Greetings of peace.
In our quest to bring you diverse stories of successful Libyan women, we
present you Khadija Wawo. With few resources available to her, Khadija
is able to greatly aid and improve her community. From a western
perspective, her community may seem poor, but her life and experiences
are rich beyond imagination. With this Spotlight issue, we bring you
more than the story of a remarkable woman as we introduce her hometown,
Ghadames, a historic city in the Sahara desert.
There are many lessons we can learn from khadija, for instance, how
vital and rewarding it is to give to the community as one strives for
personal improvement. We hope the Spotlight articles will further
encourage you to support Tibra's efforts in building a healthy civil
community; it takes every individual to effect improvement.
And as a brief update, we remind you that the deadline for nominations
to the 2004 Tibra Awards is February 1, 2004. So far, we have a complete
set of judges and four promised nominations. We urge you to help us find
more nominees for this year and meet our financial target to fund the
Best wishes for health and prosperity in the new year from all of us at
the Tibra Foundation.
