Preparations for the Pre-Xmas Pakistan Party

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.

Broodbakken voor de Steenbakkers


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.

Ongoing issues & events

Begin this year Stichting Diwa was officially registered in the Chamber of Commerce in Rotterdam. As a volunteer organisation we are proud that almost all our incomes are spend on our projects!

Stichting Diwa wants to support vulnerable people in Pakistan by providing them education.

Brick Kiln Workers Education Project

Gujranwala is one of the five biggest cities in Pakistan. It has a big community of brick kiln workers.

To support these brick kiln workers, Diwa developed a program in cooperation with a local partner organization (PSTA, see Links) in Pakistan.

The aim of the program is to empower the brick kiln workers and provide them opportunities to breakthrough the negative spiral of working in the brick kiln.
