Our project in Pakistan improved school infrastructure in primary schools across the Vehari District, giving more children the chance to access education.
The Education Situation in Pakistan
25 million children in Pakistan do not get education – of that, three million children will never attend a single lesson. Official education statistics paint a desperate picture, especially for girls. The overall literacy rate is 46%, while only 26% of girls are literate.
In the Vehari District, children often have to sit outside for lessons in extremes of heat, cold and rain. There are no boundary walls around the schools and children, especially girls, are hesitant to attend school for fear of their safety – exemplified by the shooting of Malala Yousafzai.
There are few toilets at schools, which also makes it difficult for girls to attend.
