  • July, 2007 Update
    Keeping Iqbal Masih's dream alive!
    Generations of Broad Meadows Middle school students continue to be inspired
    by Iqbal's dream of freedom, education and a childhod for every child. Back in 1994,
    Iqbal told the Broad Meadows fall about his dream when he attended their school
    in Quincy, Massachusetts (USA) for a day. Iqbal's visit changed everything
    for the Broad Meadows students. On that day, they came face to face with child labor
    and they began immediately to take action against forced abusive child labor.
    In fact, as Iqbal was leaving Broad Meadows Middle School, several students there
    promised they would help him spread the word about child labor and child slavery.
    It's been 12+ years since that meeting of 12 year olds, and year after year students
    at Broad Meadows re-new their promise to take action for children like Iqbal
    all over the world. In addition to establishing "A School for Iqbal" in Pakistan,
    here is an illustrated update on the past two years’ work (especially 2005-2006 & 2006-2007)
    done by Broad Meadows students past and present and their peers in other schools
    as well as their partners (grassroots non-governmental organizations in developing countries).
