A call to action for everyone who wants to make a difference
It's that time of the year again! The holiday spirit is just behind the corner and the air smells of orange and cinnamon. It's again the time for drafting resolutions, sending gratitude messages and giving back to those in need.
Joins us this #GivingTuesday 2016* in our mission to build a Girl's College in Wazirabad, Pakistan. The college will be next to the Halimah School of Excellence where girls from orphaned and needy backgrounds receive their secondary education.
Together with the Halimah Trust and Muslim Hands, we aim to raise 370 000 EUR for the construction of the college which will provide education for 400 Pakistani girls annually. With your support, we hope to build a college in an area where girls often do not have the opportunity to go to school, and instead, end up in child labour or child marriages.
OneWorld Foundation and Dr. Ruja Ignatova have already made their first donation of 50 000 EUR to the cause. But we need more in order to kick off the construction of the college on the 1st of January 2017. The first stage of the project includes the architectural and structural design for which we will need at least 50% of the funds.
We believe that we are nurturing the future leaders of our society. Will you help us fulfill the dreams and ambitions of these very special girls?
Please join us on the 29th of November 2016 and the whole December and help us change the lives of these girls. If each one of you donates on this special day, we won't need another day to raise funds.
#GivingTuesday is a day for giving, dedicated to raising funds and support to charitable causes around the world.
