PEP has been working to provide quality education to Bharu Thakur community since 2005. The landlord of this community shared that, he and his extended family had come from India 32 years ago and this was the first time his community had received any support since arrival in Pakistan. When the floods in 2006 had destroyed the village school, the landlord with the help of PEP took efforts in rebuilding the school in a hut. The Bharu Thakur community was very determined to keep continuing the education of the children.
For many years, this school had proved to be deeply rooted in education, and therefore PEP was delighted to open a new school building in their village. Bharu Thakur community were given a new school building in June 2014. The teacher, children and parents are happy to have a permanent building which is very light and airy and gives the message to all visitors that the community has achieved a sustainable school.
The teacher Baboo, has given his tireless efforts in teaching the children and committing himself to the purpose of providing sustainable future for his community. Baboo recognizes the many changes that have happened in his own life through the teacher training that he has received and he has a strong vision for the school
“My aim is to double the enrollment so that my younger brother can also become a teacher here.”
Today Baboo is very happy to have a secure foundation for the children in his school.
PEP aims to provide more specialized training to teachers like Baboo and hopes to establish effective leaders for their communities.
