Thank you very much for your continuing support of the SHDF Scholarship Program. It means a lot to all of us.
Your gift will not only be instrumental in transforming lives of many disadvantaged children, it will also provide added inspiration and bring us closer to our goal of granting 650 scholarships this year, compared to 550 given last year. In addition, every student helped is not only a life transformed, but it is also uplifting the entire family and, largely, the community.
We have so far granted 5,091 scholarships. More than 2,700 scholarship recipients have graduated and found good jobs. 65% of the scholarships were granted to students from rural areas of Punjab, and 74% of these scholarships have gone to female students.
Our goal is to empower our youth in Punjab and neighboring areas, to give them the foundation of education. It is a wonderful cause that will make our community grow today and for the future.
Once again, thank you for being a valued partner. We cannot do this vital community work without you.
