In order to further our goal of promoting education in Pakistan for poorer children, we have visited several schools in the area of Rawalpindi. So that we can get an understanding of how the education system is structured here and how we can help.
As in many countries, there are private and public schools. But the differences are immense. There are around 2,000 public and 8,000 private schools in Punjab province. The public schools are overcrowded. There are no hygiene regulations or limits on the sizes of the school classes and the existing school material is limited. Since there are no schools in the vicinity or the families can not pay these, many of the children do not go to school at all.
In consultation with the director of the Madni Academy School, we will launch a fundraiser to help children who live or work in tents. With your help, we can get more children off the "street" and give them access to education.
The donations received go 100% to the children on site. We keep you up to date with current documentation.
