In 2021, Global Minorities Alliance was approached by a local primary headteacher from the city of Sahiwal, in Pakistan with a request to support the needy school children who were struggling to pay for their school fees.
The parents of these children come from poor daily labourers whose livelihood was hit by the global pandemic. Some of parents come from brick kiln background where children were born into debt by their parents.
Education for most of the children become a distant dream!
With this request to support these children, Global Minorities Alliance, set up Ida and Franz Welmann Education Fund which aims to provide scholarship to school children in Pakistan and Kenya. With financial support from GMA supporters, the charity was able to support most needy children from the school. This year, GMA has paid the full academic year of these children which were identified by their teachers.
“I do not have parents. I live with my grandparents who do not have enough money to support my studies. I want to study to support my grandparents and have a successful life” – Minha, One of the recipients of Ida and Franz Welmann Fund
GMA has bought this gift of education for these children who are keen to excel in their studies, despite having financial struggles in life, these children continue to study to change their circumstances. The fund will be extended to slum children in Kibera Kenya next year which has on-going partnership with GMA.
GMA is thankful for any support and contributions to help make a difference in lives of these Children through your gift.
Be part of someone’s dream! For every £60 raised, another child’s education is secured for a year.
