Primary Education Project (PEP) has been providing education in the rural area of Sindh Pakistan for over 18 years. PEP took the initiative for the School Rebuilding Project as a response to floods last year in rural Sindh. But due to lack of minimum school furniture in 50 Rural Primary Schools had affected the learning capacity of children and also make learning difficult for them because they have to sit on the hot muddy ground under the shed to learn and memorize.
Primary Education Project schools faced a lot of damage in 2020 due to the floodwater. New huts were built in 2021 for students to be able to continue their education. At the moment 50 schools are unable to provide a healthy environment because of damaged resources and furniture of school which includes tables, chairs, benches, whiteboards, and storage steel boxes. Presently children have to sit on the muddy ground to learn. Which makes it hard for children to focus and access literacy skills.
The provided resources will help the students to sit on benches (rather than the hot and dirty muddy grounds) and learn through whiteboards (in a healthy environment). Students who study in a positive learning environment are more motivated, engaged, and have a higher overall learning ability. As a result, it helps improve attention, reduces anxiety, and supports the emotional and behavioral regulation of students.
As many of those schools are sustainable the school's furniture will further impact better education in the learning cycle. It will result in 4 to 5 years of comfortable learning. Research shows that a positive school environment increases attendance rates and academic achievement promotes student mental and physical wellbeing. By providing a positive learning culture; children are more likely to acquire higher motivation that leads to wonderful learning outcomes.
