An LFT-MICT initiative to help students in financial need Empowering communities through literacy
THREE MONTHS WORKSHOP FOR PREPARATION OF STUDENTS TO UNDERTAKE ENTRY TESTS
FOR MEDICAL, ENGINEERING AND OTHER PROFESSIONAL COLLEGES
“Ignorance is dangerous but knowledge without responsibility is more dangerous”
MICT in collaboration with the Lady Fatemah (AS) Trust is seeking to raise funds for fifteen promising young graduates from high school and pre professional colleges who have all shown academic success but have the common feature of belonging to low income households from Pakistan’s northern Gilgit-Baltistan region. The majority of these students have completed their college education with high enough grades that have positioned them well to compete in entrance examinations for entering medical schools, engineering universities or other professional colleges. The success of these students in entering professional careers will eventually enable them to transform the living conditions of their entire families.

Sister Hanan Kaed Balhas from South Lebanon wishing to complete TS Nursing
Hanan and her husband have agreed on the need of additional financial and existential support for their emerging family. Hanan, as a young new mother, has opted for vocational nursing because, in her own opinion, it will help her to take a better care for her family and by preserving a better family health, their quality of life will be improved and their expenses will diminish. And thus, her family will participate in building a healthier and happier society. Consequently, her sword to kill poverty will be inchallah by the will of God, her nursing degree.
92 Iraqi (Kerbala) Orphans received 15th Sponsorship on 19th May 2010. Phase No 2 (Total Orphans under the scheme 350 Kerbala Orphans)
The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said:
“ …. Blessed is the wealth of a Muslim from which he gives to the poor, the orphans and to needy travellers. ….”
The number of needy orphans in Iraq is perhaps greater than that in any other country. Iraq has suffered under a brutal dictator for more than 25 years, and continues to suffer from insecurity and internal strife. Every day, fathers die due to avoidable causes and small children are deprived of their love and care as well as their financial support. About half of the orphans under LFT’s care in the holy city of Najaf have lost their fathers to some kind of violent incident, be it execution by Saddam’s regime, a car explosion or a terrorist attack. Those who died of disease frequently died due to lack of medical facilities or money to pay for treatment.
Atfaluna Society for Deaf Children (ASDC) Prevocational Class Program for Deaf and Hearing Impaired Children Enrolled in Deaf Education Classes
Ten years ago, a special class at Atfaluna School was established to assist fourteen (14) deaf students in its care who suffered from other health complications besides deafness and whose educational progress was hindered. Now and after years of educational and psycho-social support, the fourteen deaf students are becoming young men and women who need a different kind of help and attention.
