Maheen Akram for KEI Ramadan 2019 fundraiser


Dear friends:

Hope you are all having a blessed Ramadan. The bounties of the holy month are many, paramount being the rewards for prayer and generosity which are amplified many times over. The Holy Prophet (SAWS) remarked that “The best charity is that given in Ramadan.”

To acquire and seek knowledge and education is a sacred duty beholden upon all of us. At KEI, we endeavor to provide access to holistic education to highly talented but underprivileged children in Kashmir.

It is our pleasure to inform you that your generous support over the last year has allowed KEI to:

  • Increase the strength of our HSSP (High School Scholarship) program by an additional 50 students annually starting with the incoming class in the 2019 program year. An increase of 33 percent year on year

  • Plan and budget for a total of 40 competency workshops for 2019 versus a total of 10 in the preceding year. An increase of 300 percent year on year

  • Provide guidance and support to highly talented scholars like Asiya Khursheed who will be attending the highly selective MCW Global Young Leaders program this summer in the United States.

Our ambition continues to outgrow our resources and we entreat upon you to continue supporting the cause of education of Kashmir’s underprivileged children. In this holy month, while considering charities, we request you to make KEI your preferred choice. By donating to KEI, you continue to change lives by providing access to education to the underprivileged and the destitute.

We sincerely thank you for your continued support! Have a blessed Ramadan and a joyous Eid!
