To build Kensington and Chealsea School in Bagarool Kashmir
We have rised £18,510 on the day, And we still ringing fund for school
Everyone recalls the horrors of the 8th October 2006 Pakistan Earthquake. Millions of people were affected and continue to be so. Many families from the United Kingdom had a particular interest through their family and historical migration connections.
Third World Solidarity is working with other organisations and groups to develop particular Education projects.
Third World Solidarity has identified, as a starting project, a school in village “Bagrool” Disst. “Bagh” in Kashmir, which was at the epicenter of the Quake. The school was called Kensington & Chelsea School. The school had over 700 pupils studying in October « Last year and a large number died as a result of the earthquake disaster. As well as the considerable and devastating human loss, those left behind still today have no facilities since the buildings, as well as all the equipment, were destroyed. As a result children have had to make do with makeshift temporary structures, with no shelter from the elements and little or no equipment. The aim is that the school will be completed by the end of 2007 and handed to the local Government. The school will cater for pupils from the age of 5 to 18 years old for both boys and girls. The estimated cost of the school is approximately £70,000.
We know that you have been donating generously but as we know too well disasters continue once the television cameras have moved on. There are many years of long term development needed. With this in mind we are hoping that you will join us on Saturday the 25th November 2006 for a fundraising dinner in Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street, London. The cost was £100 per person... There was a three course meal, together with entertainment on the evening.
