Dear Jennifer,

Thanks a lot for expressing my views with your best explanation. Obviously, load shedding problem of electricity is giving me a tough time to explain about my all activities.

I got good number of students in computer classes but unfortunately, soon I lost all of them just because of the power being out. Undoubtedly, it was very bad experience because there was no schedule from the power department.

I'm doing my best to utilize my whole energy in the best way, where it's needed to serve my maximum efforts for the cause of promoting education & various skills of the native females who want to change their lives & interested in uplifting their living standard.

About out side contacts in my community from last couple of weeks I'm trying to get the positive support from locals but I think you can realize the conditions are not favoring me specially in matter of girls education. Somewhere due to the threats & fear of terrorists, somewhere due to narrow minded thoughts & somewhere due to poverty & other limited resources of spending their lives. Simply I'm trying to swim against the flow of river & it's always hard job to do.

Here life is "as hard as stone". Let's see, what can I do the best of mine?

But one thing is crystal clear your support always put new hope inside of me. It always boosts up my confidence & persuades me to perform my efforts in the superb way.

Thanks for your impressive cooperation.

Best regards,

Adnan Khan.

Adnan has been able to take several pictures of the the school - it has sustained extensive damage. All of the stationary is lost (files, notebooks, some valuable books for library, dictionaries, small and large printed envelopes, file covers & all other necessary material used for school like chalk, erasers, their electric water machine, all of the computers, toys for the children, etc. Flood waters have gone into the school at least 3 times. As you can imagine, this is a devastating loss. I have attached a link to pictures that Adnan shared with me this week. At this time, monsoon rains are expected to continue.

Dear all-

I have been communicating closely with both Adnan and Khadim over the past week with regard to the devastating flooding in Pakistan. Adnan has been able to take several pictures of the the school - it has sustained extensive damage.

All of the stationary is lost (files, notebooks, some valuable books for library, dictionaries, small and large printed envelopes, file covers & all other necessary material used for school like chalk, erasers, their electric water machine, all of the computers, toys for the children, etc. Flood waters have gone into the school at least 3 times. As you can imagine, this is a devastating loss.

I have attached a link to pictures that Adnan shared with me this week. At this time, monsoon rains are expected to continue. Adnan and Khadim are both safe, but please continue to remember the people of Pakistan during this difficult time.

Kind regards-

Jennifer
