17.01.11: In order to facilitate the flood affected in terms of their development; both social and intellectual, Fatima Memorial Hospital in collaboration with the Nur Foundation has taken the initiative to start an academic project in the area of Haibat Mastui which is located in the outskirts of Dera Ghazi Khan in Pakistan With your generous donations, we have set up an educational institute which at the moment is catering to approximately 300 students. Five teachers, with one Head teacher have divided up these children into sections; teaching and supervising their activities. It is with immense delight that we report that these students which were once absolutely illiterate are now showing enormous progress. Our students can now write alphabets in both English and Urdu as well as count in English and Urdu numeric. These are baby steps but the growth of our students is showing auspicious signs of a much brighter future. Come April, we plan to establish a proper matriculate system which would be at par with the level of education one can find in a well reputed public institute of Pakistan. In these bleak circumstances, the unfortunate and flood affected youth is crying out for a ray of hope which can disentangle them from a web of manifold predicaments. Education is the best tool we can arm them with to be able to strike back at the misfortunes they have been bombarded with. With education, these children will be able to get back on their own feet as independent, self sufficient and responsible citizens. With your help, these children have had a chance to receive proper education; a right which is theirs. Nur Foundation is enormously grateful of all the funds we have been receiving and we would like to pledge for your added support. This is the future of our nation and with your support we will ensure that it is nourished into a sturdy, bright and auspicious tomorrow.
