Renovation of Education and Construction of School at Suhbat Pur District of Balochistan
As an example since many years when many of school buildings has completed their ages or destroyed during natural disasters in Balochistan, the proposed school has been using teachers homes open space for continuing educational classes, where the school enrolment has since gone down from 370 students to about 80 currently. The major constraint for children and parents is that the most nearby primary schools are between the walking distances of 6 and 7 kms or 1 hour respectively. The school pass rate has been unsatisfactory due various reasons like unavailbity of educational equipments, books, desks, drinking water, latrine, hand washing places etc.
Women Development & Community Organization WDCO has initiated to improve Infrastructure of Govt. Girls Schools in Balochistan, Pakistan. The thrust of WDCO is to assist the govt. girl’s school in rehabilitating infrastructure. WDCOs main concern is the realization of sustainable development in which the children, teachers and the community are involved in positive activities that will ensure socio-economic welfare in the entire locality and ensure proper learning environment by providing habitable accommodation. It is also in a way assisting Government attention to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by providing ablution facilities at the schools. The aim of this project is peaceful co-existence and development in which everyone participate equally and effectively in problem and solution identification and where local communities, governments and other developmental bodies facilitate and carry out skills transfer to the younger generation who are not fortunate enough to be afforded or even to go to school.
WDCO has succeeded to identify three govt. girls’ schools for renovation and infrastructure rehabilitation at Suhbat pur district of Balochistan. This can provide support to involve girls in education to reduce poor literacy rate in Balochistan. Regarding our previous interventions we observed that the local community and leadership have been very supportive and are doing their part by providing other materials like labor etc.
