Basic Problems and Needs:
In essence, the role of primary education is to ensure the broad-based development of pupils. This in turn means ensuring development of their cognitive, social, emotional, cultural and physical skills to the best of their abilities preparing them for their further scholastic career. As you, may have witnessed firsthand during your visit to some of the government run primary schools in Sindh, many government schools across Pakistan unfortunately lack some of the most basic facilities; the dearth of which stagnates the grooming and nourishing of these pupils. The government though has strived hard to overcome these issues but the stagnancy of funds proves to be the primary hurdle in creating and providing the said facilities at these schools. This finance dearth fails to allow appreciable room for the proper nourishment and grooming of the students in question.
Whilst Global Warming is an international concern, tropical regions such as Pakistan, suffer soaring temperatures specially during summer. It’s really painful to see such young kids weathering these extreme conditions just to earn as basic a right as Primary Education.SEEMA ZAHID – HEAD OF PRIMARY SCHOOLS, SINDH
Why Not Getting Enrollments:
As a starter, schools of this particular region lack some of the most basic necessities in boundary walls, cleaner maintained restrooms, basic furniture, lack of clean drinking water deteriorating/unsafe building structures and shortage of electricity. It is of critical importance to provide these fundamental facilities to these innocent affected to build a good creative learning environment. The situation also greatly contributes to the dearth of fresh enrollments. These schools generally lack clean drinking water and power supply while loose electric connections and the deplorable condition of water tanks add to the misery. It’s only barely imaginable how this water is being consumed by these innocent pupils? Due to lack of finances only a single electricity connection was established, leaving the remainder of the school buildings to suffer. All buildings require maintenance of electric wires.
Everything regarding primary school education is required. There are hardly any desks and chairs. We have some furniture but most of it either needs to be repaired or replaced. I think the furniture requirements should be specific. The nursery & kindergarten class furniture needs to be distinct when compared to the elder classes. You may well see that the provided chairs are not suitable for schooling; but rather for domestic use. To make matters worse, there are no separate restrooms for teachers as the rest rooms are common.REHANA YASMEEN – GOVERNMENT SCHOOL TEACHER
A Student’s Statement!
While attending my class, a stone fell down from the roof injuring my forehead.
It is through play that children organize and makes sense of the world. Play also helps children work through tensions in their lives. Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play is important to healthy brain development. It is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them. And yes, games play an important role in the lives of children as they enter school. Without play and recreational activities it is very difficult to ensure upbringing of healthy minds and bodies of pupils. Unfortunately! We do not have sufficient funds to buy sports goods
In recent years, education all over the world has shifted heavily towards the common core subjects of reading and math, but what about arts? Although some may regard art education as a luxury, these simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up. But we have no art & fun related materials in colors, pencils, markers and charts etc.
If we provide these facilities at the schools there can be a major turnaround in enrollment and quality education. According to recent surveys, researches have noticed that Sindh is declining in education. If the quality of education could be improved at these schools, we could build a responsible futuristic society.
I honestly believe that by donating you can save a life today to save yours’ tomorrow. We really do not know what tomorrow brings and our efforts as donor today can save a child from becoming a criminal tomorrow.
