In developing nations, and indeed, here in the US, access to quality education can be a struggle for many. Lack of education perpetuates a cycle of poverty, relegating some communities to lives in deep inequity for generations. COPILOT Cares is working to break that cycle.
In Pakistan, this is a crisis-level issue. Over 20 million children aged 5-16 are out of school and over 5 million of those are primary school age. For that reason, through COPILOT Cares, President Dr. Moby Kazmi has joined the board of The Noor Project. Through partnership with this expansive philanthropic organization, COPILOT Cares is helping to fund the expansion of an established school in Pakistan that provides high-level education to children experiencing poverty.
While today the facility can house close to 600 students, many children are being turned away. An expansion will nearly double the capacity and grow their facility footprint from 4,000 to 22,000 square feet, helping to give many more children experiencing poverty a chance at a better life through education.
