“My father has no permanent job. I am the elder one among my sisters. It was very difficult to bear the expense of our studies with the basic necessities of life. 4 years ago, I left studying after giving my ninth grade exams because of poor conditions at home. After some time when our condition got better than before, I got admission in Gulshan Park School in ninth class again. It was not easy to continue my education but I tried really hard and got 370 marks in ninth class board exams. I hope I am able to continue my education in the future as well so I can support my parents and have a better lifestyle.” – Kousar, 14 years old

“When I was much younger I used to work on the rubbish dump but longed to go to school and now I do! I attend PCF School every day because I am keen to learn and the teachers help me in so many ways. My mother and father are so happy I am studying hard at PCF, and I am proud to be here. My grade pass was 82% and I passed all my subjects. My favourite subject is maths, and when I am older, I would like to become a teacher. I enjoy learning because it is something I can do for myself, and I know the school will help me achieve my ambitions.” – Angelica, 13 years old
