THE STORY:

Ravendar Lal wrote -

We are creating this fund raiser campaign to make a school in Pakistan in a memory of 132 innocent school kids who lost their lives in Peshawar Pakistan in barbaric attack by Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). They always attack schools because they know education is our biggest weapon and their worst enemy. 

You don't need to feel helpless anymore as we have all been feeling after hearing about barbaric news. This is our opportunity to reply taliban and like-minded extremists groups by giving them a message that we will not let you win this war. #OurReplyToTaliban 

This school will be built in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa state (where this attack took place) on 16th December 2014. 

All the money in this fundraiser will be donated to The Cititzens Foundation (tcfusa.org) - very well-reputed non-profit organization that has already built and manages more than 1000 schools in Pakistan. 

Amount required for this fund raiser is quoted from: http://www.tcfusa.org/donate/ and it will be used to build primary school unit. To build a secondary school units along with it will require an additonal $60,000 USD.  Exact location of school will be chosen by TCF based on needs and demands of a town.
