Early childhood education

By Emma Jehle | Marketing Assistant

Early childhood education is an important step in ensuring academic success later in life. It improves primary school performance, raises math and language abilities, sharpens thinking and attention skills and it lowers school drop out rates. At the pre-primary level, BRAC targets underprivileged children to prepare them for mainstream primary school entry. Students who graduate from the BRAC model of pre-primary education, do better on secondary school entrance examinations that their mainstream school system counterparts.

BRAC Pakistan initiated its eduation program in 2009 on a pilot basis, using BRAC's success in Bangladesh in this field by establishing pre-primary and primary schools in order to promote greater access to eduation in the country and reduce the drop-out rate from government schools. Through support from our partners, BRAC Pakistan opened 20 pre-primary schools in the Haripur district of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province (KPK). A total of 50 pre-primary schools in Haripur have been completed and 1,454 students have graduated.

BRAC USA still needs your support to provide school supplies to children and training to teachers! Please make a contribution and tell your friends and family about this important project!
