At present, Pakistan stands second across the globe and has the highest number of out-of-school children with an estimated 22.8 million children not attending school. That is, for these children, the right to education remains a distant dream.
Shahid Afridi Foundation joined hands with Green Crescent Trust to raise funds and much needed awareness for out of school children across Pakistan. The fundraiser ‘lgniting a Brighter Future’ was organized in Lahore and Karachi on January 13th and March 18, 2022, respectively, to raise funds to bring 10,000 out-of-school children back to school after dropout rates increased due to COVID 19. We thank our sponsors for their assistance in raising funds for the cause and to ensure brighter future for the children in Pakistan. With the support of our generous donors, we will be able to enroll deserving students through the network of 15 schools across the country.
