Supporting Hands UK activities during the year 2021
The Trustees of Supporting Hands UK express their sincere thanks to all Donors for their support in this great cause. Without your Support it would not have been possible to achieve the results. Your ongoing support is helping 250+ students to change their lives 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 the focus of our activities. By the end of 2021, SHUK have provided financial support to 250+ students on regular basis in form of school/college fees and other school expenses. All the students are either from the family of a Shaheed or from under privileged backgrounds. All the students progressed to the next year of education during 2021. During 2021, we move about 30 children to better school and college. This was a risk with took to improve the quality of education. This move was quite successful. With the exception of 2 students, who could not cope with the change, the remaining students have completed the year and moved to higher classes.
Student distribution– 52% in primary school, 33% in Senior School and 17% in college/university. 46% of the students are girls and 54% are boys
In addition to 250+ students, Supporting Hands Uk is helping friends of Rahnuma Public School ( a project of Path Education} to raise funds for the school through their contacts and fund school expenses in Karachi. The School is located in an under privilege area in Karachi. The school was established in 2006 and currently has 470+ students
Thanks for your ongoing support for the above. It would not have been possible to achieve above without your support.
