Education is a fundamental human right and widespread poverty in Pakistan has deprived thousands of children from this valuable gift. NUR Foundation has been actively involved in providing education to underprivileged children through formal as well as non-formal schools. The focus of this program has not only been on academic education but also on developing students’ mental and physical capacities.
For this reason, we organized funfairs for the students of Malikpur and Lakhodair on November 19 and 26, 2011.Students were given an opportunity to show their talents in a variety of ways, they delivered speeches, sang songs, presented tableaus on national issues and performed different skits.
Similarly, a recreational trip to Sky Land Lahore was arranged on January 7, 2012 .A total of 1550 students were provided transport, food and tickets on discounted rates by the Nur Foundation. Students were extremely excited about this trip. Lunch was served at one o clock.This trip was not just arranged for recreational purposes, students learnt how to move about in a group as a team member, they learnt discipline and on top of it all, they got a chance to experience new things around them. This type of opportunity is not less than a blessing for those who can not afford.
It would not have been possible without the generous donations of our supporters. These schools have now been expanded and are catering to an increasing number of needy children. Thank you for giving the gift of Education to children who could only dream of being educated due to financial limitations.
