Yaqoob's story

Yaqoob, 50 years old, opened a school in his community. His community is underdeveloped and has no educational opportunities in the form of schools. Currently, there are 312 students in the school of which 64% are women.

He wants to change these current circumstances and construct a school building that will offer education at higher secondary level to the youth in his community, as no society is able to progress if education is not an option.

Yaqoob has requested an amount of PKR. 200,000 to construct additional classrooms .

He hopes that the money given to him will not only make it possible to provide education for children in his community but also to change people’s attitude toward education; that it is a right for everyone and not just a privilege for the financially secure.
