Developments in Literacy

On March 4th, 2009, Youth Outreach Developments in Literacy (YOUR DIL) hosted "349," a charity event at Nikki Beach Midtown in New York.

YOUR DIL is a U.S. non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness to help improve education for underprivileged children in Pakistan. The event was attended by 260 young professionals and featured a stellar live performance by Tina Sugandh/Tabla Girl. In attending this event, all patrons of YOUR DIL showed their support for an issue that is becoming more and more of a global concern: the high illiteracy rate in Pakistan. In their speech, the co-heads of the YOUR DIL New York board, Ahmed Hamid and Farhat Umar, highlighted this concern, and stated that funds raised would help YOUR DIL, and its parent DIL, in its mission to eradicate illiteracy in Pakistan through the construction of more schools. It was a very successful night, both in terms of fundraising and the fun quotient; YOUR DIL also has more events planned for 2009 and looks forward to welcoming everyone to help in its mission of raising awareness and funds for this very urgent and very important cause.
