Jalo Jamadar is a small village located in rural Sindh where Mansingh's small community resides. Near that village, stands Jalo Jamadar school, built in a small hut.
The children in this school always have something to look forward to, and the reason of that is having the joy to learn everyday. Living close to their school makes it easy for children, and especially girls to travel by foot to attend school. The school being built in a hut may seem fragmentary, but hearing the clattering noises of children gives the experience of watching a school just like any other. You can guess they are really enjoying when the little giggles fills the classroom when learning the songs for each alphabet. The children are seen imitaing the little actions even when playing after school.
It's rare to have schools in a remote place such as rural Sindh, but having PEP schools has given children the hope that one day they will reap the seeds of education.
Mansingh is delighted to see the children of his community grow. Working as the local area coordinator for the schools in his area makes him very proud. Although Jalo Jamadar school stands in a hut for now, he believes that this very school has the power to create future leaders.
The community of Jalo Jamadar in a few years will have a lot to offer. They have learnt a lot about health, their rights, and the importance of girls education which is how the community has developed along in recent years. The community of Jalo Jamadar is strong in implmenting what they learn for their growth. They have built pit washrooms and are very careful to keep their livestock clean.
Through the efforts of the Women's Empowerment Programme at PEP, many girls have been encouraged to join school. Parents who once were fearful of letting their girls go out, want to send their daughters to school now.
The local teacher of Jalo Jamadar school is cooperative and ever delighted to attend the to the students of the class.
According to Mansingh, this incredible change seemed like a blur vision once. But now he says, if a little school can bring about a hugh change in Mansingh's community, only think of the budding children who will have the power to change the world.
