We at UMEED EDUCATION would like to extend our deepest gratitude on behalf of the children whose education you have supported, and update you regarding all the ventures we were able to accomplish
with your contributions.
It would be an honor if you could spare your time to give your input and advice so we can fine tune our efforts further.
What we do: As you know, UMEED EDUCATION is an effort to bridge the Poor-Rich divide which affects hundreds of thousands of less privileged school children, both in our villages as well as the slums of our cities.
We provide pre-literacy experiences and scaffold the learning process so that the learners develop a keen, questioning mind and have the life-skills to compete and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with their more privileged contemporaries.
Background: Our work started in 2003 in a small school in Lahore which spread to two more schools, then expanded with the collaboration of WASIL TRUST to the rural areas of District Bahawalnagar in the south of Punjab, and since September, 2016 we have commenced a pilot for the primary government school children in Lahore City and Gujranwala City.
The idea is to share our research and development as far and wide as possible within our limited means to benefit more children .
To make their lives and education ‘worth it’.
THE STORY OF THE LAST 8 MONTHS:-
In September, 2016, Wasil Trust was able to start Umeed Enrichment Programs in Four schools in Lahore, and in March, 2017 in Four schools in Gujranwala. With the support we received from our donors we were able to train the personnel, provide teaching aids and materials, motivate the school administrations and support many infrastructure developments crucial for those schools.
