Schools and entire community of Marani District have a serious shortage of reading materials. Most of the schools in the district are day schools with no libraries. Yet the students in these schools are expected to compete with their counterparts in national and provincial schools well endowed with library facilities and due to high poverty levels, parents cannot afford to provide required learning materials for their children.


The project will purchase land, construct the library and equip it with chairs, shelves, computers, school books, reproductive health reading materials and other education materials .There will be two librarians to provide services to the pupils and students to improve education standards among the vulnerable children.The children will also be subjected to basic computer training.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve the quality of education among 1000 orphans and vulnerable children to help them access employment and enhance their living standard.
