Pirzada Family Scholarships

Because of a generous donation from Rafat Pirzada, a successful entrepreneur based in Silicon Valley, Koshish Foundation was able to extend its scholarship program to S.M. Law College, Karachi, Pakistan. On Nov/19/2011 Koshish Foundation volunteers met Principal of the college and handed over a check for PRS 229,000 (PRS Two Hundred Twenty Nine Thousand) to pay for the tuition, enrollment, and examination fee for 6 deserving students. Ms. Neelofur Master, Acting Dean, Bio-Medical Engineering Department, NED University of Engineering and Technology, was the guest of honor. She spent some time with Koshish volunteers and encouraged them to continue their efforts.

Faysal Lakhani of Koshish Foundation worked hard to make all this happen. He has been working diligently under the guidance of Mr. Sharifuddin Pirzada to make sure these scholarships go to the most deserving. Through written notices and class room announcements, Faysal made sure that the college students are well aware of this opportunity.
