Paul* founded a Christian school in rural Pakistan and needs to add high school grades
Project: To add a 9th grade to the school for Christians and Muslims in rural Pakistan, so that students can finish high school and further their education.
In 2002, Paul* began a school for girls that went through the 8th grade. To continue on to higher education in Pakistan, a student must complete the 10th grade. Paul offers education to all children in his rural village, believing this will help bring peace among Christians and Muslims in a country that is 97% Muslim. Parents of poor Muslim girls are delighted to have their daughters receive an education and praise Christians for offering it.
Paul shared, “Every poor girl wishes for a chance of education, for the opportunity to learn and go to school; the girls are less privileged in our target area because they don’t have access to attend public high school at the distance. It is not affordable for their parents because of dire poverty.
