SKT WELFARE IN COLLABORATION WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS IS PLEASED TO PRESENT THE NATIONAL PAKISTANI SOCIETIES CHARITY TREK. TAKE PART IN A TREK OF A LIFETIME TO SUPPORT THE WATER CRISIS IN PAKISTAN!

Water security remains a major threat in Pakistan. Currently in Pakistan, 21 million people live without access to clean water close to their homes. Children are being deprived of education due to having to walk far each day to collect water for their families. They are often collecting from unsafe water sources, resulting in the transmission of waterborne diseases. Entire communities in Pakistan have little choice but to suffer the effects of waterborne diseases because they have no other options when it comes to drinking water. Sadly, 250,000 children per year do not live to see their fifth birthdays, due to waterborne diseases. You can help us change this and make a difference!

The University of Leeds Pakistani Society has united Pakistani societies across the UK to initiate the National Pakistani Societies Charity Trek. Pakistani Societies across the UK will be hiking together to collectively raise funds that will go directly towards providing clean water to communities in Pakistan. We believe that together, we can make a great impact. We are working with SKT welfare on this great cause and hope that you can support us. It was narrated that Sa’d bin Ubadah asked  'O Messenger of Allah, what charity is best?' He (PBUH) said: 'Giving water to drink.' Sunan Ibn Majah 3684.

With the funds raised we aim to install water filtration plants, which have the capacity to filter one thousand litres of water per day.  A solar powered plant costs £10,000 and we hope to install as many as possible with your help Insha’Allah. Each plant will benefit a community of up to 9,000 people in need of clean water. Help us to provide clean water to those in need by donating and sharing this page. Please remember that no donation is too small and as the Prophet (PBUH) said ‘giving charity does not diminish one’s wealth’. With your donations we can Insha’Allah take a step closer towards solving Pakistan’s water crisis.

SKT WELFARE WATER FILTRATION PROJECTS

IN PAKISTAN, THE ENTIRE POPULATION IS EITHER EXPOSED TO WATERBORNE DISEASES, OR SUFFERS THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEM

Drinking contaminated water is the cause of around 40% of all deaths in Pakistan. 

In Pakistan, rural communities suffer the most from contaminated water, so we have constructed water purification plants in impoverished areas to end the problem.

In water filtration plants, complex technology is used to clean and decontaminate dirty and unsafe water, resulting in cleaner, safer drinking water. An entire village of 5,000 people receives clean water every single day from a water filtration plant!

By providing a solar-driven filtration plant for Pakistan, you are helping the environment and helping the community.

Solar-powered water filtration plants cost £10,000. You can join your university team to help provide safe drinking water to Pakistan.

FAQ’S

What is the cost of the trip?

The registration fee is £30pp and covers coach travel, insurance and guides. You can pay your registration fee via www.sktwelfare.org/admin-costs/.

Where are the collection points?

Each University will have its own collection point. They will be updated on this page once confirmed

Do I need to fundraise?

We don’t have a set minimum fundraising target, but this is a team challenge and everyone who is registered must join a university fundraising team. You can set up your page via https://givebrite.com/paksoc-unitrek.

Where does all the money raised go?

SKT Welfare has a 100% donation policy which means everything we receive from your fundraising will go towards building water filtration plants in Pakistan.

What happens on the day?

You will be collected from your pick-up point in a coach which will take you to the starting point in the Peak District. Upon arrival you will complete registration and begin your trek. You will be provided with a more detailed itinerary on the day as well as the map of your route.

You will have several hours to complete the circular walk and check in at the registration point upon completion. All participants will be expected to arrive back at the registration point by 5pm at the latest and coaches will start leaving from 5:30pm.

What happens if I am late?

Timekeeping is very important. It is each participants responsibility to ensure they are on time to be collected from their pick-up point. Lateness can result in the coach leaving without you as it is unfair for everyone to wait, not to mention it will also limit walking time for the group.

What should I wear for the hike?

We are trekking in a hazardous mountain environment where we could be exposed to extremes of weather at any time so be prepared for all quickly changing conditions and temperatures. We recommend you pack:

  • A waterproof jacket and trousers
  • A warm hat
  • Gloves
  • Rucksack
  • Polyester, fleece or woollen trousers and tops (no jeans)
  • Walking boots (three season)
  • Thermal base later & fleece top (not cotton) + a spare
  • Waterbottle
  • Lunch & spare food
  • Battery pack to charge mobile phones
How can I register?

You can register via this link.

How do I pay my registration fee?

You can pay your registration fee via www.sktwelfare.org/admin-costs/. You will need to add the unique reference number in your application form to confirm your space on the trek.
