Upper Chitral is the newly formed district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa situated in the extreme north of Pakistan bordering the Wakhan corridor. Because of the remoteness of the region, most of the people either rely on farming or daily wage labor in the cities to run their households. A major challenge faced by Upper Chitral is the lack of opportunities for the young generation to pursue education in well-reputed schools, colleges and universities in Chitral. The students have had to give up their high education due to economic constraints and lack of financial stability despite passing very competitive and rigorous entry tests.
Consider this enormous challenge to the quality education in Upper Chitral, MASS has taken the initiative to support gifted students to study from top-notch educational institutions to accomplish their educational dreams and ambitions. Through the educational scholarship program, MASS wants to ensure that no child is left behind in education due to economic constraints. Once the students enroll in quality education, they in turn become mentors for others during summer breaks, thus changing the fate of the marginalized area. Our hope is for them to continue to flourish in their educational endeavors. With the generous contributions from our donors, we want to make education possible for the under-resourced yet highly ambitious and talented students from Upper Chitral.
