These Are the Heroes with the Passion to Transform Their Communities
We know that education plays an essential role in the development of any nation. Unfortunately, according to the recent data, Pakistan has the second-highest number of children (22.8 million – aged 5-16 years) not attending any school. Gender-wise, 52% of the poorest children (58% girls) are out of school, and in Balochistan, 78% of girls haven’t seen a school. The literacy rate is in dire need of improvement in Pakistan. It is important to improve the rate of pre-primary education as it has high positive impacts on primary school enrolment, survival and future learning.
Al-Qalam Student support trust aims to reduce the number of out-of-school children and support education at pre-primary, primary and secondary levels. AL-Qalam Student Support, with the help of its donors are sponsoring children from disadvantaged backgrounds in regards to school fee, textbooks, stationery, uniforms and at times some stipends to help them continue their education and achieve their full potential in life. This is a key aspect in minimising the attrition rate of students from the schools. Our team is fostering the importance of children’s education to break the
“Cycle of disadvantaged families”
Our aim is to support education for those in the greatest danger of being left behind. We reiterate the notion “Every child has the right to an equitable chance in life” A better future for our disadvantaged communities…
Let me recall one of the sayings of our Quid, Muhammad Ali Jinnah
“Pakistan is proud of her youth, particularly the students, who are nation builders of tomorrow. They must fully equip themselves by discipline, education, and training for the arduous task lying ahead of them”
Your support towards a child’s education will have a lasting effect for generations to come.
Let’s create opportunities for those in need, let’s make a difference today,
