Consignment of books sent to Azad Kashmir & Pakistan January 2006
A large consignment of books and educational resources sent to Azad Kashmir and Pakistan in January 2006.
One of the aims of KEK UK is to actively seek support for its work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan from local institutions. Part of this effort is to collect books and educational resources from UK. Over the past year we have successfully accumulated over 20 tones of books mostly due to the generous donation by the Kirklees Education Services through the efforts of Kathryn Sheard the information Resources Manager. These books and resources for our KEF schools and the Institute of Teacher Education (ITE) were stored at the Whetley Mills warehouse in Bradford, thanks to Mr Mussadik Hussain, Chairman of KEF UK, until arrangements could be made to ship them to Pakistan.
The consignment was finally ready and a container was booked from Kerry Logistics (UK) Ltd of Leeds and the loading took place on Wed 25th January 2006. The 20 ft container full of books and other educational resource materials was sent on its way to Qasim port Karachi. From Karach it will be transported by road to the newly built Pakhowal campus by road insha’Allah.
There were 700 cartons of these resources which will make a major impact on the standard of educational services being provided by KEF to the talented children from economically deprived families in rural areas of Azad Kashmir and Pakistan.
