Challenge

All children should have equal opportunity to reach their potential and become empowered and contributing members of their communities. DIL's experience over the last 19 years demonstrates that poor quality of education is a key barrier to enrolment and retention across Pakistan. The difference well-trained educators can make in enhancing life chances of the most marginalised children in Pakistan has inspired DIL to provide quality education based on best practices in teaching.

Solution

DIL builds, operates and manages 126 child-friendly school campuses across three provinces of Pakistan, providing education for students from Nursery through Grade 10. DIL school environments are safe spaces for students to learn from trained teachers with appropriate and adequate resources. With well-ventilated classrooms, resource facilities and secure boundary walls, all DIL schools meet cultural and practical demands to best support students' physical, social and emotional well-being.

Long-Term Impact

DIL is committed to providing a girl-friendly education, with a female student enrollment rate of 67% and females comprising nearly 90% of school staff. A DIL education is based on a child-centered approach with an emphasis on gender sensitivity and inclusiveness for all. Girls are encouraged to be active leaders in classroom assignments, co-curricular activities and IT-based projects. DIL provides scholarships for students seeking higher education opportunities.
