We eventually want to expand the school to class 12 teaching and also find a permanent building to move the school to, with dorms to house the children who study there.
(PRWeb UK) September 8, 2010
House of Pearl Fashion has already been recognised for its sterling contribution to Soham For Kids, a non-profit that provides education and housing for children in Hyderabad, India.
In June the first 75 children were welcomed into the makeshift Soham For Kids school in Mallapur, Hyderabad. Now Faiza Seth, whose father-in-law Deepak Seth founded House of Pearl, has revealed how she is helping to expand the school to educate 120 children from kindergarten to 5th grade and eventually locate a new building to teach youngsters up to class 12.
Faiza, who has a strong ambassadorial role with the various House of Pearl charities, said: “House of Pearl wants to make a difference and hopefully our school will give young orphans in India that opportunity.
“We eventually want to expand the school to class 12 teaching and also find a permanent building to move the school to, with dorms to house the children who study there.”
“We firmly believe that education is the ingredient that will help lift people out of poverty and misery.”
House of Pearl has teamed up with the Hope Foundation, which manages the day-to-day running of the Soham For Kids school. The Hope Foundation has vast experience in educating children and young adults in India.
Faiza is heavily involved in the House of Pearl’s growing portfolio of charitable and philanthropic projects.
The company supports the Arpan Education, a non-profit committed to the education and personal development of children in New Delhi. Arpan was launched in 2006 to support underprivileged youngsters and the school system by helping disadvantaged children to cope with the schoolwork.
House of Pearl has manufacturing operations across Asia including in India, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Indonesia. It also has subsidiaries in other countries including across Europe, Canada and the USA and produces clothes for High Street giants such as Gap and Next.
Faiza is also the co-founder and chief executive of Casa Forma, an interior design, property development, property search and bespoke furniture-manufacturing firm. As head of Casa Forma, she oversees £50million worth of property, helps clients in the purchase and sale of prime London homes and handles Casa Forma's interior design marketing efforts.
Earlier this year Faiza, who was born in Hyderabad, was honoured with the Cambridge Who’s Who award for displaying dedication, leadership and excellence in property development/interior design and non-profit leadership.
