Ongoing issues and events
by Jan Dirk Schouten
A lot has happened since the first newsletter. In Pakistan work has been done by investigating brick kiln areas and defining places to start schools and by informing brick kiln workers about the education project. The people are very enthusiastic and are looking forward to the moment the school really will start. Shahlla visited her family in Gujranwala and also visited the brick kiln workers. More about this in this newsletter.
Zaterdag 20 november werden we gastvrij ontvangen bij Bakkerij Kersten in Rotterdam voor een broodbakworkshop ten gunste van het Steenbakkers Onderwijs Project van Stichting Diwa. We werden direct aan het werk gezet met het maken van een rijkgevulde kerststol. Het was nog niet eenvoudig om alle rozijnen, sucade en noten in het deeg te kneden.
Stichting Diwa is supporting since 2019 the study sponsor programme in Pakistan. At present we have 35 students whom tuition/school fee is paid by stichting Diwa. This programme is special for young children/people who are suffering with financial constraints and are not able to continue or complete their study. Our selection criteria for students include the parents with very low income, single mothers and orphan children raised by grandparents/ relatives.
