Girls Education in Pakistan

IDRF is working to ensure that girls throughout Pakistan have access to adequate education to help them reach their highest potential.

The Situation

Government schools remain the only means of education available for nearly two-thirds of the Pakistani population.

It’s been reported that children do not have access to the highest education level while attending government schools because of students’ limited resources. Additionally, widespread safety and security concerns continue to affect women’s and girls’ access to quality education.

How you can help

Your generous donations help IDRF support girls’ education in Pakistan. We overhauled a government school in Karachi and have rebuilt a model school. Equipped with modern facilities, these students have access to a high quality education as well as enriched extracurricular activities. This school serves as a model school or other government schools in the area.

    Educational Support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children

    Educational Support for Orphans & Vulnerable Children

    Educational Support for Orphans & Vulnerable Children

    We support hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children in Guyana to receive adequate and consistent education throughout the year by assisting with any challenges preventing them from attending school.

    The Situation

    Around the world, orphans and vulnerable children are often neglected and receive little assistance to complete their education. Additionally, these children need support, such as transportation and food, to attend school regularly and reach their potential.

    There have been a rising trend of referrals to our center; 1026 referrals in 2019 compared to 573 referrals in 2014. Challenges that have given rise to high death rates in child cancer patients:

    • Lack of cancer awareness

    • Lack of cancer expertise

    • Lack of enough cancer treatment centers

    • Inability of patients and their families to afford cancer treatment

    In Guyana, economic and financial challenges have pushed many families into poverty. With a poor quality of life, many children do not have access to good quality education.

      How you can help

      Through our program, we assist orphans and vulnerable children by ensuring we alleviate any challenges preventing them from attending school. We provide children with access to school bus transportation every day, stipends to purchase meals and medication. We also ensure that the children receive new school uniforms and seasonal gifts.

        Education for children with disabilities

        Children with disabilities face various forms of discrimination, so IDRF provides long-term education support for children with disabilities in rural Pakistan.

        The Situation

        Children with disabilities face various forms of discrimination, which leads to their exclusion from society and school around the world. While a lack of school access is an issue, an equal concern is the education system’s inability to ensure quality education for children with disabilities.

        How you can help

        Your donations allow us to provide comprehensive educational support for children with disabilities by covering the cost of tuition, uniforms, meals and transportation. IDRF also provides capacity building for teachers and ensures teachers are supported through our program.
