Girls education needs your help!

By Rukshana | Project Volunteer

With universities and schools closed due to COVID-19, its the girls of the world, paritcularly those in Pakistan, who are suffering the most education-wise. Especially deserving girls don't have laptops to do home study, and the majority of their schools do not have remote study programmes.

Although final exams are on hold, many girls are eager to learn and are reaching out to us through our Educate a Girl and other programmes.  We are working on a viritual training series in Urdu to help these girls learn and develop during this unplanned "time off" so to speak. When school resumes this year, our Educate a Girl zakaat recipients will have overcome more than imagine. During the lockdown, many girls may stop their education path forever as they will be diverted toward helping their home, marrying earlier than otherwise, or other options.  Those girls who end up continuing their studies, will do so against so many odds. More than we can imagine.

Believe in these girls, support them with their education and donate now.
