Reforming Government schools into model schools of high-quality education.
Sunbeams has partnered with the federal and provincial governments to improve educational standards through our highly successful government school adoption program. To date, we have uplifted and transformed 9 government schools located in Gojra, Toba Tek Singh and Shah Allah Ditta, Islamabad.
Sunbeams has also implemented a contract with the Federal Directorate of Education, to provide 129 highly qualified teachers in 58 government schools located in far-flung areas of the federal capital. Teachers with 16 years of education from the top universities of Pakistan have been provided, specifically in the subjects of English, Maths, Science and Computer Science. Sunbeams hired, trained and placed these teachers in government schools in January 2022; and also implemented a regular system of monitoring, mentoring and assessment.
All over Pakistan, millions of children are studying in government schools where education is free but conditions are extremely poor. A lack of infrastructure, shortage of trained teachers, weak monitoring systems and a poor emphasis on student academics and grooming means that learning levels are shockingly low. Sunbeams implement its holistic School Improvement Program to address all these shortcomings.
The impact of these transformations is very sestainable and long-lasting.
The Way Forward
This is just the start. We believe that Government school reform is the quickest, most cost-effective way to reach out to millions of children and provide them with a quality education. We are looking forward to taking this project to many more marginal areas of Pakistan. For this, we need the constant support of our generous donors, volunteers, supporters, and the Government. Let’s spread the light of education – together.
