At RizScholars we try to stay in touch with the scholars as often as possible to monitor their progress.
Every alternate year, our admin officer Sajid Mehmood travels across Pakistan visiting as many scholars as possible at their Universities. The meetings have been very useful for both the students and the organization since it allows us to understand their circumstances better and provide further help in required areas. Personally connecting with our scholars has yielded fruitful results in the year 2010-2011 as well.
This year, Sajid has so far visited students in Lahore, Faisalabad, Taxila and Abbottabad. During the meetings, the scholars were asked to fill out the survey forms to update their status and also suggest improvement methods to the organization. The response was very positive, some students from the flood effected areas have requested an increase in their scholarship funding to cope with their bills and family circumstances. For this purpose we request you to donate generously and give Zakat so we can provide further assistance to especially the students belonging to flood effected areas. The scholars continuously express their gratitude for their scholarships by writing letters to inform us that they are whole-heartedly committed to achieving higher education and bridging the gap between poverty and professional standing in the society.
