Summary

Established in the year 1985 in peri-urban areas of Lahore, 3 formal and 27 informal community outreach schools of Fatima Memorial Hospital are providing education to 1850 underprivileged students. Of the enrolled students, the enrollment of girls is only 35%, reflecting the gender discrimination in the society. Hence, this project aims to provide equal educational opportunities to girls by providing them with primary/secondary education and increase their enrollment level to 50%.

Challenge

Education is a fundamental right for all. However, in Pakistan it still remains a distant dream for most. Over 22.84 million children in Pakistan are out of school (second highest in the world) and in primary to higher secondary level, 49% of the girls are out of school compared to 40% of the boys. This is because of the cultural stigma attached to the education of girls, especially in underprivileged areas of the country. The current literacy ratio is 70:48 for males to females respectively.

Solution

While the Pakistan government has legislated for education for all, education remains drastically under-funded at 2.4% of GDP, a decrease from 2.7% in the preceding year - despite a government commitment of 4% . Sponsoring a girl's education and providing her with uniform, course books and an added monetary incentive for parents will encourage parents to send them to school and ensure their continued presence there, hence uplifting the state of the entire community.

Long-Term Impact

"Continuing Malala's Dream - Educating Girls in Pakistan" aims to increase the literacy rate of girls from 48% to 80%.The project further aims to highlight the importance of educating the girl child to the masses and bring about a cultural change whereby the role of future educated mothers is realized in making a better impact on health, child mortality and other key economic and social indicators.
