â€œIf every Pakistani-American Doctor gives scholarship to a talented boy or girl in Pakistan to become a doctor; And every Engineer, Lawyer, Businessperson, and persons in other fields do the same, there will be an incredible change in the fortunes of Pakistan By the Grace of God through these Sadaqae Jariah efforts. We see in Pakistan that there is a boy working in mechanic shop or pushing rickshaw cart, but then due to the God given talents and abilities also top in the examination results of 10th and 12 Grades. We at ALFalah Scholarship Scheme pick up these children, provide them scholarships, so as to make them doctors, engineers, businesspersons, lawyers, journalists, and so on.â€
