Project Report | May 7, 2020
Kashmir Students Study from Home Amidst Lockdown

By Ambereen Siddiqui | Director - HOPE USA

Dear HOPE Friends, 

I hope that this update finds you and your families safe and healthy during this unprecedented time!  Like most of the world, the coronavirus pandemic has brought about changes for the students you are supporting in the HOPE Kashmir home schools.  The schools have officially been closed as of March 10, but students have been receiving homework from their teachers to complete on their own so they do not fall behind.  Obviously the schools in Kashmir are not equipped for "e-learning" as in the United States, but the teachers are doing their best in light of the situation.  Additionally, the HOPE home school teachers are continuing to receive their salaries amidst the lockdown so as to not impose an economic hardship on their families.   

Because the students that the HOPE school serves are children of daily wage earners, their families have been adversely affected by the lockdown.  In order to alleviate their financial hardship, the HOPE USA team will devote all extra funds collected for this project during the lockdown towards food rations for these families. 

We are aiming to raise money to feed at least 200 families. 

 

For just $20 we are delivering grocery rations to these needy families.  

One ration bag can feed 6 people for one month and includes the following: 

 

Wheat flour for tortillas- 11 pounds: $2.60

Rice - 6.6 pounds - $3.60

Lentils - 2.2 pounds - $1.60

Milk powder - 0.5 pounds - $3.50 

Sugar - 4.4 pounds - $1.50

Cooking oil 1 quart - $2.20

Tea leaves - 0.5 pounds - $4.50

Bag packing/delivery - $0.50

_______________________________

TOTAL             $20.00

You can participate in this effort by donating towards this campaign.  Thank you to all of you for helping those less fortunate!

 

Best regards, 

Ambereen Siddiqui
