Education in Pakistan
Pakistan ranks second highest in the world in the number of children out of school, 25 million. 7 million of these children are of primary school age and will never see the inside of a school. Millions of children are out of school not because their parents do not want them to study, but due to unavailability of schools, teachers and books.
The generous support of concerned individuals like you allows thousands of children to attend school and have an equal opportunity at leading a successful life. Thank you for your generous contributions to sponsor the school. Your support has allowed us to improve the infrastructure of this school and provide a better learning environment for delivering quality education.
Through your support CARE is running CARE High School # 6, Gujranwala and educating 408 students. The school was built in 2002 and since then there has been a considerable increase in enrollment. The high quality of education being taught at the school has also helped to reduce the number of dropouts. Extra-Curricular activities are also regularly organized at the school in order to enhance the student’s skills and improve their confidence.
Together we are transforming lives and building futures but without your continuous support, it just wouldn’t be possible. CARE’s goal is to provide quality education to every child in Pakistan and we are grateful to you for recognizing our efforts and supporting us in our commitment.
