Increase Girls' Access to Education in Pakistan

Summary

Girls Education International supports access to education for girls in various rural Pakistani villages, including secondary school, participation in self-growth and other extra-curricular (out-of-the-classroom) learning experiences, vocational training, exposure trips, and annual alumni celebrations. We partner with Bedari, a nonprofit based in Pakistan, to cover the costs associated with these important and holistic educational activities.

Challenge

Getting to school and having access to out-of-school educational experiences can be very challenging for girls in remote villages in Pakistan. Transportation is a big concern, as high costs limit access to reliable and safe transportation from rural villages to towns with secondary schools, making it difficult for girls to continue with their education. It also places a financial strain on families who seek to send their girls to school.

Solution

This project provides funding to cover the cost of transportation and other education-related expenses, including supporting girls' self-growth through additional learning opportunities. By partnering with Bedari, we ensure access to safe transportation for girls living in rural villages in Chakwal District so that they can attend secondary school and opportunities to learn beyond their school walls. This is an ongoing project and we are committed to supporting the girls through high school.

Long-Term Impact

A girl who completes secondary education is less likely to experience child marriage and more likely to be empowered as a decision-maker in her own life. She is also more prepared to support -- and advocate for -- the health, well-being, and education of her future children and other members of her community. By supporting girls' education, this project will profoundly impact not only the lives of the girls but also their families and communities.
