In Punjab, almost half of the children are out of school according to ASER latest report of 2015. The report further disclosed that there are 28 million children in Punjab between the ages of 5-16, of which 13 million or 47% are not in school. The situation is even worse for females where 47% of the females have never been to school as compared to 28% of the males.
According to ASER report of 2015, representing educational status in Pakistan 18% of the schools in Punjab remains in an “un-satisfactory” condition. 1 out of every four schools is without electricity, 1 out of every 20 schools is without drinking water, 1 out of every four schools is missing the basic facility of toilet.
According to the need assessment conducted by Human Appeal International Pakistan in Tehsil Gujar Khan of District Rawalpindi, 91% of the schools reported to lack teaching aids & 52% lacking students’ furniture.
