16-year-old Zainab* was forced to drop out of school after being unable to pay her tuition for four months. She wants to study and join the police force, but her family is not able to pay the fees and transportation as her father is an auto rickshaw driver.
However, she is very thankful that RAM has given her free admission to our computer training institute and also assists with her transportation.
While she attends the computer classes regularly, she hopes to continue her education one day.
RAM’s computer training center is one way that we work to end the cycle of poverty for religious minorities in Pakistan. By offering free job training, young people can access higher paying jobs so that their children can remain in school longer.
However, it’s not just about offering free education. In limited cases, we are able to cover transportation fees to and from the center due to a lack of affordable transportation and prohibitive walking distances.
Would you consider supporting this initiative? It’s a life-saving and generation-changing cause.
