Here on this piece of land in the slums of Islamabad, Pakistan…..
Color My World is going to build a school!
The kids in the slums used to attend school in a building that was charging them high rent, they have been kicked out of the building and they currently don’t have a place to go to school but we have secured a piece of land that eventually could become a school.
They are currently meeting in a tent.
“Education is a fundamental human right and essential for the exercise of all other human rights. It promotes individual freedom and empowerment and yields important development benefits. Yet millions of children and adults remain deprived of educational opportunities, many as a result of poverty. (UN Education, Scientific and Cultural organization).
The cost of the new school for 1200 feet would cost approximately $5000.00 and it costs roughly $600.00 a month or $7200.00 a year to fund the school and keep it running!
Our Color My World Partner on the ground Maqbool Masih will be heading up the development and program with his wife Asma Naz.
Will you help us raise the money and make this a reality?
