LITERACY, PEACE, & the END of POLIO in Pakistan

Fabulous Rotarians have contacted me and we are working on two Rotary International Global Grants to help schools in northern Pakistan.  After visiting these schools and watching them transform through smaller joint efforts, it is now time to help them address their ever growing waiting list of students eager to learn.  The grants will assist 5 growing schools near the Federally Administered Tribal Area and Swat in Khyber Pakhtunwa.  Included in these grants will be solar panels, computers, school buses, furniture, sanitation installation, school supplies, books & uniforms.

The big Global Grants do not include building and 2 of the schools have not been able to complete the buildings they started 2 years ago.  They are both functioning in half finished buildings with an ever growing number of students attending and a longer waiting list.

We are educating may girls who think the same as Malala, the girl who was shot on the school bus by the Taliban.  They are not public about it but behind every young person determined to get an education is an family and in fact, an entire clan.

Please don't leave these hungry minds out in the cold!  Help us to bring about and truely effective center of learning for these deserving children.

We just need enough to finish the structure so they can qualify for the wonderful things that will be funded by Rotarians in Ohio and Denmark. 

Lets step up and give them what they deserve with this small amount of financing they will need .

We are working on so many great projects in remote places where every person in the region will be positively impacted.  It is so exciting!  These growing schools are located on the fringe of areas of chaos where polio still raises its ugly head. With the introduction of each facility, sanitation and vaccines are introduced.  Shortly there is no polio, everyone in the village has toilets and neighboring villages are clamoring for the same…
