Hope is an imperative feeling to have, but more importantly to GIVE. Giving someone hope is like giving them a reason to live and not to give up. The greatest gift we can give someone is our own joy. Taking this perception along, HOPE tries to reach out to all those who no one reaches out to and aims to give them hope for a better life and a better future.
In this regard, HOPE Pakistan in collaboration with Japanese government built up a Formal School in Korangi, Karachi, which was inaugurated in 2006, targeting the underprivileged children of the community. Since then HOPE has been providing quality education to hundreds of poor children, making them capable enough to compete the world, lead a better life and be beneficial for the society. Currently, more than 750 students are enrolled in the school.
HOPE considered upgrading and expanding the school to cater more underprivileged children so as to spread free education to as much children as it can. For that reason, Consulate General of Japan once again demonstrated its support and love for the Pakistani people and approved the project. Hence, a grant contract for the up-gradation was signed today by the Acting Consul General of Japan Mr. Masamichi Abe and the chairperson of HOPE Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla. This up-gradation includes new rooms, improved vocational center and availability of conveyance for the staff and students. Moreover, students will be able to go to field trips as well as visit other schools.
The consul general Mr. Masamichi Abe not just signed the contract but also took a round of the school along with Mr. Yuki Ochiai (Vice Consul for Political & Economic Affairs) and interacted with the students. The Japanese delegation expressed immense gratification with the work done by HOPE so far and assured their support in the future as well.
