Girls’ Primary Schools

Though the physical infrastructure of primary schools constructed by the Department of Education of the Government of Sindh is fairly extensive and visible in Tharparkar, the content of teaching capacity, curriculum and learning environment is limited and deficient. In addition to working in close collaboration with the District Education Officer to improve the Government primary schools, Baanhn Beli, with the support of PPAF, operated ten primary schools in Nagarparkar Taluka up to June 2015 and continues to do so even after that date with the participative support of communities. In past years, Baanhn Beli has established and operated several dozens of girls primary schools, especially in locations where there is no Government school and uses both non-formal techniques and formal approaches to enhance literacy and education. Teacher training workshops are conducted regularly.
