Maryam School for Girls

The Maryam School for girls located in Rawalpindi, Pakistan provides educational opportunities to girls and acts as a safe haven for children displaced by war, environmental disasters or other unfortunate circumstances. In addition to providing education and a residence for orphan girls, we also provide food, water and clothing.

Noureen and her daughter Maryam, both teachers, recognized the need for an institute that could provide education and a residence for displaced orphan girls. They initiated the project, but faced several financial challenges. They were able to raise funds to buy the land and build just a basement with concrete foundation. In April 2014, Green Sparrow Care took over the project in partnership with Noureen and Maryam. We have made huge strides, but still need funds to complete the project. With your help we hope to complete the construction of the room and board school, implement a basic educational program and provide vocational training.
