New Elementary School – Bihar, India:

Happy to report construction of new elementary school for Kishanjang, Bihar was initiated with foundation stone laid on December 01.  Kishanjang is a poor, backward community in Bihar where education opportunities are a challenge for the poor and destitute.  Here are few photos from the event.

New Elementary School – Sar Pol, Afghanistan:

Happy to report the Sar Pol, Afghanistan elementary school construction is in full swing. About 400 internally displaced refugee children who live in shockingly abject poverty and very hostile environment will go to school here soon, insha’Allah.  Here are few photos of construction in progress:

Pakistan Blanket Project – An Update:

The use of traditional blankets in flood areas of Pakistan is not practical, rather the communities use what is locally known as razaees (godro in Gujrati).  These are warmer, practical, washable and longer lasting.  We were able to source these locally from Multan, Pakistan, eliminating transportation cost and time.  The landed cost at locations is now US$9.50 instead of US$15 as previously appealed for traditional 5kg Chinese blankets.  So instead of 2,000 blankets, we are now targeting 3,200 razaees; all excess funds received for this initiative will go towards purchasing more razaees as the need is overwhelming.
