Kalusha Girls High School
is to be built 50 miles from Peshawar,
20 miles from Charsadda and 10 miles
from the tribal area of northern Pakistan.
The school will be built and run by the
Dosti Foundation which already
has 18 schools in the area. This
organization is headed up in Pakistan by Rotarian (past-president of Peshawar Unitown) Zamarud Shah. Zamarud Shah is a Pakistani-American Philanthropist who has moved back to his old country in retirement to help Dosti.
There are no other girl’s high schools in the area for 9 miles on either side so it is important to have one located in this area. This school will facilitate the education for a minimum of 300 girls. It will cost $72,000 to build and will also include a primary school for 250 children since the local school nearby is very overcrowded. The building will have the first sanitation facilities in the area and will include this aspect in its education curriculum.
Rotary donations checks are tax deductable and can be made out to Ipswich Rotary Club (pls note Pakistan girls school on check) and send to the club at PO Box 543, Ipswich, MA 01938
