Challenge

Peshawar has suffered due to terrorism. Children 8-12 age dropped out of school due to poverty, punishment and improper teaching, heavy syllabus, unfamiliar medium of instructions and losing interest in education. These children with zero literacy do not find any place in corresponding grades in school. These are considered misfit and pushed to earn money through garbage collection and selling toys/candies on the streets. These children face abuse and street crimes at the hands of criminals.

Solution

Carefully mobilized 50 street children will go through quick learning classrooms of 2hrs daily for 6-months. They will be taught reading, writing and mathematics by female teachers backed by management. At 2 different points, 2 classrooms to be established each with 25 students. Urdu as national & English as international language will be taught with Pashto language as instructions medium. Children attaining grade-3 & 4 level in quick classrooms will resume compatible grades in regular schools.

Long-Term Impact

Project will help promoting education as means to end violence. Parents will demand schools to become equally effective as quick classrooms. The trend of street children going back to school will be followed in the nearby society. Reduction in child abuse and street crimes will occur. The project will help reducing further trauma to affected children at the evil hands. These street children will become productive citizens of the society and possibly carry out similar productive interventions.
