Water is one of the fundamental elements responsible for life on earth; yet it remains out of reach of billions around the globe. It affects every continent and more than 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. While considering the province of Sindh in Pakistan, besides being one of the disadvantaged communities when it comes to literacy and morbidity rate in addition, it happens to be one of the places where water is chronically short besides being dirty and contaminated. Women of these remote areas travel 5-6 km far from their village to fetch water. However, water wells are set-up 250 ft deep from which both animals and humans drink water.

HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan has been helping the needy to obtain clean drinking water under the leadership of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- child specialist in Karachi. Recently HOPE joined hands with Al Baraka Ltd who donated funds for the installation of 10 handpumps.

Al Baraka Limited came into being as a result of the first merger in the Islamic Banking sector of Pakistan. They have been more than generous in helping HOPE- a health NGO in Pakistan cater to the poor and needy population in far off barren lands.

Handpumps in the following regions have already been completed:

    1)     Tando Adam khan
    2)     Sanghar
    3)     Nawabshah
    4)     Muzaffargarh

While some of the handpumps in the following regions are still under process and in the pipeline:

    5)     Badin
    6)     Swat 
    7)     Muzaffarabad

By the end of this month HOPE expects to have at least 7 out of 10 handpumps constructed and functioning.

Handpumps in Sahiwal, Sadqabad and KPT are yet to be finalized. HOPE gains greater dedication and motivation as we witness the change each hand pump has brings in the lives of so many people in these rural areas.

HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan has so far had an incredible journey. It has grown from a band of street volunteers to a huge national network of schools, hospitals and vocational centers and during the journey, HOPE- a health NGO in Pakistan has continuously been getting support from all sectors and all ages of people. One of its supporters who recently joint hands with HOPE to organize its first distribution was AGILITY.

Agility is a publicly traded global logistics company headquartered in Kuwait, providing freight forwarding, transportation, and warehousing and supply chain management services to businesses, governments, international institutions and relief agencies worldwide.

Agility’s TRISTAR recently arranged a lunch distribution activity in HOPE’s Zia Colony School which is one of HOPE’s most successfully runned institute.

The students of HOPE School Zia Colony studying in the morning shift were thrilled to welcome Agility’s representatives. They also held quizzes and competitions resulting in the distribution of goody bags which brought a rise in the emotions and excitement of the students.

Agility, the organization was kind enough to generously donate money for School expenses and instructed that the funds be utilized in whatever way possible.

All in all the whole experience was delightful and an action packed one. The teachers of HOPE school- Zia colony, paid close attention to the activities and ensured that all students are benefitting and participating in the activity. At the end, a group photo was taken to captivate the moment so that Agility lasts forever in HOPE’s supporters.

Uniforms, stationary and school bags are provided free of cost.

HOPE’s Zia Colony formal school is one of HOPE’s most successful Schools and like any other curriculum, students of HOPE gave their high school examination and passed with flying colors.

With result time round the corner, all students are going through a stressful time trying to estimate what their result might be and whether or not their hard work paid off. But all is well that ends well. With a total of 3 A’s, 9 B’s and 4 C’s HOPE’s students surpassed the teacher’s expectations and proved to all how well they have been taught.
HOPE Zia Colony’s teachers namely Ms. Aisha and Ms. Ghazi worked extremely hard day in and day out in order to transfer utmost knowledge to the students.

Under the supervision of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi, HOPE Zia Colony has now advanced into greater possibilities and methodologies of teaching students more effectively so that in future they may earn a living for themselves with the high quality education they received.
