Challenge

Pakistan has made significant progress towards increasing enrollment in primary education. However, reports have shown low retention rates for both girls (44%) and boys (50%) in primary schools . The number of students - especially girls - falls significantly after grade 3. Also, the lack of effective pre-school programs that promote school readiness in rural areas lead many children to drop out because they are unable to adapt to formal schooling.

Solution

Over a 1 year period, BRAC will: Operate 20 Primary Schools; Recruit and train local Pakistani women as teachers & staff; Collaborate with available primary institutions; and Conduct forums to ensure collaboration

Long-Term Impact

- Decreased drop-out rate at the primary school level, especially for girls - A contribution to the achievement of Millennium Development Goal of universal primary education - Reduce poverty and improve quality of life for children in Pakistan
