the whole world, so you must be a global
citizen who belongs to the whole world, in which you are not
limited only to your country. Being a Global citizen is very
important part in any society. And it's an honor to any
person to be a global citizen. Suha A'foni a 46 year old lady
is a principle of a blind school for children called the
Friends of the Blind Association. Friends of the Blind
Association is a Non profit Association was founded in
1976, it aims to support and custody blind and poor
eyesight children from West Bank aged 5-18 years old by
providing them with the essential services such as
educational and supportive methods that help them in
return to gain all the knowledge and skills to be productive
in this society. Suha is one of many who cares about the
blind, and also cares about whoever needs. She teaches the
blind all what they have to know to be just like any seeing
person. She loves her job so much and feels that the school is
like her home. She bonds with her students in her lovely and
respectful way. All the students think of her as a mother and
even more, because she treats them equally with no
difference between them. She doesn’t care about there
gender, race, religion, or even their citizenship, the only
thing she wants is to provide them with the most help they
need. . Suha also helps anyone in need and tries her best to
improve there lives, and that’s what she did in order to
teach the blind to write; she bought from her own income a
-Braille- type writer so that her students here in Palestine
can write just like any other person. She provided it to the
blind to print materials to enrich their knowledge in
different issues. She established a printing center to print
all the school books in Braille language in addition to the
holy Quran books and entertainment and scientific books.
And established a Center for selling manual Braille
machines, roll papers, devices, and programs relevant to
blind and provide the center with professional technicians
for maintenance purposes She also Supports blinds
coming from poor and bad financial backgrounds to have
their higher education. They also have a website for the
blind showing how they live and what they do the website is She doesn't only help blind people here in
Palestine, but she also travels around helping those in need.
She went to Jordan a month ago and visited the blind and
helped them as much as she could. She advices everyone to
visit the blind and socialize with them and become there
friends. She made a website only about the blind. So in
conclusion we consider Suha as a true global citizen and
wish we will all take her as an outstanding example.
Because she is everything a global citizen is; she cares
about the blind every where in the world and doesn’t
discriminate between them. and every single one of us
can be a global citizen in his/her way. Helping the blinds is
one of those ways in which you can be a global citizen.
