December 2011 Girls Ed Pakistan Project Update

Dear Girls Ed Pakistan project supporters,

Thank you for your assistance in helping our 30 girls in Pakistan continue their secondary education.  Through your generosity we have almost reached our funding goal for this project--just a few more donations and we will be over the top!

Our local partner in Pakistan, Bedari, shared in their fall newsletter just how instrumental your funding assistance has been in the education, and thereby the future for these 30 girls and their communities.  Without financial support for tuition, books, and uniforms, as well as necessary transport from the remote villages of Laphi and Sarkalan to the nearest secondary school 10 kilometers away, most of these girls would not be able to continue their studies.  Safeer Ullah Khan of Bedari reminds us of the unfortunate reality for girls growing up without an education in Pakistan -- "These girls neither have a great childhood nor can they have high hopes about their future... They are extremely vulnerable to child labor and teenage marriages." 

However, because of the generous support of people like you, the reality for these girls, as well as for Laphi and Sarkalan, is much more promising.  As one local community member proudly points out-- "[T]hese two small villages will soon have 30 educated families."

Thank you again for your invaluable assistance and best wishes in the New Year!
