Astronomy for Underprivileged Children

Update posted by Aamna Saleem On Jan 06, 2020

We would like to thank all our generous donors who contributed to our cause and helped us share immersive, astronomical experiences with 3200 underprivileged children, including students from government schools who have never seen been taught astronomy, seen through a telescope, or seen a planetarium before in their lives, at Lahore Science Mela 2019.

Attached are some highlights and testimonials from the event.

Thank you so much!

Hello everyone!


We thank our backers who have contributed already. We urge the rest of you to please donate as low as one pound! We are running out of time to finish the planetarium and we really don't want to disappoint the thousands of young children from low-income backgrounds who will be joining us at Lahore Science Mela!


TIA!
