  5. Congratulate for this great work but do we know that we are doing nothing for our Boys I mean those who doesn’t have the opportunity to continue their studies in Huna, Gilgit or another cities of Pakistan, we have the one and only Aga khan school in Gilgit which is only for those who have approach to get there or only few students form poor people can go there, rest we are still sending our kids to Karachi just for nothing coz there is no choices. Shah Karim Hostel was the only hope for the poor population of GB but now that is only for those people how have handsome money to pay and who is studding in Higher secondary School this was not the aim of Shah Karim Hostel I guess . Is this our beloved Imam’s vision? That education for some people.

  6. “The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others.”

    I personally Congratulate You all Particpant for devoting your time, resources and showing good response to the people of Gojal. I hope that the fund will be utilized in the best manner and Inshallah our Dream will come true in the future in the shape of Gojal University. I want thanks to all the persons whom I know very welland indeed they did their job well done.
