Waqas's story

Waqas is a 28-year-old man. He started running a school for the progress of poor people living in the community. Being a young and enthusiastic man he wants to give his school a fresh start. He has both long-term and short-term goals for the school. He thinks that the individuality of every student should be recognized as each student has unique qualities. He wants to create responsible and self-disciplined students.

For catering to more students he wants to construct more rooms in the school and purchase classroom furniture. However, there is a lack of funds. He has requested an amount of PKR 200,000 to carry out construction of additional classrooms in the school and to buy classroom furniture.
