The majestic Karakoram mountains and the picturesque Ishkoman Valley, which separates the Karakoram Range from the Hindu Kush boast some of the most spectacular mountains on earth but despite their stunning beauty, both regions present harsh living conditions, with much of the population subsisting in remote villages, hours away from the nearest towns. Askole and Hushe in Baltistan and Asumbar in Ishkoman are among such villages, where the village schools strive to provide a great education to the local children. We are thrilled to share some remarkable achievements from our projects in remote villages of Pakistan. 

Here is a glimpse of the positive impact we have made together:

  • Askole School Wins School of the Year Award
    Congratulations to Ali, the headmaster of Askole School, for receiving this prestigious recognition. Your support has played a crucial role in their success.
  • Continued Support for Teachers
    Thanks to your contributions, we can pay the salaries of two part-time female teachers at both Askole and Asumber Schools, a teacher, and a caretaker at Shadri School, as well as a full-time female teacher at Thingee School, all of whom are dedicated to providing quality education to the students.
  • Providing Askole School with Classroom Insulation and New Televisions
    Your donations have enabled us to enhance the learning environment by insulating the classrooms, especially during temperatures that can fall to -30 degrees Celsius. Additionally, we have provided two flat-screen TVs, opening up new possibilities for education.
  • Supporting Teacher Training in Hushe Village
    Your generosity facilitated teacher training, transforming the lives of numerous children in the Hushe Valley.
    Aiding Flood-Affected Households
    Your help provided crucial assistance to 50 households severely impacted by floods, offering hope in challenging times.
  • Supporting Shadri School
    We stand by the Shadri community with vital support for teachers and essential school equipment, ensuring a brighter future for the students.
  • Swift Covid food relief in Askole and Hushe Village
    With your generous support, £1,500 enabled volunteers, led by Ayub Khan, to deliver vital food supplies to 100 vulnerable families who were facing harsh winter conditions.
  • Supporting Thingee Community School
    The Juniper Trust is backing the launch of the new Thingee Community School in Ishkoman's remote Ghizer District, covering teacher salaries for the first year and furnishing uniforms and equipment for 36 students, all aimed at fostering enduring positive change.

Celebrate our achievements and stand with us in shaping
brighter futures across all our projects in Pakistan. From Askole School's prestigious award to continued teacher support, classroom enhancements, flood relief efforts, and more, your generosity has transformed lives. Let's keep the momentum going as we champion education, empowerment, and lasting positive change together.
