Spreading joy among the people of Kashmir - DAY 3

Kashmir is a rural area where health and educational facilities are minimal or non-existent. It is a northern area of Pakistan located in the rocky mountain terrain. In these areas, establishing a school has met up with many hurdles. Hence HOPE- an educational NGO in Pakistan, with its determination to educate the underprivileged, has set up schools in Kashmir where the children receive education.

With the increasing reputation of the HOPE schools, more people are being encouraged to send their children to HOPE’s home school instead of making them victims of child labor.
The HOPE Team led by Dr Mubina Agboatwalla child specialist in Karachi, began their journey in the mountainous regions of Kashmir for monitoring the HOPE schools in AJK and KPK.

On the Third day of their visit, HOPE’s representatives went to three of the Goths: Dakhan Karbani educating 55 students, Parhor educating 66 children and lastly Dakhan Karbani educating 45 students.

HOPE team was warmly welcomed by students of HOPE schools where pupils performed various activities, role plays and skits. HOPE- a charitable NGO in Pakistan distributed cardigans, suits, toffees, snacks including: samosas, pakoras, juices and pastries.  

With the passion to serve humanity, HOPE reaches out to all those who no one reaches out to and has established several schools on different mountains of Kashmir. These schools are giving free and quality education to the poor children who cannot even afford to have a sweater or a single pair of socks to prevent themselves from cold even in extreme weather.

HOPE serves humanity in ways which are challenging boundaries of helping the poor in the health and education sector. HOPE with its vast assistance spreads joy amongst the people of Kashmir. HOPE’s representatives returned with heartfelt memories of the innocent faces of Kashmir, which they can hold onto for eternity.

HOPE – a charity in Pakistan embarked on journey of spreading education in Pakistan which began with one school has now a network of schools in all over Pakistan, where thousands of underprivileged are getting an opportunity to get quality edification through Formal or Informal schools. 

Recently eight students of HOPE Zia colony school visited Toyota Showroom for the the Toyota dream car art contest which is a global contest organized annually by Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), Japan with about 80 countries participating in the competition. Japan and Indus Motor Company (IMC) has been organizing it  in  Pakistan  for  the  past  5 years  as  part  of  the global Toyota initiative. This global contest is intended to create opportunities for children, offering them a platform to develop their interest in cars and expressing their creativity and imagination by drawing the “car of their dreams”.

At the end of the competition, students were rewarded with certificates and goody bags. Representatives of HOPE along with one teacher accompanied the students and guided them where needed.

HOPE- an educational NGO in Pakistan believes that Art is not meant to be looked at only for what it is. It is meant to stimulate thought because it allows viewers to draw their own emotions and pull from their personal experiences when viewed. It is very powerful in this way and it naturally develops critical and innovative thinking skills. Art also teaches many important qualities such as listening, observing and responding to multiple perspectives.

Students of HOPE were elated and thankful for such a wonder experience. Face painting and other activities proved to be a cherry on the cake for these underserved children.

Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child special in Karachi believes that art is a way of adding color and joy to a dreary life and hence facilitates any such activity which aims to explore children’s hidden talents.
