Zindagi Trust Fundraising Concert

You're invited to a unique evening benefiting the Zindagi Trust.   The fund-raising concert takes place Monday, May 23, 2011 from 6:30-11:30pm at Lakeridge High School in Lake Oswego. Enjoy dinner, music and entertainment by Shehzad Roy-- the pop star who founded the Zindagi Trust.

The Trust provides an education for underprivileged children in Pakistan by paying their parents a small amount per day for allowing their children to attend school. Due to political, cultural and economic obstacles, education in Pakistan is in a deplorable condition, with 50% illiteracy and 42 million children, between 5 and 19 years of age, who have dropped out of school.  Most who do so must work to help support their families.  By paying a fee to the parents, the Trust gives their children the ability to stay in school and learn.

To buy tickets to the May 23rd event or to make a donation, visit their website.
