Update from EGM Pakistan

Greetings from Pakistan, 

Hopefully you are all well there. We keep all of you in our prayers, please pray for us. 

I am glad to share with you the November 2020 report of the Scholarships Project. 


Recent Events


Schools, colleges and universities reopened in September 2020 after six months of being closed due to COVID-19. In winter the number of cases is increasing but the Government made the decision not to close all educational institutions. Unfortunately, thousands of students have had to leave schools due to unpaid fees from last six months. We are getting hundreds of new applications and very fairly selecting students on merit for scholarships.
