Testimonials

  • I am supporting this project, not only because its for a good cause, but also due to the fact that in life, we must always help those less fortunate than ourselves. I am very keen to see this project with its 3 phases succeed.

    I must admit, I am very excited with the progress of the project, especially as Phase 1, was completed on time, to budget and specifications. You can see from the pictures that it looks fantastic, and the children love it as do the parents, the next 2 phases shall really make a difference not only to the children but the parents, local community and us, who are supporting them. I look forward to helping out in any capacity that I can.

    Mr. Rahim Haji, CEO of Webtrendz
  • What great progress, I recall having a "little chat" with Amir 11 months ago regarding his ideas of how to improve the quality of life for the children and their parents.

    So 11 months on, I can see real progress being made and the smiles on the children's faces is just reward for me, I am very keen to help Amir realise his dream and one that I now share with him and the others that have supported the building of the playground.

    Mr. Chris Meeten, Director at The Uniform Studio
  • I have been involved with this project from its offset, and must commend the work carried out on Phase 1 and its successful completion.

    It is a real pleasure to help those less fortunate, and see the smiles on the children's faces, in such a short period of time, Mr. Niazi and his team have made wonderful strides in achieving the set project goals.

    To see it today as I have, completed, clean, useable and fun, is a testament to all the work, effort and manpower put in by those involved with the project. Well done all.

    Mr. Imran Qayyum
  • I am very proud of my friend Amir Niazi for starting such a project, it shows the type of man he is that, he is willing to dedicate so much time, effort and resources to making this project a success.

    The devotion to the cause shown by Amir to the people of the basti is fantastic to see, but what brought a tear to my eye was the lovely comments and effection showed by the people and children of the basti to Amir, you can see this for yourself in the photos from the ceremony and also the letters written by the basti folk. Well done all, well done!
