More than six million children are out of school in Pakistan’s Sindh province, and more than half of them are girls.
The Government of Sindh struggles with substandard public school facilities, a lack of teachers, and low coordination between communities and school administration that keeps children—especially girls—from attending school.
Blumont’s USAID-funded Sindh Community Mobilization Program is improving education in government schools by getting communities and the private sector involved in school reform. By coordinating the rehabilitation and construction of state-of-the-art schools, empowering communities, and facilitating public-private partnerships to manage schools and contribute resources, Blumont is improving education opportunities in Sindh. Change is happening school by school, and thousands of girls and boys are enrolling.
Parents, teachers, communities and most importantly students are reaping the benefits of improved public education. Hear from a teacher and two of her students on how Blumont and USAID have made their schools a better place to learn:
