I-Learn Girls Education

Girls get least encouragement to go to schools and get a formal education in Quetta city of Balochistan province in Pakistan. It is due to cultural barriers that girls have always limited choices for their career as they remain within boundary walls. In their childhood, they are treated as a servant and after a marriage, as salves.

Observations suggest that parents who send their girls to schools tend to drop them off after a while due to poor academic results because girls get least assistance from illiterate poor parents. Girls need to be supported with learning through after school tuition, counselling and coaching to retain schooling. Their good school results can motivate parents for girls education. To create support mechanism for poor girls in one of the squatters of Quetta, Dar ul Sukun has established a small tuition center for girls’ leaning and growth.
