I haven’t been able to post much due to a very hectic-femininish-technical-work that made me work almost day & night (of course days in the office and nights into the creation of a website) that initially had the scope of two static pages.

Many thanks to RAMBLER for sharing the work load of that website and Em for his never ending technical support and free of cost advices =D

Funny part of working on this website was that I wasn’t paid off a single penny for that. Instead I had to invest for the purchasing the WEB HOSTING (that was reimbursed). With no offence Mr. Bandukda should be blamed for emotional-blackmailing-for-being-a-volunteer and convincing us to work for this sacred cause (I am still finding the sacred instinct though)

Last but not least The Citizens Foundation, we actually worked for. Here is a small into to them:

TCF is a professionally managed, non-profit organization set up in 1995 by a group of citizens concerned with the dismal state of education in Pakistan. It is now one of Pakistanโ€™s leading organizations in the field of formal education. As of August 2008 TCF has established 530 purpose-built school units nationwide with an enrollment of about 65,000 students. TCF encourages gender diversity by ensuring 50% female enrolment and a full female faculty over 3,550 members.

The above intro has been copied from The Pool garden::About TCF:: Page ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way, a confusion is yet to be clarified whether TCF charge FEES to the students or not. People living in the outskirts of the big cities, aren’t being paid off much and most of them are living in a very poor lifestyle. To me, opening up these schools in the outskirts isn’t just enough to become HERO. Keeping in view the amount of donations TCF has been receiving, they should keep it literally FREE making sure that the Quality of Education does not suffer by any means. I hope any of the TCF Personnel could clarify all this to me.

Thanks to Sanober and Romana, who actually asked me to revamp the web layout a number of times, regardless of how much effort would that require. I don’t know whether they considered all the efforts as granted. Since they didn’t have to PAY for these Changes [no ๐Ÿ™ CRF]
they had no concern how would I manage.

Thanks to Rambler (again) who has been listening to all my complains and unpleasant remarks during the making of this website. And Thanks to Mr. Bandukda, for making my mind for not volunteering ever & ever.

    Dude I didn’t do much and also I didn’t have to put up with change requests after every one hour!(backend has few advantages;-)). Some good has come out of the whole experience. Thanks to you and Em i’ve had a taste of php:). Btw lunch is still left..i hope we go somewhere nice;-). And yes i’m not planning on doing freelancing for ‘ free’ anymore:)
    And if somebody needed to realise the effort put up by jingoist, he spent his valentine’s at office working:-P:-D

    @the seeker..

    I don’t work at TCF and never met any of those lovely children. I actually worked for TCF for an event that had some paintings to be sold out. The funds raised through those paintings went to TCF. Rest is I think i have already mentioned….
