The south of Pakistan unfortunately is amongst the most deprived areas of the region with many people living below the line of poverty. Parents are unable to send their children to school due to them working long hours shifts and earning less than a pound a day. The ratio of children leaving primary education before secondary and higher education is very high, with the number of girls being lower than that. Cultural barriers leave parents with no choice but to keep their daughters at home preventing them from gaining any education or qualifications.
Through its campaign for girl’s education, ‘Our Girls Our Future’, Minhaj Welfare Foundation has drawn out a plan to build an entire GIRLS EDUCATION COMPLEX for orphan and needy girls. The Educational complex will include a primary school, secondary school and college. It will have the capacity to provide educational opportunities to 5000 girls in five years. It will include accommodation facilities, modern educational equipment, purpose built furniture, library, prayer area, mosque, water and sanitation facilities.
The total cost of the project is estimated to be almost £500,000 with the project being divided into three different phases. Phase one and two of construction work has been completed.
To support this project, please donate your Zakat, Sadqah, and charitable donations towards this unique GIRLS EDUCATION COMPLEX in Khanewal.
