November 2012 Girls Ed Pakistan Project Update

Dear Girls Ed Supporters,

Thank you for your continuing support.  We were especially excited to be able to share with the girls the overwhelming number of you who responded with new and increased donations after the attack on Malala Yousafzai; a clear signal to them that we will continue to support their courageous endeavors to move themselves and their communities forward.  Although her road to recovery will be long, Malala's strong spirit is apparent in her continually improving condition.

We are happy to report that the girls in Laphi and Sar Kalan have experienced no threats to or interference in their studies.  Further, as our local contact, Bedari, reports, "[A]n overwhelming majority of the people of Pakistan is in favor of girls education and has condemned the cowardly attack on Malala."  Unfortunately, educating girls in countries like Pakistan remains a challenge in overcoming pre-established norms and cultural bias.  Mainstream education of girls is not likely to occur anytime in the near future. 

With your support, though, Girls Ed will continue to provide assistance to those families in Pakistan that see the value of an education for all of their children, male or female.  We will help to provide the economic resources not available to girls through the Pakistani government so that they can attain a better future for themselves and their communities.

With gratitude,

Loni Riley, Board Member GEI
