Each project focuses on one of the Charter’s partner organizations, each part of a community of thousands of groups, governments, and individuals collectively working to bring the Charter for Compassion to life around the globe.

Project #3: Give Girls in Pakistan Access to Education
About this project: The Sindhi Foundation is a global advocacy, education and charity organization working to promote human rights for Sindhi people across the globe. One of their many education projects is a Sindhi School for young girls in Pakistan. Many of us see education as a fundamental human right, but this is not always the case in areas of the world such as the remote village where Naseem Lohar and two other teachers are responsible for teaching 100 young girls, ages 6 to 10, from neighboring regions in Pakistan. Challenges such as providing transportation, books, clothing, and even water for the students make each day a struggle for Naseem and his students. Donations received through the Sindhi Foundation help provide these basic supplies, as well as pay the modest monthly salaries for the three teachers and contribute to the annual rent for the small cement block school.
How you can help: Use the #GivingTuesday Helping Hands Penny Project template and lesson plan to create a fundraising service project for your class, or contact the Sindhi Foundation to find out other ways you can support this project.
