The Project: The school is housed at our secure, Peace Ambassadors Pakistan home and office headquarters in Lahore, within a safe, gated community setting. The students are largely the younger siblings and cousins those we educated during the original opening of the project 6 years ago. That school had to be closed due to threats from religious extremists. We were able to open it again once we found a more discrete location.
