Farooqabad is a good size town in Sheikhupura District and is populated with people in all types of economic levels, from very rich to very poor. ABC school in Farooqabad has been established to cater to the needs of families and children who live below poverty line and cannot afford to send their children to school. Parents and guardians of most of the children in this school work as domestic helpers, daily wagers who work when job is available, on brick kilns, work-hands for land owners and other low paying jobs. Many live under huge sums of debt as a result of borrowing for family needs and are forced to work under unacceptable conditions. The only way out of these dire situations, for their future generations, is to receive formal education and get a good job. If left to meet the educational needs of their children on their own, parents and guardians would rather choose to send their children to work. They are willing to send their children to school as long as it does not become a burden on their already meager earning. ABC Children’s Aid is a big blessing for over 240 children who study in this school from grades 1 to 10.
Children in this school need individual sponsors so we want to encourage you to become a sponsor to make a lasting difference in the lives of these deserving children.
