Rains and Floods affect the education of close to 80000 students across Balochistan in Pakistan
During the last few weeks, the rains have affected the education of tens of thousands of students across Baluchistan. Flash floods unleashed by heavy rainfall played havoc across all 32 districts of the province. Floods have damaged many school buildings in the province depriving students of education. Balochistan government has already declared an emergency in the province. Nine districts are declared calamity-hit areas after the flash floods.
The rains have damaged many building and have swept away roads, bridges and dams across the province. According to officials there, the condition of many schools in Balochistan have disrupted the education to tens of thousands of students. Rooms and buildings of schools are severely affected and the supply of electricity is unavailable.
In Baluchistan, over 1.1 a million students are enrolled in all 15000 primary, middle and high schools. However, the number of out-of-school children is over 1 Million. The government run schools paint a very bleak picture due to its limited number of facilities and poor quality of education.
At Human Appeal Australia, we believe that education and vocational training is key to eradicating poverty. We are utilising our resources in Pakistan to help rebuilding schools and facilitating the necessity of education.
