-- Kashmir is known for its simplicity and refined beauties but unfortunately the people living there are suffering from insufficiency of daily life necessities. Kashmir is a land of dreams but unfortunately, it has no access to health and educational facilities; underdeveloped areas and a great illiteracy rate. Being a mountainous area the children face difficulties and hardships in reaching their schools. On the other hand, if we talk about girl's education families do not allow them to go out for receiving education. For this purpose, HOPE - An Educational NGO (http://hope-ngo.com/)
initiated a way and established a network of home schools across Kashmir. These schools are more beneficial and cost effective for poor and needy people. As the weather is so unpredictable rain and snow falls are a routine.
HOPE conducts visits every year in Kashmir along with some employees of HOPE to check the proper functioning of schools. On day one, HOPE team visited schools located in Thotha, Garhi dupatta. An annual function was organized by HOPE schools students where they performed tableau's on Kashmiri culture and national songs.HOPE-An NGO in Pakistan (http://hope-ngo.com/),
distributed clothes, gift packs including school bags, pencil pouches, stationary items and sweaters among the children. Shawls were given to teachers. Top achievers in schools were given 'Pens' as a token of appreciation for their hard work as well as motivating other students. The chairperson Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla delivered a motivational speech for teachers and students, who presented her a gift in her honor. Food items such as biryani, juices and sweets were also distributed among all children. All children were very happy with the visit of HOPE team and these activities brought happiness on their faces. It was a day filled with joy and pleasure.
Under the leadership of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- A Child Specialist in Karachi (http://www.drmubinaagboatwalla.com/),
HOPE aims to provide quality education to the children of underprivileged communities and will continue to work towards their betterment.
