TITLE OR SUBJECT OF REPORT
Breaking myths around children from slum areas
PROJECT REPORT
We always hear a lot of myths around children from slum areas. Mainly in Pakistan, we get to hear how kids from slum areas are ill-mannered and cannot be a part of our normal and educated society. Due to all these myths, a lot of people do not interact with these children and the myths are never challenged. However, recently Muwakhat Foundation held a grand Iftaar for the families in the slum areas affected by the pandemic. The grand Iftaar was held for about 150 people. Due to the third wave of the pandemic, Muwakhat Foundation was unfortunately short on volunteers to help arrange the grand Iftaar for about 150 people. The grand Iftaar was held at the slum area. The families were open to offer help to the volunteers. The children helped the only 2 available female volunteers arrange the area. There were about 15 children who helped. Their ages ranged from anywhere to 5 years old to 12. The children helped set up the sitting area. They helped washed the dishes. They even dried the dishes. Few children were smart enough to even arrange the dining area properly and place sets of plates and glasses. They knew basic numbers in English and set 15 sets of crockery per 5 rows. They counted the sets themselves and placed all the crockery themselves. They then followed the instructions of the female volunteers and placed dates, mangoes, bananas, and samosas on each set. After the grand Iftaar was over, the children even helped wrap up everything. They helped pack up everything and arrange it in an orderly manner. With this experience, it became obvious that these children should not be underestimated and with just a little help, they can easily be a part of our normal society.

Now Muwakhat Foundation is focusing on Food and Education for these children and on a special Education program for girls. We would like your support in these programs to help these children reach their potential.
