Kiva Pitch for GT_1262245
Shahpal is a 21-year-old woman who runs a school, which was established by her family 11 years ago, to educate socially disadvantaged students. There are 227 students enrolled in the school, and 42% of them are female students. The aim of the school is to provide the students with a balanced and broad curriculum to help them contribute positively towards the overall welfare of society later in their lives. Each new student is assessed, and they are taught according to their individual needs.
In order to have a better physical environment in the school, Shahpal wants to purchase different resources such as computers and furniture, and construct more classrooms. However there is a lack of funds. She has requested an amount of PKR 200,000 to purchase furniture and computers, as well as to construct additional classrooms.
