NGOs Take Edge over Government in Educating People


The Alkhidmat, NAZ, The NGO Resource Centre and Green Crescent have been declared to be the best among all the Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) as they are performing well to smash the current hurdles of Education in KPK, SINDH and Balochistan provinces.

According to UNICEF, The Alkhidmat, a countrywide NGO, is running almost 100 non-formal schools in small villages of Sindh, Balochistan and KPK Provinces, where not merely girls but adult women are admitted for basic primary education.

In Sindh province, NAZ, a Khairpur-based NGO, is running 50 formal and non-formal girls' schools in the city's outskirts; the NGO Resource Center, a Karachi-based organisation, is operating scores of girls' schools while Green Crescent, another Karachi-based NGO, is running twenty non-formal schools for girls in villages throughout the province. In Punjab, Al-Ghazali Education Trust, a Lahore-based organization, is operating some 200 formal and non-formal schools, mostly for girls and women, all over the province.

Even though there is a lack of concern on the part of government to promote girls' education, some religious groups, political parties and NGOs are working actively to do so despite all barriers which really deserve to be saluted and acknowledged.
