Thank you for all your support and donations. Our project "A Training Center to Support 400 Women Every Year" has managed to raise an amount of $1,715 since it has been uploaded.
We would also like to thank the donors who have supported us during the 2 matching campaigns which also contributed in the support. But there has been a serious decline in raising funds especially for this project during the recent quarters at GlobalGiving.We will start working out on the initial structure of the building once we get the best quotation and raise a significant amount.
We have received a good news for this project that one of our partner organization has agreed to assist us in the construction of the building. Though the assistance would only help to complete some part. Therefore we are reducing the asked amount for this project and hope that we will be able to complete the rest of the part through GlobalGiving.
The donation process for this project is relatively slower as compared to our other initiatives, therefore we request all our supporters to please help us to achieve our target to support poor women and girls.
So far, AWARD has utilized the upper vacant portion of its current building and have started the training center for the poor young girls. Nearly 65 girls have completed their training to learn beautician skills to earn livelihood and support their families. 60 girls are managed between 2 different shifts (evening and morning ) due to small space.The duration of the training is 6 months.
The training center will be shifted to the new building when it will be constructed. Two of the batch has already been passed out. The girls are very excited and happy to learn the skills and hope that this skill will help them improve their livelihood situation as the demand for the beautician is very high. These girls after completing their training will either start their own businesses or get employed in the other well-established beauty parlors. The admissions are open for the young poor girls to learn this skill.
Once again we request you to help us achieve our target.

12 th report on Carbon Free Water
By Azeem Christopher - Program Leader
Thank you very much for all the donations. AWARD Pakistan has taken an initiative to raise funds for the installation of hand pumps and water wells. The first phase of installing the 3 water wells and 1 water hand-pump has been successfully over and the dedicated team of AWARD Pakistan is in communication with the community members.
Unfortunately , the donations for this project have declined seriously during the last year. The amount collected during the last two quarters is not enough to initiate a water well or a handpump as the process is pretty much costly in the mountainous areas. We are trying our best to engage our supporters so that we can start installing a water well in other areas too. The access to the areas due to heavy snowfall has been blocked. AWARD Pakistan’s Regional Coordinator Mr. Mustafa is in contact with the community of the 4 areas (Jageer and Grang Maidaan, Shawaal Maidaan and Baisiyaan).
The beneficiaries are satisfied and they are using this provided facility with great responsibility. The communities have promised to protect the facility at any cost. We hope to raise enough funds to start installing the water wells again in the next quarter in the new areas.
AWARD wants to initiate this project in other far flung areas therefore, we request all our donors and supporters to donate us for this cause to provide children and women (living on the mountains), an access to the carbon-free and safe drinking water.
