DIL Children in Northern Pakistan Give Thanks

Nokhaiz Banu delights in her classroom environment
Nokhaiz Banu delights in her classroom environment

Nokhaiz Banu had visited a DIL Community School in Mansehra, Northern Pakistan with her father during an Open House and since that day, demanded to go to school there. She began in Nursery and is now a First Grader. Nokhaiz remembers her first day at school, and recalls the delight she felt. This environment was new for her. She had attended a government school prior with her elder brother and sister. She compares the brightly decorated DIL classroom to the dilapitated environment that she had been used to, and says she will never want to go back there.

Nokhaiz demonstrates an interest in her studies. Her teacher uses activity-based learning in the classroom and spends time nurturing each child's potential. Nokhaiz is quick to raise her hand in the classroom. Due to her hard work, she was first in the Urdu Speech Competition. She also actively participates in co-curricular activities in the school. 

Nokhaiz Banu dreams of becoming a pilot. She is grateful for the love and encouragement from her parents and teachers, and we are grateful to you our donors for making Nokhaiz Banu's new world a reality.
