Our friend Bushra Farooqui, tragically passed away while on a trek in Wadi Sameeni on the 30th of August 2015.
Bushra was a true humanitarian and a philanthropist who cared deeply about making a change in lives of the poor children of Baltistan by making education a possibility for them.
She trekked base camp Everest, base camp K2, Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Ararat to raise money for "Inspire - for the love of mountains". The money she raised supports 360 girls in different villages.
The 140 children in Sadpara, for whom she organised teachers and school supplies, are part of “Inspire – for the Love of the Mountains”, the charity she registered last year.
Bushra was raising funds to build two more rooms for the Sadpara pupils and to reach other isolated villages.
“She worked hard for the poor and wanted to bring tourists here to support the children,” said Mr Ghulam Mohammad, the manager of Chogo Grong, Sadpara school, when he last spoke to Bushra on August 21 when she urged him to begin building.
