Remembering youth activist Iqbal

The article ''Students Honor a Friend's Memory With a New School,'' June 22, is about 7th graders in Quincy, Mass., raising money to fulfill the dream of Iqbal Masih (a youth activist who deplored child labor conditions in Pakistan and who was later killed) to build a school in Muridke, Pakistan. The dedication of these 7th graders to their friend inspired me and others. I was disappointed that you left no information about how I might be able to help the children in their cause. Where can I and others send a donation, or what can we do to help?
