Consolidating in Pakistan and then pushing for growth

In 2006, Aim for Change began to work in Pakistan. Ruth James, travelled 2,000 miles around the country in a pick-up truck visiting potential project sites.

Initially Aim for Change provided aid in Bata Mori near Balakot in the mountainous north of Pakistan, where in 2005 a massive earthquake devastated the region (pictured, above).

Many years later, people are still suffering the after-effects of this quake.  

This led Ruth to other areas of the country, where Aim for Change has supported refugees, schools, vocational training and an orphanage.
