A Good Cause

Sidra and her students

My friend Sidra Omer and her family run a school for poor children in Pakistan called Bostaan ‘ilm. 

Now, some of you may know that I work in South Korea teaching English. Korea is a rich country with no Taliban to worry about. It’s not a brave thing that I am doing- teaching here.

Sirda, on the other hand, is the bravest person I know. I am honoured to be her friend and honoured to tell you about her school. It’s a wonderful opportunity for poor children in Pakistan to get an education.

Remember, in Pakistan there are places where women are harassed for getting an education. And yet, Sidra’s school teaches girls! It’s a wonderful cause, and you can donate here if you want to help. I urge you all to consider helping Sidra to make Pakistan a better place!
