Partnership with Life Givers Pakistan


The photo above features students from Life Givers Pakistan, a nonprofit organization that partnered with Polyphony Lit to provide educational opportunities to Pakistani students from low-income communities.


Life Givers Pakistan plans to build a school and vocational training institute. By adding more professional training courses to their vocational training institute, Life Givers Pakistan will reduce unemployment so that students and their families can become stable financially. If you are interested in supporting Life Givers Pakistan, please support their school and vocational training project by donating through global giving here and here or through the Life Givers Pakistan website. Donations will be used to support the construction of the institute and to provide free educational material for the students who attend.

To help Polyphony Lit continue supporting literary students worldwide in underprivileged communities, including Pakistan, please also donate here or join our Patreon supporters.
