Pakistan: Back to School Campaign for Eid Ul Fitr

"One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” – Malala Yousafzai

Our Student Representative Council (SRC) is delighted to announce the opening of the “Pakistan: Back to School Campaign for Eid Ul Fitr" during Term 1, partnered with Mercy Wings Australia, a non-profit organisation to help send education supplies and school bag packs to support underprivileged, orphaned and displaced children living in Pakistan with their education.

It is every child’s right to get an education.

The aim is to send more than 5,000 Eid Ul-Fitr gift school packs & education supplies to different street & village schools in Pakistan. It will take 6 to 8 weeks for shipping to reach Pakistan. The distribution will be around close to Eid Ul Fitr time.

DEADLINE is Monday, 8 April 2019.

This is a noble cause and an enjoyable way to bring our children, family and friends closer as a community. We look forward to joining hands together to help needy children.
