Educate 80 Girls in Pakistan

by Aman Foundation
Vetted

Summary

Zara studied Math in a Teach For Pakistan classroom in Lahore, and was the brightest of the lot. After 8th grade, Zara's parents took the life-altering decision to take her out of school to help out at home and get married. After a brief hiatus from school for a few months, Zara convinced her parents to delay her wedding until completing high school. Zara attributed this to the confidence and skills her TFP teacher instilled in her. Help empower girls like Zara get a quality education in school.

Challenge

Over 50% of Pakistan's population is illiterate, due to socio-economic and political barriers to education equity. TFP aims to change this with the vision: "All children will have access to an education that empowers them to realize their full potential and drive positive change" For a stronger Pakistan, we must ensure that all children receive an education that allows them to improve their life prospects. 60% of students are girls and we seek to empower Pakistani girls through quality education

Solution

To improve the poor quality of education in most government and low-cost private schools, TFP places outstanding graduates for two years as teaching Fellows to work with underprivileged children strengthening numeracy and literacy skills, improving learning levels and developing 21st century skills. Students like Zara now have a better chance for a brighter future. TFP gives students an opportunity to learn and grow at their true potential in order to become empowered members of civil society.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of this movement is forming student and Fellow leaders in the field of education. These leaders will work across all fields to advocate for educational equity. They will be lifelong champions of our cause who will carry our work forward, overcoming the hurdles to quality education in Pakistan.
