Thanks to all of you and your generosity, we are getting close to completing fundraising on Phase 2 of the project - building a solar electricity run medical clinic in a community without a hospital. We have just $11,000 left to raise to close Phase 2 funding and install the clinic. Our goal is to help create a more resilient community and reduce carbon footprint, but more than anything, to ensure those with medical needs in areas without a hospital can get the help they need.
Since the hurricane, locals have been carrying more items that are useful in disasters, like candles, light bulbs, medicines, flashlights, insect repellent, and propane gas, but we saw from the response to Phase One, that solar panels give a different degree of confidence and security to those who felt isolated, scared and vulnerable when the hurricane came.
Medical emergencies, however, cannot be planned, and we are determined through Phase 2 to ensure safe, easily accessible medical help.
Thank you for all your help. We are now near the home stretch. Together, let's make a difference.

We need your help
By Rafia Khatak - Project Volunteer
Thank you for supporting this cause.
Girls work hard but very often are not acknowledged for it and your donation is helping us encourage them in pursuing their dreams.
Meet Anya. She's 22 and from a rural area, taking a bus 45 minutes to reach university. There has never been a girl in her family to go to higher education and she's determined to not waste this opportunity. When she found out she was the top student in her subject, she was over the moon. When she learned there was a possiblity she may get a Gold medal to put up in her home commemorating this honour, she was speechless. She had never had something celebrating her own achievements and certainly not for her brains. Thank you for helping us make her dream come true.
We have raised with your help $150 out of our $1000 goal. Please consider donating again as well as spreading the word.
The girls are eager to be recognized and this opportunty won't come again for them. In most cases, they are the first girl in their family to ever go to university.
Help us make a difference in their lives.

Join us in helping our environment

Thank you so much for donating to Plant a Tree in Karachi - Help Climate Change. We've almost raised $4000 and are very close to our goal of raising $5000 to plant 416 trees.
The Philippines, a tropical island nation in the Pacific, will now require by law all graduating students from elementary school to college plant 10 trees each before they can graduate. (Forbes) There is no such law in Pakistan and with the increasing population, there is greater need then ever.
Your donation is truly going to make a difference. Help us start planting by completing our goal of $5000. Donate today - celebrating the start of summer - just $10 to plant one tree or $20 for two. If all 56 donors receiving this message donates $10, we will raise $560 and be at $4264, and if everyone donates $25, we will exceed our goal!
Let the summer begin with planting of trees and climate change for the better!
