The local supporters of the GEC Project have constituted themselves in the “GECT”. The members of the GECT have raised substantial funds locally. Due to their efforts, 6 kilometres from the Gojra town centre, the abovementioned 6-acres site has been purchased and a boundary wall around it has been completed.
The SAARC Foundation UK and the GECT are raising the estimated one million pounds sterling from philanthropic sources. With the local population having already donated generously, the Government of Pakistan having limitation of funds for this kind of projects, their best hope is that foreign funding bodies and the generous spirits abroad will come forward to make this humanitarian and much-needed project a reality.
