MDF Annual Report 5-18-11.pptx - Marshall Direct Fund




Our Mission

To improve

relations between

the west and the

Muslim world by

working together

to alleviate

poverty and

illiteracy via


educational and






2010 donations helped MDF provide:

600 full scholarships

67,200 nutritious lunches

960 uniforms and shoes






An education

directly affects

one’s chance to

earn a living,

allowing one to

provide for their

family. It also offers

an alternative to

joining extremist

groups. MDF

creates those

opportunities. Zahid’s Story

Zahid Khan is one of 5 siblings and an

extended family of 13. With

increased terrorism in their village, he

was forced to discontinue his

education and his father’s shop, the

only source of the family income,

was closed. Luck would bring this

family to an area outside of

Islamabad where starting a life with

so little was incredibly challenging.

They tried to enroll the children in

several schools, but could not pay

the enrollment fees or meet the

entrance standards that require

English and Urdu. Zahid was from a

region that did not speak Urdu and

he did not have enough previous

education to learn English. In

desperation, Zahid’s father enrolled

him in an Islamic religious school, but

after learning about the Marshall

Direct Fund school nearby, they

opted to attend this school instead.

Now Zahid can speak and write Urdu

and he and his siblings are all getting

an education at one of Marshall

Direct Fund’s schools.

Message From The Founder

“Don’t be afraid of opposition. Remember, a kite rises against,

not with the wind.” – Hamilton Wright

The whole world is watching as revolution

spreads in the Middle East and South Asia.

People are demanding change. They want

freedom, jobs, civil liberties, and schools. They

want opportunity for all, not just the privileged

few. This hope for a better life is precisely what

we see with the “everyman”, “everywoman”,

and “everychild” we have the opportunity to

work with in Pakistan.

Drones attacked parts of northwest Pakistan on

average every three days in 2010. As U.S. drones

and Pakistan’s Army attacks northwestern

regions, extremists move to urban areas of

Pakistan to take cover among the masses. There

they have combined forces with Punjabi

extremists to wage war against civilians,

policemen and politicians on the streets of

major cities. In 2010 alone, terrorists murdered

2,913 Pakistani people and injured 5,824. The

extremist groups continue to do most of their

recruitment in the urban areas. The attempted

attack in Times Square by Faisal Shahzad signals

that Pakistani extremist groups’ ambitions may

be growing.

At our annual Aspen fundraiser at Shelly and

Golda Friedstein’s beautiful home last summer,

His Excellency Ambassador Husain Haqqani

said, "What MDF is trying to do…will be the

guarantee of our security. Young people can

be brought up on the idea of hope. Every

young Pakistani child who gets to go to school,

gets an opportunity in life. This child becomes

one more recruit denied to Al Qaeda and the

Taliban." In 2010 we enrolled nearly 300 children

in school, fed them, clothed them, and gave

them hope. We improved relations between

the people of Pakistan and the U.S. via Global

Kid Connect, our partner classroom project that

served over 100 children in the U.S. and

Pakistan. We partnered with local NGO, IKI

Foundation, to strengthen their vocational

education program and will be working

together to launch morel centers in 2011.

The vocational training programs will focus on

female entrepreneurs in the communities in

which we work. We will provide these women

with job skills, business training, and link them to

financial services and markets with which they

will be able to earn income and help lift their

families out of poverty. A percentage of the

profits from the products they retail will be

dedicated to the schools and training centers

to support long-term sustainability.

I wish to take this moment to thank our

supporters. You are game changers in the field

of international security. Your mission is a

challenging one, but you carry on knowing it is

the only way to build a more just and secure

world. As Hamilton Wright reminds us, all

worthwhile achievements take place in a

challenging environment. It is the challenge,

and the human will to overcome it, that makes

great achievements possible.
