Pakistani news site Dawn.com has an article praising the work of community leaders and activists in Pakistani towns in keeping communities together and strong:
“Our real leaders are the thousands of community activists in our midst – not necessarily well-known. They are heroes in their own right. They deserve our gratitude.”
We would like to thank the wonderful people we work with in Pakistani communities; they are eminently committed to enabling access to education for children in their communities, benefiting not only these children but the community as a whole.
Agha Imram Ali Khan is our Director of Operations in Pakistan. Liaqat Ali manages the Islamabad/Rawalpindi region, where Amna Irfan is the Headmistress of our Barakahu School; Asma Rasheed, Nazia Kamran, Nalia Baber, Samia Maqbaoi, and Mubeen Akher teach at Barakahu, where Rami Babi is the Maid/Cook, and Abdul Resheed provides security.
