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


Greetings from Sargodha. I am Youail and I study in class 9. I am from which is an agricultural city in Pakistan. Thank you very much for your love and concern in choosing me for scholarship. As I am in board class anxiously waiting for my exams which are becoming uncertain because of lockdown. But I am not loosing hope. Our school administration is going to have our send-up in November. I am trying my best to attempt nicely. Thank you very much again you are always in my prayers. May God protect you from coronel virus.

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.”
