Projects & organisations
I’m proud to be able to support these projects and organisations through my work.
Meri Pehchan – my identity school describes the spirit of these free schools in Faisalabad city in northern Pakistan. The name was chosen by the students who are living in the low-income areas and whose families can’t afford the local schools. Most street children have no basic access to education and most remain illiterate during the course of their life. The purpose of this project is to provide a basic education for street children through modern technology and empowering educational methods. The schools are open to both boys and girls to help increase the equality between men and women and to decrease the educational gap.
The Meri Pehchan schools are designed to offer a broader world view, basic knowledge of the world and surroundings, basic reading, writing and computer skills and understanding of the modern technology to empower the children to build successful and meaningful lives.
