More than 10 million children in Pakistan are not going to school due to poverty. In the rural and semi urban areas of Punjab Province, it is hard for one third of the children to continue education due to poor economic conditions. Despite having good grades and a passion for education, the children are stopped from going to school or colleges and are forced to work , which leads to the increase in child labor. The situation in Toba Tek Singh city is not different from the rest of Punjab.


Society for Human Development is encouraging the intelligent yet needy (school and college going) students through several scholarships, which supports them to continue their education. The intervention also encourage the parents, to send their children to school and college and not to force them to leave. With this project SHD Pakistan wishes to help 100 school and college going children through scholarships. The scholarships will cover the expenditures which occur during their study tenure.
