    why is the ticket so expensive?
    karachi would be a better place if Kamila would read in urdu and everyone who lives here… everyone – people from the overflowing banks of the lyari river to sailors at port qasim – could listen to her.
    it would be such an experience…

    The tickets are expensive because half of the proceeds are going towards earthquake relief and rest towards running of TCF schools. TCF has already built over a 150 schools and they have made a committment to the kids to run these schools, hence the vital importance of holding fundraisers to continuously improve standards of the schools.

    There is no point in Kamila reading in urdu because her books are in english. Since you feel so passionately about the people living at the lyari river why dont YOU organize an event for them????

    In the charity business, its all about the tapping the reach and hitting their sweet spot to raise funds e.g. holding golf tournaments – you aim for a very selected crowd to try and generate the funds.

    There should be a translation of her books.
    That would surely make them readable in urdu?
