Build a School!
READ Foundation promises to secure the future for thousands of vulnerable children around the world, by building new schools. However, we can’t do it without you. Donate now.
One study suggests that 22.8 million children in Pakistan aged between 5 and 6 years old, do not attend school. This represents just under half of the total population in this age group.
Our ideas to construct schools in Pakistan, will ensure that we are making education accessible to all children. Every new school build is constructed with the needs of the area in mind. They include classrooms to accommodate hundreds of students, facilities that promote good hygiene, and sanitation in line with core humanitarian standards. Moreover, they represent a safe space for children within a turbulent life.
Our high schools are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities; including IT suites and science laboratories, as well as libraries, to promote the practice of both textbook and practical knowledge.
Through this development and investment in school communities, we have gradually seen an increase in enrolments, a reduction in dropouts and an increase in the number of students graduating.
