Adopt-A-School in NWFP, Pakistan

Empower Kalu Shah School with a Matching Grant from The Rotary Foundation!

Pictured below are the children attending Kalu Shah School, in Takhbai, the school we are working on adopting. The students at the top, with their smart uniforms and inspired faces, are in the school we adopted after the earthquake in Muzzaffarabad, Kashmir, Pakistan. This is the look of children seeing computers in their school for the first time. With the improvements from our next Matching Grant, we will see this look on the faces of students at Kalu Shah. This is the look of hunger for knowledge and hope for the future!
