That’s enough to fund not only the ten students we’ve been supporting, but more than 20 ADDITIONAL students attending Presbyterian Education Board schools in Pakistan! Thank you, Derry Church, for your amazing generosity.
It’s not too late to participate in this fundraiser that closes at the end of February and a final tally will be reported in March. Read on for details…
Meet Youail, One of Derry Church’s PEB Scholarship Recipients
Greeting from Sargodha. I am writing this note of thanks for the special care and support that you show in choosing me for the scholarship. I am trying my best to be a good student of my class. My school is the best, full of fun and care. I like coming to school. All teachers and my friends are very nice. Thank you again.
For ten 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.
Our goal is 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.”
