Challenge

Without proper education, these Afghan children would have no future, and when they return back to their homeland; they will feel alienated and wouldn't be able to earn livelihood or support their families. Since Peshawar Attacks (16th Dec 2014), Afghan community is facing a lot of harassment by the Authorities (police, agencies etc.) Afghan refugees are even caught and put behind bars for several days; for not carrying POR. This situation causes low number of attendance at Peace school.

Solution

The schools are engulfed with properly articulated courses (keeping in mind the Afghan culture) so that these children should always be connected with their Afghan traditions, and through Peace Studies; the motive is to teach children about the concepts of peace and tolerance. Through partial funding, the Lahore pilot school can be maintained by providing salaries to teachers, giving necessary supplies to children and for hygienic environment- Maintaince of infrastructure is also important.

Long-Term Impact

Afghan children who are studying at Peace school, initially when they were enrolled- their self-esteem was low and they lacked confidence. However, after attaining education these children have become more confident, more aware about their surroundings and have started dreaming big of becoming either doctor or engineer someday. These children have understood the value of education and in fact, have started persuading other Afghan children to be part of peace school.
