March, 2008 UPDATE

The School for Iqbal update received today from Pakistan:

To the Supporters of the School for Iqbal Campaign,

I congratulate the Broad Meadows Middle School students for extending their support to help their peers in various parts of the developing world . (called "Operation Day's Work-USA" ) You will be happy to know that several students from the School for Iqbal have graduated to Class 9 and 10 in government schools and some of them are even in college. We are planning a local support system so that all children who want to pursue higher education are not denied that opportunity because of lack of resources. We are planning a sponsorship program whereby we will pick up individual beneficiaries and after we have covered 25-30 students we will go public with the idea. Pakistan is in difficult circumstances, but... we have just started a small project in Pakistan in which 250 children already enrolled in madrassahs (religious schools) will also be given contemporary education. This promises to be a rewarding experience and we would like to keep you in touch with the developments. Meanwhile many regards to you and the students of BMMS who have been the torch bearers in the struggle to attain the rights of children the world over.

Warm regards

Fawad and colleagues at the School for Iqbal in Pakistan
