Changing Lives/Giving Hope
While visiting Pakistan this summer, we visited Aabroo Educational Welfare Organization (Aabroo.org), a nonprofit dedicated to providing education and vocational training to children living in the slums of Lahore, Pakistan since 2002.
Aabroo now has 3 schools serving 3,500 children. Teachers also travel to various slums to teach children in their homes. They also provide a hot lunch everyday as well as free medical care.
Aabroo is supported only by private donors and money they raise from sale of recycling items collected from homes in the city.

Educate Children/Change Lives
Pakistan does not have the wide spread public education or welfare system that is available in the United States. While the government has some programs to help underprivileged children, they do not have enough resources to help everyone. These children live in terrible conditions and roam the streets all day with many becoming beggars.
This is where organizations like Aabroo come in, providing them education and vocation training and hope for a better life.
