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! 

Thank you!

Thank you for transforming lives

Educate a Girl Zakaat is for young girls age 4-16 to help them stay in their schools so they could get proper education which further will help them in achieving their dreams.

 

We have been meeting with and taking feedback from girls who have been educated through this program.

Meet Aliya. She is 9 and has a missing right front tooth, giving her a goofy smile and making her beautiful, big brown eyes seem almost enormous in her face.  Her complexion is like soft mocha, but her voice is strong and firm as she shares her dreams.

"I want to become a doctor!"

"A doctor," we ask.  "Are you sure. You are just 6. You may change your mind."

"I won't change my mind," she replies and then looks down to complete the old, beaten up jigsaw puzzle she is trying to put together.

"Why do you want to become a doctor?"

"I want to help people."  Her words are simple and straightforward, but her big eyes share a story of childhood pain that she is not ready to put into words.  

Every time you donate to this cause, you are helping a girl stay in school. Perhaps she will do a trade, maybe she will start a business, maybe she won't even work but she will be educated. And, maybe, like Aliya, she might be starting a journey to a dream that she hadn't dared dream before.

All because of you.

Together we are transforming lives

Girls Need Education

Thank you all for educating girls.

To date, with theh help of all 42 donors including you, we have raised $3,096.86 on GlobalGiving. Each and every girl who gets a chance through this programme needs a helping hand and cannot thank enough donors like you. In many ways, Turkey is modern and full of opportunities. But there are parts in which girls feel shy from trying. They are discouraged from their full potential. It's a country of beauty, grace and amazing entrepreneurship, but sometimes conflicting cultures and confusing direction. Education helps bring about not just opportunity but clarity. An understanding of what one can do with one's life.

Educate a girl or two today. And, if you can't right now then please donate $10 or if you can $100. If each of the 42 donors donated $100, we would raise $4200, which would more than double our funds to date and help us educate 24 more girls!!! That's twenty-four lives changing, just by donating $100 today. Yes, you can make a difference!
