COVID-19 numbers go up and down and now Pakistan is facing the third wave, this tougher variant from the UK and times are scary, particularly for youth, and particularly for young girls who often are not told the truth about what is happening, even when they may be losing loved ones, particularly elders. This has resulted in schools finallly opening and thereafter closing again.

This is very disorientating as well as depressing for some girls, although all realize it's for safety. 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 education and ensuring these girls in need don't fall behind. Believe in these girls, support them with their education and donate now.

COVID-19 numbers are rising and the life of students is more confusing than ever. In Western countries, education is becoming more and more virtual. In Pakistan, there simply isn't existing infrastructure to enable that, especially not for struggling families and their daughters.

With universities and schools set to reopen in September, we are fundraising to help education be back on track. Although SOPS will be in place, the Government of Pakistan is determined to restore traditional education. Private schools in many cases will be experimenting with sophisticated online learning, including PE online! 

While the schools are trying to find their way, Educate a Girl has been holding virtual supplementary conferences with powerful, inspiring speakers on You Are Not Defined by The Colour of Your Skin."

In Pakistan, it is the young girls who bear the brunt of colorism and it really damages their self-esteem, cripples their motivation and ambition. This was the first such conference in Pakistan's history and was opened by Mrs. Samina Alvi, wife of the President Of Pakistan (we have permission to publish her name).

More than 3 million deserving girls, stuck at home during Covid, had access to and some even spoke at this training.

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

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 putting together 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 scholars 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.

Thank you all for educating girls. 

To date, we have educated 2600 girls in Pakistan, and with the help of all 479 donors including you, we have raised $74,231 on GlobalGiving.  

We have witnessed the impact on each girl's life. Take Bushra (name changed as per GG policy), who has started a home based start-up to connect people to home cleaners. Or Aisha (name changed) who has designed a website selling colouree henna. She was trained through our e-commerce Educate a Girl training.  The stories continue and continue.  

So, as 2019 ends. Why not end the year on the magical note of transforming another life. Educate a girl or two today.  And, if you can't right now then please donate $10. If each of the 479 donors donated $10, we would raise $4,790, which is the education of 40 girls!!!  If you of you donate $100, 400 girls will be educated. That's four hundred lives changing, just by donating $10 today.  Yes, you can make a difference!
