Below are reflections from BADIR fellows on their experiences through the program.

 

“BADIR not only developed me into a Program leader, but also into a social entrepreneur. My experience with BADIR has definitely allowed me to expand my program and, in turn, create a better world for deaf children while empowering their families."

- Daliah Jarrar, 2015 BADIR Fellow, Founder of Bright Life.

 

 

 “Being a part of such an esteemed network of social innovators and change makers has been a great honor. With the funding I was given, I was able to fully bring my vision to life and to make things possible for myself, as well as for the students participating in my program. I was also able to create a curriculum that will benefit more than 350 students across three cities, with plans to expand to other cities soon thanks to BADIR.”
