Sindh’s learning challenges are the severest in Pakistan (ASER 2021) as is the low enrolment levels in rural Sindh.  These trends have been exacerbated due to the pandemic (2020-2022) both in terms of enrolment and learning losses. The Monster Floods have further accelerated the crisis of education, especially for the poorest and most vulnerable groups for whom public sector education is often the only service delivery option and often with little family and state support to mitigate such crises.

Currently, total enrolment in Sindh is around Five (5) Million, with around 30% of the children due to the floods are displaced, five to six Thousand schools are fully damaged and approximately 2 to 2.5 Million school going children are affected with up to 1 or 1.5 Million children are  out-of-school (OOSC).

  • Education Entitlement

    Education is a fundamental entitlement for children especially the most marginalized linked to other entitlements as capabilities including lifelong learning, health, nutrition, economic opportunities, gender equality & poverty reduction

  • Access to inclusive quality

    Access to inclusive quality learning and especially foundational learning is a fundamental right (25 A) with laws and rules in place. Sindh province has notified a comprehensive Sindh Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2013 along with rules (2015) for implementation. The rules were developed consultatively with stakeholders including ITA, as a longstanding member of LEG.

  • The School is a central unit

    The School is a central unit of planning within designated school clusters (union councils/blocks) finalized by the SELD for access to safe and quality education with school leaders/headteachers ensuring linkages of children/students, teachers and parents, or schools and homes in a local community context; the home-school linkage evidence was very bold throughout COVID -19 (ASER 2021 surveys)

  • Emergencies such as the ‘monster floods’

    Emergencies such as the ‘monster floods’ are an opportunity to extend immediate relief to students/teachers/schools and engage in structural and strategic system shifts for remapping/rethinking and redesigning the home-school and school-cluster link with greater engagement of parents/caregivers with duty bearers for foundational and social emotional learning, health/ hygiene, life skills and gender equality
