My mother, Masarrat Kazmi, always had a deep love to assist people in need. Every moment of her life was spent helping out people and she went out of her way to ensure this many times. She contributed a lot to the charitable works even when her health condition was not that good.
Her dream was to provide a better education to underprivileged children. She was adamant that they should also get opportunities and chances in life that other children were receiving. During this course, she met with Mr. Shoeb Mustafa Khan running charitable schools in Aligarh for the underprivileged children and promptly connected with the vision of HOPE Educational and Welfare Trust.
She believed love, patience, and serving food because even a good meal could change a child's life. It takes only one step to lift these children from a world of poverty to a better one.
She was fortunate to find a great team in India who shared the same dream as her. She kept working on this dream until her passing in 2016. Nowadays, the HOPE Educational and welfare trust team in India is continuing with the legacy that my mother started and I wish more people will come forward to help and contribute to the organization like HOPE working for such a noble cause.
