Lahore: Lina Nasreen Kasuri has sponsored a CCF (Child Care Foundation of Pakistan) non-formal school, Gharibabad II, in District Sheikhupura under the Sponsor A School (SAS) programme to help 35-40 underprivileged children complete their primary level education in the next three years. Lina is the youngest ever SAS sponsor. To raise some funds for this purpose, she organised a bake sale at the Beaconhouse Head Office on February 21, 2014. A stall was set up in the foyer with a CCF backdrop and lots of balloons adding a colourful touch to the event.

Staff members from all departments visited the bake sale and donated generously to support the cause. CE Beaconhouse Mr Kasim Kasuri and Director Gymboree Ms Sophia Kasuri (Lina's parents) were present at the event to support and encourage her. Chairperson Mrs Nasreen Kasuri and Mr Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri also visited the stall and bought some of the delicious brownies and cupcakes. The event helped generate funds for a good cause.

Child Care Foundation of Pakistan (CCF) is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation with a mandate to develop comprehensive strategies to ensure the prevention, elimination and rehabilitation of all forms of child labour in Pakistan.
