Shahida's story

Shahida is a 59 year old woman who had the goal of doing something productive for her community. Therefore, she established a school for the children living in her community. This helped them to get access to quality education by charging only a minimal tuition fee. The money collected from fees barely covers the operating expenses of the school. More parents are now interested in getting their children enrolled in her school. However, funds are required for purchasing furniture and getting new classrooms constructed. Therefore, she has requested an amount of 150,000 PKR for classroom construction and also to whitewash the school.
