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.
