Fatima Habib, Medical Student “I am Fatima my father name is Gull Habib. I am in the third years in a medical school. Thanks very much from kindly help which your organization pay to my university and I will tell you one story of my life in university about money. There is one law in our university that we should pay money before they take the exam. If a student has money he can sit exam but if a student didn’t have money, he can’t sit exam.
When they start the exam the last of the students who had not paid the money, were sent to outside from exam. Tears come from my eyes and I say with myself, the God is kindly to find kindly peoples for me paying my university money. I haven’t met with them but they are ready to pay for my university. I am praying to God will help all time with them. I am very, very happy that I can’t say in my letter”.

Mav Dimple Navin, Bachelor of Arts "A kite without a string is meaningless; a door without a latch is useless; a lock without a key is pointless. In the same way, a child without knowledge has no substance.
We all know that poverty is a curse. In today’s life it is difficult to live in poverty – it is nearly impossible. Every person has a right to have a dream. Every one desires to have a life of a king, and achieve their highest goal. This may not be possible for all, especially for students like us. Therefore we are not able to shape our future in accordance with our dream.
I hope you will always lend your support to our organisation and will thereby always help our students to stand on their own feet. Again, I express my gratitude to you, from the bottom of my heart."
