Victory Children’s Homes is endeavoring to change the nation of Pakistan through the education of its children.
A few years ago, we noticed a number of children roaming the streets on school days. Asking them why they weren’t at school, the children told explained that their parents could not afford to send them to school. (In Pakistan, each family must pay to send their children to school, so, sadly, much of the nation is illiterate.)
We decided to start schools in this dangerous nation and make education available for all. Today, we are working towards larger buildings for the schools, believing they will quickly triple the number of Students once we have the room.
Currently, we have 4 schools with 100 or more students in each school. Education is power, and by providing education to the children of the nation they will grow up with a greater understanding of the world around them and the ability to make a change in their generation.
Not only has Victory Children’s Home’s worked in this partnership to open schools, but we have endeavored to open Vocational Schools to give a trade to men and women to support their families. Giving a woman a trade, such as sewing, gives them hope for a way out of their poverty, despair and dangerous circumstance, as well as their children.
It is from these same neighborhoods that the uneducated kids are selected for training as militants in terror organizations such as Al Qaeda and Isis. By providing this education, any plans to torment, murder, and steal from the people in this troubled nation will be wiped out in a generation. So simple a gift is education, but it is power and life; it is one way that we are making a difference in Pakistan.
