Give a free book to a Pakistani child

Time to read

By Rafea Khattak | Project Volunteer

Aliya (name changed), 6, had never read a book. One day, she noticed the roasted corn her father was snacking on was packaged in an upcycled old newspaper made into a pocket. She was fascinated by the letters she could see on the paper. She wished she could read.

Whether it's a Pakistani "Dick & Jane" equivalent or Early Reader book, a basic ABC reader is not easily accessible to the masses in Pakistan. Your contribution is facilitating this for children, changing forever their lives. 

Aliya is just one girl. One for whom your donation is making a difference. Thank you. 

Please spread the word and continue to give.
