Be the voice for the voiceless.


As humans, we all want to have meaning in our life. What is it like to have no home, no peace, no security, no hopes, and no country? For many refugees, this is all they know. If we do not care, we become irrelevant.


The Girl Who Taught Herself to Fly

Kwan Kew Lai met her first Punjabi woman doctor while lying in a hospital bed with a severe kidney infection at the age of fourteen. Watching the woman walk away down the hall, Kwan Kew was convinced she could, and would, carve out her own destiny.

In The Girl Who Taught Herself to Fly, the author weaves in her family’s story of joy, sorrow, loss, love, and endless struggles with poverty and hunger. This poignant memoir, with universal and timeless themes, will leave you in awe.
