Last year, we came across villagers who were living in one of the largest garbage dumps outside of the large metro city of Karachi, Pakistan. In the center of the hills of smoky waste was crouched a primary school where children came to learn with a passion to escape this terrible future they felt they were doomed to.
Our goal became to help our partner organization, Idara Al Khair, to build a large school site, away from the fumes and pollution. We've got 9 classrooms nearly walk in ready at the entrance of the village where it is cleaner, clearer and in access to 10,000 villagers in surrounding areas.
While we have 9 classrooms built, we have no supplies, desks or teachers. There are lines of students waiting, hundreds of parents waiting curiously to see what will become of this.
9 groups of people are needed to come together to donate $1,200 to get each of these classrooms started. We need a lot more people to help us ensure the success of these children for decades to come- forever perhaps.
The school will also be in need of water connection from near by villages: the cost of this will be $5600.
These children have dreams, will you help make them make it a reality?
