E3 has partnered with Association for the Development of Pakistan (ADP) in establishing a primary school for 100 children at a cluster of fishing villages in Kharo Chan, Sindh Pakistan.
The school will be constructed and operated by ADP's partner NGO, Action for Humanitarian Development (AHD). AHD has been active in the region for more than 8 years. Situated 230km east of Karachi, Kharo Chan is an extremely
low literacy area (surveys show a 26% literacy rate). There are more than 200 children under the age of 10 in the villages without access to education, and the village elders have expressed strong support for the establishment of a
school. 40-50% of the children are expected to enroll, including both boys and girls. ADP will fund the construction and operations of the school for one year (primarily infrastructure related costs and overhead expenses such as teacher
wages) during which AHD will register the school as a branch of a local government school. This will entitle the school to receive funding from the Sindh Education Board to support operational costs for subsequent years.
