A New Year - A New Beginning

As the sun set in for the new year, we are working towards our goal to empower the communities we serve with renewed passion and vigor

The schools that the NUR Community Outreach Program launched in 1995 has had more than 20 batches graduating and currently almost 2000 children are studying in those schools. Coming from impoverished backgrounds a proper meal on the table is sometimes just not possible.

While we would like to arrange for lunch everyday however given the limited resources we are able to ensure weekly lunches and with your support we hope to make these lunches a daily exercise.

So the pictures you see are from the Lakhudair Branch of the NUR Foundation School where almost 420 students had Chicken Biryani.

The loud chatter, the excitement and the smiles of these children make it all worthwhile.

 

Thank you for your support!

The Cycle of Change

The standard of living of people is an amalgamation of health, education and employment, such that one without the two cannot improve the socioeconomic status of the population. The NUR Foundation adheres to this principle, which has formed footing for its NUR Community Outreach Program. As of today, more than 18000 students from a low socioeconomic background have completed their primary and secondary education through the NUR Foundation schools. In addition, the NUR Community Outreach Program’s health component encompasses of a holistic community health provision model that comprises of primary health care centers, food banks and mobile health units that are dedicated towards improving the health indicators of the population. Lastly, vocational training and micro-financing opportunities through NUR have opened new avenues for people to enhance their skills and has broken the cycle of poverty and dependability.

‘Of the many inspiring stories, one such story is of Rihanna who belonged from a poor household in the outskirts of Lahore. With the help of her teachers at the Nur Foundation schools she was able to complete her matriculation and went ahead with further education. She is now able to afford a good lifestyle not only for herself but also for her family. Today she is working as a receptionist at a local clinic and is able to afford education for her younger sisters.Rihanna continues to be a source of inspiration for her juniors at the NUR foundation schools’.

The Moon Sighting !

Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated after a month of fasting and sighting of the new moon. The moon sighting is met with joy and jubilation to celebrate the end of the fasting month. Eid-ul-Fitr is marked by food, festivities, Eidis (money packets for children) and new clothes. While this may be a joyous occasion met with happiness and smiles for many this is not the case. So many children in Pakistan live below the poverty line which means having three square meals a day is a blessing.

While we can’t the change the lives many but at NUR Foundation School we make sure that every Eid the children of the school receive a new set of clothes for Eid. The children come from impoverished backgrounds and while giving them an education will take them forward in the future but seeing there joy makes all the effort worthwhile

This has only been possible with the support of donors and we hope the support will continue. 

However, with rising costs it is becoming difficult with each passing year and we will like your support so we can continue with our tradition so we can see the bright light in each child’s eyes which has been dimmed by the reality of their lives.
