March 29, 2007

Suroor blogged today about a very worthy charity organization: I-am-paid-to-learn: Join the cause « Achelois

I will repost here as well:

I received the following email and have decided to help in whatever way I can and also as a “buddy”, Inshallah. I would really appreciate if others join hands to help in this cause. 


Dear All

Zindagi Trust is a charitable organization, operating 50 plus schools in the urban areas of Karachi, Lahore and Rawalpindi for the underprivileged working children of
Pakistan. Its main aim is to eliminate the menace of child labor from our society. These schools are run under a revolutionary program titled, I-am-paid-to-learn, which is geared towards eradicating illiteracy and child labor. Children who forgo schooling to earn money doing menial tasks in urban areas are given the incentive of a fixed stipend of Rs. 20 per day, The Trust is now launching “Sponsor-a-student’s-education” campaign named “Be My Buddy” where the donor would be able to sponsor the study expenses of one student by a monetary contribution of Rs.1500 per month. He/She will be assigned a student where he/she would be able to have access to his his/ her profile and progress report through Zindagi Trust’s website. 

As a charity, Zindagi mainly relies on funding from various sources, both in
Pakistan and aboard. Zindagi sincerely appeals to you to lend a helping hand to some of these deserving children acquiring education under Zindagi’s patronage.

There are even youtube videos out there for this organization.
