Distribution of Books - 2015
Sunday, March 29, 2015
Punjab village Thatta Ghulamka Dheroka has history. And its history really started when SES volunteer Dr Senta Siller and Prof Dr Norbert Pintsch first visited this village some 25 years ago.
Thanks to SES volunteers, two government schools (one for girls and the other for boys have progressed visibly. Where else young scholars like Stephanie Walter or Sophie Kuppler come and teach English, where else teachers from government schools are trained by the NGOs (AFA), where else annual sports days are celebrated?
Education is very close to the heart of Farooq Ahmad (Director Men Centre of AFA) and Farana (Director Women Art Centre of AFA). One unique tradition of the NGO is to distribute books, school copies and other educational material among students right in the start of academic year.
On Friday, March 25, 2015, stage was set book distribution to students of two government schools. This year the support came from FPAC and SPARC-project in Lahore and through students from Punjab University.
Students of both schools look forward to this event and come in their best dresses for the occasion.
