Six months ago Charlotte Scott of Island Bay School donated her Harry Potter books to Make Foundation with a note to whoever ended up reading them.
“Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.”
It’s taken some time for us to find a young Syrian with all the magic ingredients to meet Charlotte’s wish – a good enough level of English, a passion for reading and of course a love of wizards.
But like a good magic tale she “suddenly appeared” – Rama Awad.
Rama who is from the city of Homs, came to New Zealand earlier this year and is studying at Te Aro Primary School in Wellington.
She recently took part in Make Foundation’s Leaving Home project with Seatoun Primary School.
Make Foundation youth campaigner Naia Alkhouri presented the books to Rama on behalf of Charlotte.
We really hope you enjoy these wonderful adventures Rama.
