DIL Trust UK Orangi School

by Developments In Literacy (DIL) UK


DIL schools provide children, especially girls, in remote marginalized areas with access to quality education. Besides the academic learning, DIL also makes great efforts to provide a holistic school experience to its students through a comprehensive co-curricular program; well-stocked libraries and computer labs; engaging with the parent body; and strong teacher development throughout the year to make this goal achievable.

DIL Junior 4 is running in rented premises. When acquired, the property owner had committed to renovating the existing classrooms, and building additional rooms. Despite repeated requests, he has not delivered on his promises. Thus, students are seated in rooms that do not meet the basic standards. The total number of rooms is also inadequate; there is no dedicated library or computer lab as in other DIL schools, which means that Junior 4 students are at a serious disadvantage.


The acquisition of land and subsequent construction of a purpose built school building will provide adequate space to run a fully equipped primary school with all necessary resources. Students will have access to a fully upgraded IT lab with internet connectivity and a well-stocked library with room for them to sit and read comfortably. Enrollment will be increased to make it more cost effective, as per child cost will go down.

Long-Term Impact

Increased enrollment means more impact in the community and optimal use of resources. The current enrollment is 110; it can grow to 175 once the new building is in place. Students and teachers will be provided a cheerful, welcoming and safe environment, which will lead to better learning and teaching.
