Educate a Girl scholars meet with the French Consul General

The French Consul General in Karachi Didier Talpain invited 35 Educate a Girl scholars to his private residence where he taught a lesson on the history of France and Pakistan - in Engish with Urdu translation - and served a wonderful tea spread.

France is a 150 years older than Pakistan and both countries have a fascinating relationship between religion and state. France began as a religious nation and today is secular, while Pakistan began as a nation with freedom to all religions and today is the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and faces several challenges with regard to its religious minority communities.

Although the Educate a Girl scholars are trained vocationally in topics related to their abiity to obtain ad maintain a job, this kind of opportunity and access is what sets Educate a Girl apart from other programs and makes its students and alumni determined to not just do something with their lives, but to know.  

The beauty of the home, the manner of entertaining, the warmth of the host and the exposure from the opportunity will not ever be forgotten by these deserving girls.

Most exciting of all, we are now working on getting a girl or two scholarships to study in France.  The Eiffel tower will no longer be a google search or a picture. It wlll be a part of their reality.
