Meet Hossana, One of Derry Church’s PEB Scholarship Recipients


My name is Hossana and I study in class 2. I wish to become a doctor in future. Your angelic presence on the earth is of great importance. Because of you it is possible to fulfil the dreams of my parents. We can’t forget you support specially in the time of COVID-19 lockdown situation. We really love you and always pray for you and your family. Thank you once again.

For 11 years, Derry Church has maintained a partnership with the Presbyterian Education Board in Pakistan. PEB operates 25 schools, primary through high school, including some boarding schools, that serve more than 5,900 students. Derry, through the Friends of Sargodha group, has a particular relationship with the schools in Sargodha. 

Friends of Sargodha’s goal is to continue to provide ten scholarships every year. You can help.

A full scholarship for a day student is $370 a year, about a dollar a day. We are dividing that amount into ten shares, $37 each, to offer you the opportunity to support a portion of a scholarship. 

You can purchase one or more shares by writing a check to Derry Church notated “Pakistan Scholarship” or giving online through the church website and selecting “Pakistan Scholarship.”
