Miss Shahida Merchant donates High Quality Frames and Lenses

It’s not how much we give, it’s how much love we put into giving.
We at HOPE are thankful to all of those who have taken part in our cause in every possible way. HOPE an NGO in Pakistan, is striving to achieve the best possible ways to reduce poverty and education disparity by providing free of cost quality education and health care facilities.
HOPE, a health NGO in Pakistan welcomes everyone who want to donate with what little they have. Recently, HOPE, a health NGO in Pakistan, received in kind donation from our generous contributor Shahida Merchant from the United States of America. She donated high quality glass frames and lenses. These glasses were given to patients who were unable to afford eyesight treatment. All the glasses were calibrated by a qualified optician. Patients  who had eye sight issues were given these glasses and that also free of cost.
It is indeed a source of sheer happiness when we look at the faces of those who receive these tiny gifts and smile at us, showing their gratitude for being there for them.

Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla, child specialist in Karachi is grateful for the philanthropists around the world who had helped HOPE in its cause and continues to provide a helping hand towards those who need it the most.

HOPE Celebrates Annual Day of HOPE School in Thatta

HOPE, an educational NGO in Pakistan, has played a vital role in providing free of cost quality education in the country for around fifteen years. It carries out a variety of activities to encourage its students who perform well in their respective classes.
HOPE recently held its annual result ceremony of Thatta School in the month of May. HOPE, an NGO in Pakistan arranges this event every year to encourage its students to achieve more and to appreciate those who work hard.
 The ceremony started with the recitation of the Holy Qur’an followed by Naat which was recited by a female student. Students were excited to be part of this event as children from every class had a chance to show their talent. 
“This is a great way of enhancing the confidence level of the children” said Attiya, a grade 7th teacher. 
The event was packed with other numerous performances and skits by the school children, who had put in great effort in making the event entertaining. There was a special dance performance by the children of HOPE school Thatta and the audience thoroughly enjoyed watching it. The students, who stood first, second and third in their respective classes were presented with gifts to further encourage their hard work. All the guests highly appreciated the program. The Chairperson of HOPE, Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla Child Specialist Karachi congratulated the position holders and their parents and appreciated the efforts of the teachers.
The event was arranged by the HOPE staff at the school itself, and was attended by many guests who hailed all the way from Karachi.  Our distinguished guests distributed trophies among the position holders. School bags & Stationery items were also given to the kids at the end of the event sponsored by HOPE.
There is no doubt that education is a neglected field in Pakistan. Many civil society organizations are working towards educating the undeserved living in both rural and urban areas.  HOPE also has a fair share in providing free of cost education to the underprivileged children so that they can gain knowledge and become an educated and citizen of Pakistan

HOPE School Zia Colony Celebrated Annual Day

Education is a basic human right. Like all human rights, it is universal and inalienable—everyone, regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity or economic status, is entitled to it. Unfortunately, the situation of education in Pakistan is in shambles. The official statistics released by Federal Education Ministry reveals that the overall literacy rate in Pakistan is 46%, while only 26% of our female population is literate. The situation is especially alarming in rural areas where girl child is prohibited to go to school due to cultural and social obstacles. 
HOPE, an educational NGO in Pakistan has been providing free of cost quality education to around 10,000 impoverished students across Pakistan for the past twelve years. Many philanthropists, volunteers and staff members have helped HOPE to achieve this milestone.
Recently, HOPE School in Zia Colony, Korangi arranged a colourful and entertaining Annual Day to celebrate one more successful year. The evening saw students, excelling in academic and co curricular activities, being rewarded for their hard work and brilliant performances in the last year.
The program continued with the theatrical presentation of a story about a quack who acts as a doctor and gives out wrong medications to the poor and needy of a undeserved

area called Thatta. Audience thoroughly enjoyed the event and lauded the efforts of teachers for putting up a fabulous show.  Tiny tots also took a very active part in this event. They conveyed to the audience the importance of helping the needy and how it gives pleasure and satisfaction to all concerned. The high point of the evening was the fashion show in which children wore dresses depicting various cultures across Pakistan.

Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla and other distinguished guests distributed gifts among the students and shared their thoughts about the event as well as the efforts put up by HOPE to help reduce educational disparity. HOPE will continue to serve the underprivileged despite all the problems it has to face. Dr. MubinaAgboatwalla is hopeful that organizations and philanthropists will continue to help HOPE it its endeavours to reduce health and educational disparity.
