We will be welcoming 15 children in our first batch. We have promised ourselves to teach - and treat - these children as our own. We are so excited - and anxious - to see what challenges we will face in next 6 months.

Please continue supporting us for the best results.
 
The classroom is all ready to welcome our first batch of 15 children from various shops, factories, and fields. These children have not been to school at all in their lives so far. Now, they'll be able to learn Insha'ALLAH!

A team of 5 people - already successful in their fields - from US & Canada will teach the class for 5 days in a week.

Thanks to your generous donations, we have new furniture in the class. And big shout out to The Ghani Foundation for their continuous support for all logistical matters on ground.

Please keep supporting us so more children can benefit from this initiative.

Compassion is not enough. We must ACT.
 
Does this children not have the right to learn?

Likes and +1s won't help them get what they need. It's time to ACT on it.

Need help with some information regarding Google People Management Strategy

Hi Fellas,

As part of my MBA, I am studying People Management strategies of different companies. Google is one of them. Can you please help me with few short answers?

1. What you have to say about Google's overall People management strategy?
2. How employees are motivated and rewarded? non-financial factors?
3. Which aspects do you find most appealing, and which concern you?
4. What advantages you see in Google as compared to others like Apple and Amazon?
5. What do you think is a disadvantage in Google's policy?
6. What would you do differently, and why?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Lack of education is not the only issue, lack of enough food is important too.

We all can help. Please think about these innocent children.
 
You can't teach someone with an empty stomach. We fill their stomachs before feeding their brains.

You can help too. Donate at www.letsawake.org/donate.html

This is the type of children we aim to help through +Let's Awake

There are many like him out there. We have the means to help him. Let's come together and give these children a chance of better life. Please visit www.letsawake.org on how you can help.

Abdul Sami is a not even 10 years old boy who works at a factory with his mother to support his family. He wants to go to school but his family can't afford it. Moreover, his dad is a drug addict who demands money for his addiction. Doesn't he have the right to get education, and better life?

Read full story below.

======================
We are starting a series of stories called "Deserving Ones". In this series you will get to know some of the kids who you have volunteered to educate with your time and money.
Today I would like to share the story of Abdul Sami. He is enrolled in our program.

Abdul Sami is from one of the lesser fortunate areas of Lahore called Shahdara Moor. Like yours and mine kids, he dreams of having a life full of joys and toys around him. A life where his mother and father spend their days and nights pampering him. Instead when he wakes up in the morning, his day starts in shattered hut of a grim neighborhood where there are hundreds of Abdul Sami going through the same back breaking struggle of helping their parents financially.

Abdul Sami works in a small factory along with his mother which makes plastic decoration items. His younger brother is attending the free school run by our partner organization (Ghani Foundation). Abdul Sami's mother tried putting him in this school aswell, however his father who stays home and who is a drug addict started demanding more and more money from his mother. As a caring mother, she did everything possible in this world that she could, to work as hard and long as possible to take care of their household expenses and fulfil the growing demands from his abusive and addict husband. However this consistent demand of more and more money from her abusive husband broke her back. Eventually with a heavy heart she took Abdul Sami out of Ghani Foundation School and put her in the factory she works in so together they can take little more money home every evening.

We understand that Abdul Sami cannot spend his full or even half day in a formal school because if he does then his family may end up sleeping empty stomach.

That is why Let's Awake has created this program to help these kids utilize their early morning hours in our program. As a student in our program, Abdul Sami starts his day with a healthy breakfast in our safe and secure class room in Shahdara, Lahore and after breakfast he receives his education from 8am to 10 am, which includes basic literacy of practical Maths, reading English and Humanity, taught by us remotely from our homes in Canada and the UK.

InshaAllah, using these practical literacy and skill sets, he can uplift his socio-economic status and pull his family out of this grim cycle of poverty.

No doubt there are many problems in my country back home, but we can't wait for some miracle to happen and everything will be fixed. The solution to most of our problems is in awareness and education.

Therefore, I along with some friends have taken an initiative to give free and practical education to poor and working children in Pakistan.

Please visit www.letsawake.org to help us give these children an opportunity that they might not have otherwise.

+Asjad Hasan Thanks for the question dear. 

In our proof of concept stage, we had children with some schooling experience so retention and motivation factors were manageable. However, the use of interactive and online content increased the confidence and engagement level of children by many fold.

For the children from workshops, there are various incentives built in the program; starting with free breakfast (of good quality) to encourage them to attend the class. Weekly entertainment with an animation movie, popcorn party, ice cream, pizza party, or some savoury snacks. Ad-hoc performance rewards to encourage participation in the class.

In future, depending on the financial means, we will support their families with basic food items like flour, oil, rice, or sugar etc. These incentives will be tied to student's regular attendance and participation in the class.

Third option - that we are trying to avoid - is to compensate the students and/or their families with some cash that would have been brought by these working children from their work.

Please feel free to buzz me if you have more questions.

We stayed at this hotel overnight for our trip from Toronto to NYC during xmas holidays. It was our first time stopping over at this hotel. I booked this hotel because of many good reviews. And I must say, they were all right. The hotel was clean, the receptionist was friendly, and the room was bigger than I expected. It had two queen beds, a couch, a little kitchen with microwave and disposable cutlery, a dining table, and TV. Wifi speed was good as kids could stream Netflix. The beds were soft and comfortable. In the morning, the breakfast was usual one, but good. The neighbourhood has a lot of other hotels and shops close by though closed on xmas eve. Overall, we were happy with our stay and wouldn't mind staying again next time on our trip to NYC.

Have been using this service for last 6 years by now to call long distance. The quality and charges have been competitive. I am a satisfied user. However, I don't like the app experience. It is still old and would expect them to improve it.

The taste of most items we tried over last one year has been great. It involves, biryani, samosa chaat, nihari, pakora karri, paye and halwa puri. The order takes time so be ready to wait.However, we like the taste and price for easy take out option. I would surely recommend it.

I went there while finding some halal option nearby in Regina based on google reviews and I found them good. It's a small family restaurant with a nice option of buffet in the evening/night. I chose to order from the menu as I didn't plan to eat much. The taste was good and service was fine. However, the chicken was a bit more salty and I didn't even get regular water to drink so that was bad. I would go there again if visited Regina next time.
