  1. Thank you for sharing. It is deeply touching to see so many cities now do Walk Runs to raise funds for the poor,
    which was unheard of till a few years ago and now i see so many cities raise funds for children, education, poverty and much more. Congratulations.


  2. Poverty elimination is a very very slow process as it is based on detailed planning and has to focus on each family and in very rare cases on communities,like the famous hadith of the Holy Prophet of Islam,the project or the initiative must concentrate on teaching them to catch fish and not to be provided by a fish dinner alone,in fact that can also become necessary in some cases.A combination of right long term strategies and and well thought out planning is absolutely necessary and patience for the unfolding rewards will fill up the hearts of the donor and the planners.
