Support Education for a Brighter Future
Assalaamu Alaykum WaRahmatullahi WaBarakatahu,
Basic education helps one live a full and rewarding life. This is one of the major areas in which Helping Hand for Relief and Development emphasizes its foremost interest with hopes of increasing the literacy rate in areas under its care. The education condition in Pakistan is the lowest in the region with a mere 57%. Without a proper education infrastructure there is little hope for talented and motivated individuals for a higher education. The Higher Education Sponsorship Program (HESP) is a joint venture of HHRD and Al Falah Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships to talented but needy individuals throughout the 24 districts in Pakistan.
Scholarships will focus on a variety of professions including medical, engineering, management and IT, and Accounting to name a few. HHRD will work towards increasing the number of underprivileged from the 1063 students that AFSS is currently supporting. With a donation of $90 a month these individuals will be able to secure a brighter future for not only themselves, but their families and ultimately the country.
For further information on HHRD’s partnership with AFSS on this project and how you can help please visit www.hhrd.org
