Mein Fauji Banungi
17 minutes before the school’s ring, a debate about future plans was underway in class two. Each one was sharing his dream. From the front one said I would be a doctor, one said I want to become a pilot; others said they will be teachers, engineers or something else.
In this noise, a voice echoed in class saying “mein fauji banungi” means I would be a soldier and will protect my country. She was Alishba; this innocent and pretty child is hardly 8 years old but her dream as big as a 25-year-old boy’s dream. The teacher asked her the reason, she replied; “I want to die for my country as soldiers do”. Alishba is an orphan girl who has a mother and a younger sister. Both sisters study at Noor Grammar School. Her mother works in a factory to earn income for their family.
Alishba and her family are just one chapter from the book of poverty but there are so many individuals like them who also have such great dreams but can’t pursue them. The Noor Project has created a podium through its programs to assist impoverishes to pursue their dreams.
