A London-based human rights charity will open a free primary school in a poverty-stricken area of Pakistan that aims to give Christian children an education, an alternative to working as bonded laborers and a chance to break free from their family's cycle of poverty.
The British Pakistani Christian Association announced earlier this week that it has purchased land in the town of Kasur, just outside the city of Lahore, and will build the free school to be named after 12-year-old childhood martyr Tim Iqbal Masih, who was shot and killed in 1995 after helping to free thousands of children from bonded labor.

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards equated her controversial Wednesday visit to Georgetown University, the nation's oldest Catholic college, and the fight for so-called reproductive rights with the nation's fight to end slavery and racism.
Richards, whose visit to the Jesuit school came under much scrutiny from the Archdiocese of Washington and the pro-life community, was invited to speak by Georgetown's student-run Lecture Fund and addressed an invite-only room full of pro-choice students.
However, members of the student group Georgetown Right for Life were able to obtain an audio recording of Richard's speech and ensuing question-and-answer session, which was obtained by The Christian Post through Students for Life of America. more >>
