Project Rationale

We are currently implementing long-term activities in different remote areas situated in different districts of Pakistan. The targeted areas are the poorest and most severely affected areas, where educational facilities are scarce and high illiteracy rates prevail. The project is aimed at establishing adult literacy centres in such areas, whose purpose and function is to enable the learners to read newspaper, write a letter in Urdu and perform every day calculations. This project will help to develop better understanding amongst people regarding their work and also enhance their social status. Literacy projects in these areas will not only benefit the local youth and adults but also develop awareness in other surrounding areas.
