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


Greetings from Sargodha. I am Tabish. I study in class 8. I live in Sargodha, the city which is famous for its oranges. It’s been two and a half months our school reopened after lockdown, effect my daily life and study bitterly. Nowadays I am preparing for my exam which are going to held in November. Thank you very for choosing me for scholarship. It is like a lifeline in these circumstances.Thank you very much 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.”
