NDMU Grads in Pakistan for Davis Projects for Peace

Recent ‪NDMU‬ graduates Amal Malik and Saba Shahzad are in Pakistan this summer, carrying out a clean water initiative with funding they were awarded from the Davis Projects for Peace. Many in our community have also contributed to this fantastic project. Their project, which they call Pak Hamara Pakistan (Our Pure Pakistan), is an initiative to provide clean drinking water and hand hygiene education to the local communities of the flood-prone villages of Kasur, an area adjacent to the large city of Lahore, Pakistan.

They will be blogging during their month-long experience, so we can accompany them in this important work. Read the blog at:https://pakhamarapakistan.wordpress.com/
