BENEFITING: THAAKAT FOUNDATION
THAAKAT FOUNDATION wrote -
The village of Kachra Kundi in Karachi, Pakistan is a garbage dump site where litter and sewage from the city is dumped daily. More than 300 families must endure living in this bubble of pollutants, waste and danger. A majority earn their livelihood from collecting plastics and hazardous waste and reselling it to recycling centers and industrial warehouses. Not only are the residents of Kachra Kundi deprived of civic facilities like electricity and clean water, but there had previously been zero access to education. 8 years ago our partner, Idara Al Khair brought in 16 teachers and lots of hope to help them live their dreams. Our goal for Kachra Kundi is to help provide an improved educational facility for 250 students (40% girls), which will be minutes away from their village but in an area free from disease and garbage.
We want to help give the children better lives than they have right now, we want them to live their dreams and go on to do great things. We want them to be safe, we want them to be happy, we want to do whatever we can to make it easier on them. Please! Read about our projects, and donate whatever you can even if it's just a dollar or few. Everything counts, everyone's help matters. Everyone deserves the basics in life - help thaakat help them.
"DISPENSARY IN SCHOOL PREMISES: - Due to extreme pollution, unhygienic environment and nature of occupation of the people living in the garbage area they easily become victims of the diseases like infection, eczema, wounds, cut, Gastro, hepatitis and Asthema etc. we therefore, provide free medical treatment to all diseased persons of the locality including students of the school." http://www.idaraalkhair.org/
