Iftar Party held at The Fahims School System - Senior Boys Branch

HOPE- a charitable NGO constantly struggling to lessen the ratio of poverty, illiteracy and illnesses in the Pakistan also indulges into serving the poor and needy by holding Iftar’s in the holy month of Ramadan.

Under the leadership of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla – child specialist in Karachi. HOPE has 4 formal schools and 200 informal schools in different districts all over Pakistan providing high quality and free of cost education for those who are otherwise impoverished for education and even the thought of having books and going to school is nothing but a mere imagination and a dream.

Two such informal schools in Bhittiabad have been adopted by Fahim School were made to open their fast with HOPE looking after all the arrangements. We witnessed the epitome of this philanthropy in the face of an NGO.

As in the past, Fahim’s Schooling System, has very magnanimously stepped forward with a welcome helping hand by donating books, stationery in the form of coloring books and coloring pencils and also with pouches containing candy and sweets for the children.

In this successful iftar party, students were delighted to receive iftar boxes, Eid clothes and some additional cash for Eid. The children were really eager to receive the Eid clothes as they belong to the families who can hardly afford new clothes for any occasion. 

These two home schools consisted of 50 students, 2 teachers, 1 supervisor and 2 representatives of HOPE.

HOPE- an educational NGO in Pakistan , has a strong and long lasting bond with Fahim’s Schooling System and as always appreciates the support and assistance provided by them.

Health education builds students' knowledge, skills, and positive attitudes about health. It motivates students to improve and maintain their health, prevent disease, and reduce risky behaviors. The middle years of childhood are extremely sensitive times for a number of health issues, especially when it comes to adopting health behavior that can have lifelong consequences. Moreover, children are key to educate society because children take that education to their home spreading among their family members and people surrounding them.

HOPE- a health NGO in Pakistan has been a forerunner in providing for health facilities for all ages and all casts. But educating children is just as important and HOPE welcomes any such organization who works to spread awareness about health and hygiene. One organization and a renowned Hospital named Aga Khan University Hospital was kind enough to send a team of twenty doctors to talk to children of HOPE school.

Zia Colony School which entails 610 students studying up to matriculation and is now supported by individual donors, welcomed this team of twenty doctors who spoke to the children about hygiene. These sessions were highly productive and informative and taught a great deal to the students.

At HOPE- an educational NGO in Pakistan, students from grade IV to X were strained upon adopting healthy habits which include hand washing, early to bed and early to rise routine, playing safe games, and improving eating habits. Activities were arranged which enforced students to choose healthy and safe habits for themselves and which make them realize the consequences of bad habits on their health.

Teaching the basics of proper personal hygiene is important for keeping kids healthy and clean. It’s especially important for younger children to practice good hygiene -- particularly hand washing -- because they spend so much of their time in close contact with each other in the classroom, sharing everything from desks and chairs to germs. And when your child reaches adolescence, hormonal changes will lead to increased production of oils in skin and hair and an increase in body odor. That’s when you will be glad you didn’t wait till then to instill good health and hygiene habits! 

Under the leadership of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi, HOPE has been educating thousands of children each year, and such sessions only add their knowledge and their usefulness is very prominent.

Discrimination means treating a person unfairly because of who they are or because they possess certain characteristics. In our Pakistani society where a male child is regarded as more valuable to the family, girls are often denied the right of life, denied the right to name and nationality.

Pakistan is the seventh worst country in terms of access to basic sanitation, as its 42 per cent of the population remains without access to basic sanitation. - As stated by Dawn newspaper.

Worldwide, 2.3 billion people are living without somewhere to go to the toilet. Without a toilet there is no way to prevent your faeces from contaminating your environment. Minute amounts can get on your hands, in your food and water supply, and spread diseases.

Unsafe drinking water is a major cause of several diseases. Poor sanitation and poor hygiene have been the root for several disease episodes. Infant mortality, diarrhoea and child malnutrition in low-income areas of Pakistan are greatly associated with inadequate access to safe water and basic sanitation.

Improving funding and allocation of resources is at the heart of solving the sanitation and waste water problems in Pakistan. HOPE-a Health NGO in Pakistan, has always been a forerunner in solving health and education related issues in Pakistan. Seeing the disastrous sanitary and hygiene situation HOPE stepped up and opened 3 toilets in different locations.

The first one which has been constructed on link road, Gulam Hasan road, benefits almost 40-50 houses in the vicinity, causing them great ease and solving their basic washroom problems.

The second toilet constructed by HOPE is at Kathor, which benefits almost 25-30 houses.  This place is situated in Khairpur, Sind, Pakistan.

HOPE’s third toilet is situated in Badin, Sindh and is now under construction.

Villagers claim these toilets have solved many problems. Alongside these there are also many handpumps installed by HOPE where villagers are provided with clean, pure water. These toilets are constructed on a 5x5 sq foot.

As citizens of Pakistan, it is our duty to help provide resources to underprivileged and downtrodden population of Pakistan. With many arising issues such as load shedding, lack of gas supply, no proper sanitation, we must do our level best by ebbing the problems which are under our control and donating whatever little we can. These well-constructed toilets are funded by HOPE itself to improve the living conditions of the underserved population.
