Ameena Finds Hope
In the treacherous mountainous area of Timergara, Lower Dir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan inclusion of people with disabilities is as evasive as a mirage in the dusty sand on a rainy day.
Often, people with disabilities tend to have poorer health outcomes, lower education achievements, higher rates of poverty, and less economic participation when the services they need are unavailable or inaccessible.
And as for many others like Ameena, who was confined to a wheelchair in her early childhood, finding education and inclusion had been a distant dream. However, with the tireless efforts of founder Khursheed Alam, a post polio survivprs who is leading the efforts to bring inclusion in this mountainous valley, with the establishment of Sada Foundation Special Education and Rehabilitation Center in Timergara where it offers a variety of services to empower people with disabilities in this region.
Your donation of only $150 can provide
a wheelchair to those most in need.
Ameena has not only been able to go to school at this center, but she found the welcoming environment and inclusion that was missing from her and her surroundings.
The center caters to over hundreds of students. EquallyAble is a proud supporter of the operational expenses of this center.
