The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am doing it myself
This goverment run school is in a remote village of Pakistan. There is very little funding and that has been barely keeping the school going for years.
This is my school (Year 1993). I had the privillage to further continue my studies and have university education but majority of the others did not make it this far. I live in the UK now and I would like to make a difference to the lives of poor students at this school.
I am going to be personally overseaing all this work and will provide details to anyone intrested to see the difference we make
Where is the school/ School on Google Map
What's the issue
School is in dire need of repairs to the building, walls, floors, general painting. The majority of the students are from a poor background and rely on the school for books. Some cannot even afford a uniform.
Here’s what we’re doing about it
I am going to visit the village for 3 weeks in december and this is what I would like to get done, hopefully with some of my own funds and as well as with the generosity of the people like yourselves.
- walls replastered and repainted
- floors repaired
- electricity work including fans/light bulbs
The above is estimated to cost around £6000.
Any monies left will be spent on the below - however these are ongoing costs:
- water filter so drinking water is available (estimate around £1000)
- school uniform for students who cannot afford (estimate around £1000)
If the full budget is not achieved then will carry out as much as work allowed by the funds.
