Survival of School in Pakistan
All children have a right to a basic education. In Pakistan this is very difficult for the poor and ‘girls’ especially if they are Christian. This secondary school is under threat because funding this by a minority group is difficult. The boys leave early if the parents are poor as they have to work, the girls have severe restrictions places on them to travel unescorted. This Christian school provides the means to educate them. The school is is need of both repair and provision of fees. The school provides an excellent basis for the children to find work and a survival for the future. Added to this recent bombing of other schools has placed a very heavy burden on the diocese to install security measures which if not done the school will close. Funding in any case runs out in February. Improvements. desks , writing materials, sanitation etc are all in need of improvement. What is £7000 for 700 childern for a whole year?
That works out at 00.83 pence a child per month. Surely a good investment for a future….
Ps the school takes non Christian children too.
