IDRF Education Projects
The education system in Pakistan is burdened by several hurdles: poverty, lack of safe learning environments and insufficient infrastructure, etc. prevent poor Pakistani children from achieving their potential. There is also a substantial lack of support for children with disabilities, including deaf children.
Our education projects in Pakistan help children by providing a holistic curriculum that challenges their bodies and minds, while also providing specialized support to deaf children. IDRF is committed to improving the quality of life for orphans and disadvantaged children and youth in Pakistan by providing innovative and enriched programs of literacy to students, to enable them to achieve at their maximum potential.
The Syrian refugee children who have taken shelter reside in this country face a number of challenges to receiving quality education. In particular, during this crisis, poverty and lack of resources prevent children with disabilities from receiving the proper support and education that they need.
Through our innovative programs, children receive the support they need in the form of a community based rehabilitation approach. We provide support in and outside of the classroom, home base care for families, and referrals to specialized centres and therapists, with the aim of improve the lives of these traumatized children and bringing some assistance and hope to their anxious families.
Poverty remains a crippling force in the lives of vulnerable children, hampering their abilities to attend school, participate and achieve their potential.
Our projects seek to close this achievement gap by giving students access to good education, providing school supplies, boarding and clothes, as well as medical care and treatment. Achieving literacy gives them the hope and potential of fulfilling their dreams.
Gazan children’s educational opportunities have been cut drastically short through eight years of a blockade that has choked their local economy and forced the community to depend on external aid to survive. International sanctions and cuts in funding to Gaza schools coupled with the region’s continuous closure has also severely impacted the skill development of teachers.
Our projects aim to alleviate this substantial knowledge deficit by providing essential remedial academic support, important psychological support to improve the mental outlook of traumatized students, enhance their academic performances and provide them with useful skills that will benefit them in their future lives.
Despite having a relatively high literacy rate, Guyana’s educational system still suffers from poor quality education due to inadequately trained staff and a high percentage of educated citizens leaving the country, further depriving the country of well-trained educators.
Through IDRF’s projects that focus on education, providing school supplies, as well as food and health care to orphans and vulnerable children and their families, we are helping them to build stronger foundations for their future.
