The WHT Leadership and Alumni Programme would like to take this opportunity to thank WHT Alumna, MAheen Iqbal (Pakistan, MSc Environmental Change and Management, Oxford-Weidenfeld and Hoffmann) who has generously contributed funds towards programming and activities for current scholars through the Leadership Programme.
Please look out for the Annual Report to learn more about how this generous and heartfelt contribution will be used.
Maheen was the first Alumni to sign up to trial our new online payment software protected by PayPal. Her donation comes on the heels of the launch of the campaign to endow the Leadership Programme and we look forward to listing her among our supporters and contributors!
Regarding her donation, Maheen said,
“The WHT gave me a generous scholarship that allowed me to pursue my ideal MSc in Environmental Change and Management at Oxford and enabled me to spend a full academic year in the city without worrying about finances or loans. It gave me the chance to attend a prestigious institution and meet bright, motivated change makers from around the world who are likely to remain life long friends. This is a huge gift from the Trust and I chose to give back now that I am working so that I can contribute to similar experiences for future scholars. No matter how big or small our donations are, I believe that collectively they can make a difference!
The PayPal tool is very simple and easy to use and I hope other alumni will also be inspired to give back to the Trust that enabled such a life changing experience for us. “
