Some months ago, we began to introduce FEF and its work through social media. Our thinking was that the more people know about our work the more support we will receive, and consequently the more schools we will be able to add to our network – remember the quote ‘today Germany tomorrow the world’, same spirit with a totally different motivation. When our messages started doing the rounds, we were surprised by the number of needy that reached out to us to provide to them, mostly unrelated to our cause. You’ll probably say, ‘obviously, what else did you expect’. Yeah! But what it did was further cement our resolve at FEF to continue doing our part and to continue it with stronger vigor.
As a result of our campaign, we now have schools asking us to start our program in Orangi, Lyari, Korangi and beyond Karachi - even in Thar, the desert area in Sindh that is most underdeveloped. In earnest, we would start today in all those places if we could, but I know that we have to pace ourselves with the flow of resources – Rome wasn’t built in a day. Judging from the distance we have covered since our start we are confident that we will soon be present in all those places and many more.
With all this in mind, here are some updates on the exciting things that have happened since we last spoke.
