About

Uneducated girls have almost no chance to escape the cycle of poverty for them, their families and their communities. We have committed to support the education of 60 girls through secondary school, providing them the opportunity to rise out of poverty, improving their families' health, economic status, and well-being. 

Transportation is a big concern in the remote regions of Pakistan. For students living in the villages of Maira, Thirchak, Chakki Rangpur, Dharyala Kahoon, the nearest secondary school is about 20 kilometers away. Due to high transportation costs and lack of access to reliable transport, it is difficult for girls to continue with their education. It also places a financial strain on families who seek to send their girls to school. This project provides transportation as well as the cost of registration and required exams. We are able to complete our project thanks to a partnership with Pakistan-based NGO Bedari.
