Challenge

Pakistan is on 3rd Number having more than 2 million debt bonded workers (modern day slavery) Religious minorities & low caste muslims are victims.one of root cause of bonded labor is low literacy rate. Poor & marginalized children have little/No access to education specially in villages and urban slums & village Jadal Shah is one of them. where children of farm workers and fishing community are the most affected. 90% of the school going age children of village are out of school.

Solution

this project will establish a primary school for which community already donated a plot. during the first year 150 children will be enrolled in school and getting free primary education. Uniforms and student's kit will also be provided students. Besides formal education students will be educated on their rights and life skills. For the sustainability of project GRDO will write the Govt: and other donor agencies. Parents will be mobilized to get their kids enrolled in school.

Long-Term Impact

Project will enhance the literacy rate at micro level and will contribute to macro level also. By removing the blockade of education, new venues are opened for children to move for further education and learn alternate livelihood skills. with education & skills these children will become responsible citizens and contribute to alleviation of poverty and slavery. Ultimate result of the project will be a discrimination free, socially, politically, economically and culturally developed society.
