Celebrating WEIF's First Project
WEIF's first project, the Rahimabad School in Gilgit-Balistan, Pakistan, was honoured on May 24, 2016 by a visit from Princess Zahra and Prince Rahim Aga Khan. This is a proud moment for WEIF and reflects the sustainable change that we have made in Gilgit-Balistan through access to education. In 2006, through the generous support of our donors, Alberta's Wild Rose Foundation, and the communities of Rahimabad, WEIF facilitated the construction of the first self-sustaining school in Gilgit-Baltistan.
