Hoshyar reports in their recent newsletter, “Our non-profit partners in Pakistan continue to develop productive relationships with each community and with the government. Hoshyar, together with Friends’ Welfare Association, expanded two abandoned girls’ middle schools into high schools and returned them to government support this year. We also converted a beautiful primary school in Bararkot village into a full-scale high school where classes are held in two shifts.
Probably the most exciting development in 2013 was that Hoshyar inaugurated higher secondary courses in four of our six schools. Twenty-four high school graduates in KPK are taking college prep classes in the humanities and sciences, and three new teachers have been hired. Scholarships for these courses are made possible by a donation from the Friends of Pakistan USA.“
