Partnerships Transform Families

Sharif* grew up in a very conservative village. He was bullied at school by students and teachers. His family had heard of our partner’s Scholarship Program and their partnership with the local center to provide housing and support for students just like him.

In September 2023, after completing his high school studies through the Scholarship Program, he was accepted into a nursing program at a local college. He is the first person in his family to attend school – and he is determined that he will not be the last!

Through local partnerships like the Scholarship Program and the student hostel, young people and their families are being transformed.

The Scholarship Program was created by our partner organisation to provide educational assistance to the marginalised students in northern Pakistan who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend school. Education is not free in Pakistan, and for many marginalised groups in the region, education is very difficult to access.

The scholarship covers basic needs for the school year including tuition, uniforms, books and school supplies. These scholarships equip students with the foundational training and confidence needed to break the cycle of poverty for their families and for future generations.

Our partners believe that through working with communities to provide education, training and development, marginalised communities in Pakistan can be equipped to move from poverty to prosperity.
