The student comes from very poor family background. His father is a tailor and the mother is a housewife. His family consists of five members including two brothers and sisters. Due to the financial upheavals, his family was not in a position to pay for the educational expenses of all children.
Salman Haider was a bright student who had a passion to get further studies, but whenever he thought of going ahead with his dream, the financial circumstances of his family always came in his way as a big hurdle. Someone told him about Alkhidmat Alfalah Scholarship scheme. He applied for it and luckily was shortlisted after the verification process was over.
“I could see my future shining right in front of my eyes. When I told my parents about the grant of scholarship, they became so delighted that I can’t express in words“, Says Salman Haider recalling that day.
It is said God helps those who help themselves. After getting admission to a college, Salman worked very hard and has completed his intermediate studies with excellent marks.
It is expected that in the future, he would also opt for higher studies and would also join hands with Alkhidmat Alfalah Scholarship Scheme to be a sponsor for the needy and talented students just like the Foundation did for him.
