In 2010, the floods in Pakistan were one of the worst ever seen in county's history.

It destroyed lives and everything they worked for and their parents had worked for in one instance.

The damage was huge from infrastructure, homes, and livestock to arable land and most importantly the lives lost during this calamity.

After the preliminary damage assessment we set up a school in Habit Mastui, District Dera Ghazi Khan in Southern Punjab to educate the children of the flood affectees who were left with literally nothing and were trying to rebuild their lives in whatever way they could.

We are trying to help out in whatever means we can by adopting the families of that area. The setting up of the school and the education it provides will prove to be a strong base for the future of the students studying there.

The students sat for their annual exams

It was a proud moment when children sat for their yearly exams to be promoted to the next class. The perseverance and hard work of our team has borne fruit and to see so many children moving to the next step of their lives gives us the encouragement to keep working. We are hopeful that with the support of donors like you we can not only continue with educating the students we have but also induct new students who we have to turn away due to the shortage of funds.

With your help, we hope to continue with our mission and move forward.

On to the next class
