APPEAL FOR DONATION/ZAKAT/GRANTS TO PUBLICAN ALUMNI TRUST
I on behalf of Members of Publican Alumni Trust Board and myself as Chairman would like to acknowledge and appreciate your always forthcoming support to The Publican School and its activities towards the betterment of Education in Pakistan.
Since the inception of the school i.e. 2015, we have achieved many milestones with the help of our donor’s generous contribution. From this year (Academic year 2020), we are starting Secondary classes as last year we secured the registration of PAT school upto Matric level.
With your support we have successfully built 2nd floor on the existing school building to start higher classes including science and computer labs. As you all know that we provide not only quality education but also inculcate Ethical values and discipline through regular sessions and third part seminars.
The budget of the expansion plan during the last year and a half, has reached around Rs. 20 Million. We expect to raise another Rs. 30M to meet both Capital and Operational expenditures. Audited Financials of the Publican Alumni Trust is available on our website www.publicantrust.com
Standard of education at The Publican School is not less than any private schools in Pakistan, however, school fee is kept very low to facilitate low income fa,milies of Korangi vicinity.
Alhamdolillah, Allah has blessed you with more than your compatriots. Many of you have in the past extended support in cash and in kind whenever we appealed and requested for Donations in form of Zakat or Grants. Again this year month of Ramadan is just around the corner, and therefore I am making a special appeal to a selected few, and you are one of them, for urgent support to Publican Alumni Trust.
The Publican Alumni Trust (PAT) was established in January 2009 by Publicans, Alumni of Cantonment Public School, Karachi and its successor schools. The Trust was registered under the leadership of Senator (R) Javed Jabbar as its Founder Chairman and is currently led by Admiral (R) Shahid Karimullah. It is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) created with the fundamental purpose and aim to mobilize resources to support the cause of education in Pakistan in its most comprehensive and qualitative sense.
Your Zakat and donations can help break the inter-generational cycle of poverty and inequality, turning dependence into self-reliance and our children into responsible, empowered and active citizens. This unique gift of quality education will continue to create a lasting impact on the lives of these children, their families and our entire society – for generations to come. In the coming month of Ramzan, a month of sharing and generosity, let us resolve to make quality education available to every child in Pakistan.
