Quality Schools for 25,000 of Pakistan's Poor



DIL schools provide quality education to Pakistan's poorest and equips them with skills for success. These two new schools will house thousands of kids over the next 50 years, most of them girls. At present, millions of Pakistani children do not attend school. Those who attend are taught by poorly trained teachers. School buildings are dilapidated or non-existent and many lack functioning classrooms. As a result, 49% of the population cannot read or write and are stuck in a poverty cycle.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are more than 7.3 million children who are not going to school. The majority are girls and live in rural areas. Existing schools are often neglected and dilapidated. As a result, 50% of children in school cannot read or write a sentence. This project will complete the construction on two partially funded schools, which will house up to 25,000 poor children over the next 50 years. DIL schools are centers for engagement, facilitating growth in adult literacy socio-economic empowerment.

How will this project solve this problem?

DIL has met with the community to ensure we have their support and that there are local qualified female teachers available. The schools have an average of eight classrooms, a computer lab, a library, staff rooms, bathrooms and a kitchen. Each campus provides for a playing area for all age groups. Our schools are built to last at least 50 years and use indigenous materials. Once up and running, DIL's holistic child-centered programs will these children with 21st century skills.

Potential Long Term Impact

DIL schools educate and empower underprivileged students, especially girls. Each school will house state-of-the-art quality education including enhanced curriculum, computer labs, libraries, reading programs and extracurricular activities. In addition, students also have access to technology, vocational training and scholarships, embarking on a path to life-long learning. Over 10,000 students, their families and others in the community will have an opportunity to improve their lives.
