Challenge

Jacobabad, Sindh is largely populated by the Baloch tribe whose misfortunes clash sharply with more affluent surrounding areas. With a female literacy rate of only 22.3%, The scarcity of schools combined with conservative local attitudes toward female mobility has terrible consequences for an adolescent girl in Jacobabad: if there is no school in her village, she is forced to drop out.

Solution

FRDP Pakistan currently running 7 schools in Jacobabad where 2300 students getting free Education, out the 30% students are girls and they need transport to reach home. FRDP Pakistan. FRDP currently providing the transport facility to some students, because of the less funds available, we are expecting to arrange more buses to provide the free transport to the girls so they can easily come and get the free education.

Long-Term Impact

Until schools become available in all villages, FRDP Pakistan aims to support girls at this transitional stage, leading the way in establishing female education as a norm rather than an anomaly. By supporting female education, the program mitigates gender imbalances, bolster individual self-esteem and foster a greater, more active role for women in society. The impacts of this program are far-reaching, reverberating across the economy and the futures of women and their children.
