The story of Kanwal helps illustrate what the spirit of Hope is all about. Hailing from a family which could barely make ends meet, Kanwal was able to obtain education in one of Hope’s home schools. She is now a teacher in one of these schools but still harbours the dream of obtaining higher education. Help raise PKR 100,000 and contribute to the fund for Kanwal’s higher education.
