A CHALLENGE LIKE NO OTHER!
Drive a rickshaw across 300 miles of rural Pakistan and then hand it over to a needy family for their income generation.
Explore the sights and sounds of the centuries-old rich culture of Sindh and the civilisation of the Indus Valley. Their history has given them strong traditions, customs, folklore, a distinct lifestyle and their own language called Sindhi.
Riding an auto rickshaw is an awesome way to travel that is not only fun but it gives a unique way to get a taste of local life. It will also enable you to meet local villagers and experience the traditional festivals with bull runs and Sindhi Malakhra (an ancient Sindhi form of wrestling popular in Pakistan and India, which dates back 5,000 years).
Dates: 1st to 8th October 2022
Registration Fee: £400 – This includes all costs within Pakistan (hotels, food, accommodation and airport transfers).
Fundraising Target: £1,200 individually (or £3,600 as a group of three). This will be used to fund the purchase of a rickshaw and support our Children of the World campaign.
What’s Not Included: International UK-Pakistan return flights, Visa Fees, PCR test if required.
Funds raised will go towards providing a means of income generation to a needy family through the provision of a rickshaw as well as supporting our education projects as part of our Children of the World campaign.
At Muslim Charity we endeavour to lift people out of poverty for good, so the idea behind the rickshaw project is to give a needy family a means of earning so that children can go to school and they can have a better life with more opportunities. In the past year (2020-2021) we have handed over 12 three-wheeler vehicles in Pakistan and Bangladesh for different enterprises including pick and drop services, food trucks or modified to use as vans for fruit-sellers.
Funds raised will also support the education initiatives under our Children of the World campaign whereby we renovate primary schools in the developing world and equip them with improved infrastructure to better cater for the students.
