Now that schools are full time open, your donations are critical in enabling girls to be educated. Rather than just helping around the house, learning skills at school is critical for girls, whether or not they go on to work. And, your donation goes towards keeping them in school so that all efforts are made that they can not just learn, but pursue careers should they want. 

Being on the ground as we are, it still amazes us that in 2022 we are still having the conversation around girl education. Girls have every right equal to boys to be educated, but culturally they are not encouraged the same way.

Your donation is the very bridge that is needed to ensure that finances are not the reason a girl is stop from being educated.

Thank you! Your generous truly transforms lives.

Education is the key to a girl's future.  To a better life.  To a better livelihood.  To a better everything.

During the tough COVID-19 years, education suffered for many and young girls in Pakistan in particular.  Your donations and support really made a difference as we went virtual and tried to facilitate girls access to learning, if not always full education.  The more deserving the girl, the harder it was for her to have access to proper education, even if she had abundant time. 

Now, we fortunately seem to be coming out of COVID-19 era and children are back in school and learning in person. The girls are benefitting every single day and working hard to make their dreams come true.

Thank you for supporting them throughout.

The more humble schools did not have virtual learning, nor teachers geared to teach in this way.

Now, we fortunately seem to be coming out of COVID-19 era and children are back in school. The girls are back in school.  At home, they were often serving the male members of their family and focus on family talk were their marriages, not their self-development or career opportunities.

Thank you for supporting them throughout.

Schools are back on and life is resuming normality to some degree.  However, for many girls, time list meant education lost.

Eisha (name changed), 8, spent the past year in a half at home. Sometimes she played with her sisters, sometimes, she helped her mother with the household. What she wasn't doing was formally learning school subjects.

Your funds were critical in that they gave girls like Eisha access to short online lessons which she could watch when she had access to internet, rather than only at specific times. This flexibility enabled her to access learning, even in less than ideal circumstances.

She would listen and learn when her family was asleep at night. She found it most peaceful and productive for her.

The fourth wave of COVID-19 has hit Pakistan - the Delta Variant - and is expected to be worse than the previous three combined.  Schools have been shut again with no announced date to reopen.

Since no one actually knows what the impact will be, certainly the young girls are feeling lost and disheartened with the current situation.

Your donations are going toward ensuring their education continues, whether via reading books at home, assignments via email, or even classes that take place sporadically when there is a dip in COVID-19 numbers.

It is a struggle and unknown territory, but we must keep prioritizing educaiton and ensuring these girls in need don't fall behind.

Believe in these girls, support them with their education and donate now so whatever happens, girls can still get an education.
