THE STORY:

We are reaching out for your support in helping us build a the second phase secondary school in one of the most impoverished areas of Karachi, Pakistan. With the help of The Citizens Foundation (TCF), the B.V.S. Alumni Association has already completed the construction of a primary school (KG to grade 5) in Karachi for those children who would otherwise not have the opportunity for an education. This school will be dedicated to the memory of to Mrs. Deena Mistri.

Mrs. Mistri dedicated 62 years of her life to the cause of education, 55 of those years were spent at the B.V.S. Parsi High School in Karachi.

In Pakistan, only 56% of children have minimal access to formal education and the remaining will never see the inside of a school. A mere 2.4% of the country's GDP is currently being spent on education. Its effects ripple through the state education system which is crumbling.

2.3% of government primary schools have no drinking water, 41% no toilets, 56% no electricity and 7% have no building whatsoever. Teacher absenteeism is soaring and 8% of government schools are 'non-functional' which means they exist only on paper.

Sadly, 50% of children drop-out before completing primary education. This has meant that for many people, the only chance of educating their children is to place them in informal schools which are often wholly inadequate to equip children for modern life in a civil society.
