About a week ago, we held our 13th Annual SOL Gala. With the help of our dedicated volunteers (some not pictured here), we were able to meet our goal of raising $50,000 in less than 10 minutes. All donations from the event will be used to support the children in Pakistan to help get them one step closer to their educational goals and bringing their family out of poverty. This cause is so dear to all of us at SOL, but none of this would have been possible without our giving donors and hard working volunteers. Thank you to all those who came to support our mission!
When planning this great adventure, Babar Suleman knew he wanted to use the opportunity to raise funds for a cause. The question was, which one? With so many amazing organizations doing work around the world, Babar narrowed his focus to an organization focused on education and women’s rights, and a cause that particularly emphasized education of girls and women. With this goal in mind, the choice was clear: The Citizens Foundation.
Father-and-son team of Babar and Haris Suleman will fly around the world in 30 days in a single-engine plane to raise money to build schools in rural Pakistan! Together, they will travel nearly 26,000 miles, through 25 cities, during the course of several hundred hours! Follow their progress by clicking “Babar’s Blog.”
Seeds of Learning held the official launch party for the record-breaking flight on Saturday June 7th.
