Girl's Education In Poor Regions
Being a physician, I know that most diseases can be prevented by simple awareness. Knowledge empowers individuals. It not only changes their own life, but also makes the world a better place for everyone. This multiplies many times over by educating the girls who then effect a generational change.
No part is remote enough in this global village of ours to make us immune to festering diseases, either microbial or social. Education is our main defense. In under-developed countries, girls education is usually ignored by their families and governments. In collaboration with my alumni association ,RMCOF, I have made educating girls in remote and poor regions , my mission.
We adopted a village in a far flung region of Pakistan devastated after the great 2010 flood and constructed 322 housing units. We also built two schools exclusively for the girls in this area.
The revenue generated by the sale of the artwork goes towards the school.
The School needs to be upgraded to matriculation level now that, happily, the first batch of students have reached 8th.grade.This means the need for new physical classrooms and related infrastructure and teaching/faculty additions. Please consider donating directly to:

Annual Eid/Thanksgiving Feasts
Each year,We arrange for the school to host an annual eid dinner for the students and their extended families.The day celebrates the Abrahamic tradition of sacrifice.Locally sourced animals ,food and labour are used to prepare a feast for the village.In an extremely poor region, this dinner has become a much anticipated occasion and tradition for the village and the school.

New Uniforms As School Reopens
All the new students were provided with uniforms and books as the school resumed in class learning. This area has no general internet connectivity nor do the students have access to computers at home making distant learning impossible. The girls were delighted to be back at school.
