July 2012 Girls Ed Pakistan Project Update

Dear Girls Ed Pakistan Project Supporters,

I am happy to report that the girls continue to prosper in their studies.  In a recent update from our local contact in Pakistan, Bedari, we learned that all of the girls passed their annual exams at the end of this past school semester!  Each of them has now advanced to the next grade, two of them having graduated. 

Bedari continues to make sure that the girls receive a well-rounded education through regular monthly meetings in which they are guided through discussions on such topics as health and hygiene, communication skills, and gender issues.  Each of these are subjects that for cultural reasons would typically not be part of a formal education, but are all so very vital to the true success of these girls as they strive for a better future.  Bedari reports that the girls have come to look forward to these meetings and are active participants. 

We look forward to sharing with you in our next project update profiles of some of the girls as they have progressed through the program.  Your continued support is truly changing lives!

With gratitude,

Loni Riley
