Rizwan Sharif has taken part in a sponsored charity trek to raise money for KRDF to help rebuild/maintain schools in Kashmir.
About the project
Thanks for visiting my Snowdonia Trek Page - I apprecaite your help and contributions!
The reason I am asking for your support today, is to raise money to help KRDF continue maintaining the schools rebuilt in Kashmir after the Earthquake in 2005. Having been in Kashmir in 2005 when the earthquake took place, it was a shock to the system to see the large scale of damage caused in the areas in Kashmir and gave me extra motivation to be able to help those who have suffered.
Established in 2005 by my later father, after the devastating earthquake that left over 70,000 people dead and almost all education infrastructure destroyed, we have successfully built SEVEN schools for children, helped thousands of women by providing them free vocational training and have helped many remote areas by providing fresh water supply. Alot of the areas we have rebuilt the schools in are remote areas with no access via car or train. These are the area where very few charities have been able to reach and we are proud to be able to provide free education facilities aswell as water supply facilities in these areas.
The Charity has been a great success so far, but in order for it to grow, they need more money!
Soooo that's why we've organised this trek up Wales' highest mountain to raise money for such a great cause.
Where will your money go?
The money you donate will help fund the schools that are currently running. To give a breakdown of how the money is spent:
child’s education for a month costs £20
teachers salary for a month costs £50
Furniture for classroom £350
Any donation big or small is really really appreciated, so please sponsor us today!
