Aagay Barho #TaleemAamKaro!
We are a team of 3 students from SZABIST Karachi, who have taken the pledge to make quality education easily accessible for all. In an attempt to play our role as privileged citizens we initiate the fundraiser #TaleemAamKaro, a campaign that aims to grant 25 young students the right to quality education for a whole year!
Poverty, Hate Crime, Overpopulation and Underdevelopment - the solution to all these problems is through Education. However, 1 in 3 children in Pakistan do not attend school resulting in an alarming amount of 24 million out of school children in Pakistan.
We have been involved with The Citizens Foundation very closely and through volunteering and understanding the organization first-hand, we have placed our faith in its capacity to bring positive change in our society. TCF has been producing some brilliant minds for quite some time now. And as a result, we interact with many such students studying alongside us in our university. These students have persevered once given a platform and earned themselves a seat in prestigious universities across Pakistan.
This goes on to show the profuse amounts of talent overflowing in our less-privileged communities and TCF’s resolve in harnessing it. Which in turn contributes to alleviation of poverty, and bringing positive change around us just by making quality education easily accessible.
Through your help, we hope to raise enough money to help them continue receiving the quality education they deserve.
