Financial assistance is provided to many families to enable their children to go to school and supplement the family income. The number of our scholarship recipients has increased dramatically since our humble beginning. There is a tremendous demand for more assistance due to very high unemployment, stagnant wages and over 20% annual inflation. Where we are able to help, we see a big improvement. The children awarded scholarships have increased their efforts at school and are receiving good results. About one third rank in the first 3 positions in their class and all show improvement. The students on scholarship are encouraged by our counselors when they come with their mother to receive their monthly scholarship. Updates on family situations are received and encouragement is given, along with information on hygiene and healthcare. When families gather at an annual get together, the reduction in stress is apparent in many faces. SOME OF OUR SCHOLARSHIP STUDENTS We are thrilled that funding has enabled us to sponsor children of poor families as scholarship students while helping the families live a better life. We were very moved by the need, and how The Pakistan Fund of Canada was able to help. Families in Pakistan are very appreciative of the help they are receiving from Canadians. A monthly scholarship adds significantly to the family income where poor families typically earn less than 4000 rupees and have difficulty meeting their basic needs. Each month when mothers come to collect the scholarship money they receive information about health and basic hygiene.
