The path to a better future can only be paved through education. Quality education is not accessible for many and we would like your help in bringing it within reach of every child in Pakistan. Better education will enable children in rural and urban slums of Pakistan, who are generally the most vulnerable and susceptible to poverty and exploitation, develop to their full potential and lead a dignified and meaningful life.

DIL has and will continue to work towards achieving this goal of enabling every individual, girl or boy, to realize their right to educ[ation. Our goals are set, but we need your continued help in bringing them to life. On behalf of the school community, students and teachers, DIL would like to extend a huge thank you to all who have contributed so generously.

THANK YOU!

 

Meet Shafaq - DIL School, Orangi

My name is Shafaq and I completed my studies from DIL Junior School, Orangi. I don’t remember the age when my father bought a bat and a ball for me but I can still recall that day, when I felt like the richest person in the world. I started playing cricket on the streets with my friends in the neighborhood when I was a kid. During my childhood there was nothing else on my mind except cricket. I was so passionate about cricket that I didn’t care about my health or routine tasks. I feel so reluctant to say that I never completed my homework on time. With a little encouragement and guidance from my teachers I realised that I was a good manager, keeping a balance between studies and my passion. I gained confidence in myself when I got very good marks in my exams.

With the blessing and support of my parents and confidence building in my school, now, I am assured that I can turn my dream of being an all-rounder cricketer into reality. When I got admission in DIL Junior School, I heard that about the sports period which made me feel ‘OH yes!!!’ I used to wait for Saturday so that I can enjoy that period. I remember that how I gradually improved at cricket by playing at school and with friends. I performed better than the boys in both batting and bowling. Although now I am a DIL graduate, my school principal still supports me. I took admission in Customs Cricket Academy under the management of Mr. Jalal-u- Din and Shahid Khan Afridi, and was supported by the Pakistan Cricket Academy. It was 27th December 2016 when I got the best all-rounder award from the Customs Cricket Academy (C.C.A) and on 11th February, I got the best performance award from Karachi’s No.1 College “Saint Lawrence’s Government Degree College”. Now, I dream to play for the Pakistan Women Cricket Team and become world’s no 1 all-rounder player.

Dear Supporters and Friends of DIL

When we asked you to help us construct the DIL Guff School, you delivered! You helped raise $6,602 for Guff school. The newly constructed DIL Guff School Campus is open. Today children from Guff village along with children from five surrounding villages are attending the school you helped us build.  A Parent Teachers Association (PTA) has also been formed and is already functional.  

On behalf of Guff School community, students, and teachers, DIL would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who have contributed so generously towards the successful construction and completion of this school.

Upon the successful completion of Guff School, DIL has pledged its support to help construct a Girls Middle School in Dir. A community member has already donated land for constructing the school building. This is an area where few if any pupose built schools exist, next to none for girls! Do take a minute and visit the DIL Zarbaig School at http://www.globalgiving.co.uk/pr/14200/proj14160a.html .

144 Zarbaig primary school children are already enrolled in school but they need you! Please extend your generous support to the children of Dir.

Dear Supporters of DIL

When we asked you to help us complete DIL Guff School, you delivered! You helped raise $6,602 for Guff school. The newly constructed DIL Guff School Campus was opened for students on 17th December 2012. Today children from Guff village along with children from five surrounding villages are attending the school you helped us build.  A Parent Teachers Association (PTA) has also been formed and is already functional.  

Students are more confident and enjoy coming to their school. There is no electricity yet in the village but the electric
work and appliances have been installed.  Seeing the enthusiasm of the students and teachers of Guff and its surrounding villages, a DIL supporter has come forward to help install solar panels in 2013. This will allow the Guff school to start using its computer lab within this year.

On behalf of Guff School community, students, and teachers, DIL would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who have contributed so generously towards the successful construction and completion of this school.
