Summary

In Sindh, many of the poorest are the marginalized minority groups living in rural areas. The Primary Education Project targets these communities and seeks to empower and strengthen them by building sustainable and effective schools! Our teaching methodology was designed UNIQUELY for these communities that society has cast aside. Our local teachers not only teach standard subjects but peace education, disaster risk reduction, women's empowerment, sanitation, and financial education as well!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Almost half of the children in Sindh are not in the classroom;only 35% of girls are.Only 57% of males in Sindh are literate;only 20% of females are.Rural areas suffer greatly due to a lack of accessibility to quality schools.Girls are the last to have this opportunity due to cultural traditions.Religious tensions also prohibit many minorities from receiving an education.It is only through peace and gender equality education that these communities are able to be reconciled and empowered.

How will this project solve this problem?

PEP focuses on female and minority enrollment to serve this neglected population by providing schools in their own villages with baselines for girls' enrollment. Our teaching methodology focuses on building confidence (through role plays and public speaking), teaching English (which gives minority groups the status they lack for job opportunities), and enabling families to be change agents in their communities (through Savings' Groups, Community Boards, and School Management Committees).

Potential Long Term Impact

PEP is currently working in 84 villages with 106 teachers. We are teaching almost 5,000 children and indirectly benefitting over 34,000 people in Sindh! Sustainability of schools is one of the priorities of PEP and many efforts have been made to ensure the long-term establishment of our schools. Communities are seeing changes through their access to clean water, greater sanitation, and electricity because of the empowerment of Community Citizen Boards and PEP efforts to strengthen confidence.
