Challenge

Illiteracy is the root cause of all the imaginable ills in the world. About 258 million children and youth are out of schools globally. This includes 22.8 million children aged 5-16, are out-of-school in Pakistan. In the 5-9 age group, 5 million children are not enrolled in schools. Through its "End illiteracy in Pakistan by 2025" project, in the initial phase, Global Education Campaign will open 2000 new or strengthen the existing one-room schools to benefit about 40,000 students.

Solution

The project provides the initial supplies to establish/assist the one-room schools that are either located in the living rooms, verandahs or simply in open spaces, with a green-net covering that is used in the green-house industry. The community provides trained volunteer teachers. After the initial set-up, there is no cost. However, we do maintain the quality and see to it that children are treated kindly and being nurtured as they deserve, till they are enrolled in mainstream education.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate about 5 million out-of-school children in its nonformal schools in Pakistan and provide them an opportunity to become lifelong learners and build skills to create economic opportunities. This will help in promoting gender equality, democracy, and peace.
