This project focuses the primary education and socio-emotional growth of under-served children in Pakistan by providing school supplies, uniforms, scholarships, and social-skill building workshops and well-trained primary school teachers.
In Pakistan, over 6.5 million children are not enrolled in primary schools. The literacy rate dropped by 4%, from 60% to 56% last year in province of Sindh. Out-of-school children face deep-rooted inequalities due to gender, poverty and child labor as well as the lack of facilities in schools and inadequate learning materials. If the issue of school attrition is not addressed urgently, the current generation will add to the existing pool of illiterate youth and continue to exacerbate poverty.
This project is striving for a better educated generation in under-served areas of province of Sindh. The target families are poor and low-income groups with no access to an education facility. The 100 disadvantaged children 6-12 years of age will be provided school supplies, uniforms, scholarship, socio-emotional growth workshops and qualified teachers to ensure hands-on, child-centric learning. By doing so, we reduce illiteracy and attrition, empowering students to become progressive leaders.
This project provides a valuable long-term investment that will facilitate quality educational and socio-emotional growth opportunities for under-served out of school children so that they can escape from the cycle of poverty for themselves, their families and their communities and become better decision makers.
