Dear fellow Publicans,

Assalam-o-alaikum.

1.      On behalf of all members of the Publican Alumni Trust, I convey sincere thanks to all those 16 Publicans (named below) who have responded so promptly and generously to the recent impassioned appeal from Trustee Khawaja Fariduddin, Convener, PAT Fund-raising Committee for donations in Ramazan to help students from low-income families studying in the 2 main successor Schools of our alma mater.

2.      Each of these 16 Publicans symbolizes the values of caring and sharing that we were imbued with during our days in School.

3.      In view of the range of activities that PAT conducts e.g. scholarships, teachers’ capacity-building, gifts of computers and books, motivational lectures and interactions with students, innovative competitive events to develop capability in original writing and public-speaking, educative field trips, etc. we request that you permit your valuable contributions to be used wherever they are most needed.

4.      The Board of Trustees ensures that funds are used with relevance, integrity and for optimal benefit of the deserving and the disadvantaged.

5.      To endorse Khawaja Fariduddin’s appeal: the overwhelming majority of Publicans have not yet responded to the appeal i.e. out of 530 Publicans on this e-mail list, responses have been received from less than 4%!  Where are the rest of you?!.  Many of you contributed in 2008 to make the Golden Jubilee a memorable event and to launch our fund-raising campaign. All Trustees also contribute their time, resources and donations on a regular basis.

6.      There is still vast scope and urgent need for your donations, particularly from all those Publicans who have achieved well-deserved financial security and prosperity.

7. Also on behalf of all colleagues, I convey the message of Eid Mubarak to you, and to all those dear to you, wishing you continued good health and well-being

8. Do make a special effort to participate in the 2009 Annual Reunion to be held in Karachi on Saturday, 12th December 2009. Visit the website (www.oldpublicans.com) for further details.

9. And before that date, we also have other PAT events already scheduled to which you are cordially invited: The next event is scheduled at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, 30th September 2009 for a Declamation Contest and the Gift of Books. Another is scheduled at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, 20th October 2009 for the 3rd Distinguished Publican Lecture Series, this one to be delivered by Trustee and Vice-Chairman, PAT, Zaffar Ahmed Khan, Class of 1961.

Thank you for your attention.

With best wishes,

Javed Jabbar

Dear PAT Supporter

I am writing to express my personal gratitude for your support to The Publican Alumni Trust (PAT) over the years. Your belief in the cause of education has made all the difference in the lives of children from less privileged community who would otherwise may have never seen the inside of a classroom.

I am also very pleased to share that with countless blessings of Allah and your support; the facilities of The Publican School have been upgraded to cater for students from Class 1 to Matriculation.  Besides renovation of the current school building this necessitated construction of an additional floor to accommodate additional classrooms, laboratories and library.  The current student strength stands at over 400 and the student registration is expected to grow in coming years.  Now, more than ever, we need your financial support for the following:

 

As we approach the month of sharing and generosity, let us renew our promise today … to the children studying in The Publican School … and to the many more who are languishing in failing schools or are left wandering aimlessly on the streets. Let us vow that we will not look away or leave them behind … that we will give them what they need and deserve …. a reason to hope for a better tomorrow. Your Zakat and donations can help them change their lives and give them reason to dream!

Please give your Zakat & Donations generously by making a crossed cheque in favour of “Publican Alumni Trust” and sending it to:
