Supporting Hands UK Activities During 2018
The Trustees of Supporting Hands UK express their sincere thanks to all the donors for their support in this great cause. Without your Support it would not have been possible to achieve these results. Your ongoing support is helping hundreds of students to change their life forever by educating themselves.
None of the volunteers or Trustees are paid for their services and efforts. Supporting Hands UK Trustees or volunteers did not derive any benefits from Supporting Hands UK activities.
Education remains main focus of our activities. By the end of 2018, Supporting Hands UK were providing financial support to 100+ students for their education expenses. All these students were either from the families of a Shaheed or from under privilege backgrounds. All the students progressed to the next year of education during 2018 from which three of the students scored top marks in the board exams of Federal Board of Pakistan. The breakdown of students are as follows:
- 53 – Primary School
- 39 – Secondary School
- 10 – University / College
Senior students are studying for Chartered Accountancy, Degrees in zoology, sociology and other science groups. Geographically, these students are in Karachi and Northern Pakistan. Our target is to reach 150 students by the end 2019.
