The Garage School, Illuminating young souls & getting recognition

We at the KMB are not the only ones who recognize and value people dedicating their lives for others. In fact Chowk had a good report on TGS quite a long time ago. Daily DAWN today had a report about The Garage School we made a post on. It’s good to see this school getting attention. Politics & the normal stuff do eat up a good percentage of space but well done DAWN for this one. In a world where people compete for worldly achievements more the newspaper is very right when it says:

” In a society like ours, where most of the endeavours revolve around fulfilment of one’s own dreams, there still are people working relentlessly for the welfare of others. Such characters serve as beacons of light and source of inspiration in our society that is rapidly turning into a cluster of self-centred people. ”

It is a matter of acknowledgment that our newspapers do dedicate their space & highlight people like Mrs Shabina Mustafa who is finally getting her due attention she deserved long time ago. It should also be noted that we should dedicated some form of energy & resource to these people once, if not often as it’s our moral and religious duty to share our blessings with fellow humans. It’s also great to see people like Imtiaz Rastgar, paying one year rent & few companies helping Mrs. Shabina out.

They say Karachi doesn’t make the needy despair. Karachiites for sure have a big helping nature. The Earth Quake relief work was the best example. But Karachiites like Shabina Mustafa has proved that helping fellow humans can take many forms, in this case the Garage School. “Aafreen” to the women for this Jihad. A Jihad we need more than the one few have opted to. Please do check the need section of their website if you can help her out. The website has their contact info too.

    i beg to differ with newspapers dedicating spaces to such movements, its of no use. What newspapers need is to let common man know how brutally government set their useless priorities. For eg eduction whose Budget is three times less than what only Tobacco industry pays as a Tax ( 56 Billion rupees). It is even less than what the shoe industry pays as a tax. Its lowest in the region even lowest in SAARC.
