Educational

In the context of Balochistan, the school enrolment is low, drop-out rate is high, and standard of teaching is poor. Schools are inappropriately located and are in shambles. Great disappointment is expressed by the people about the whole system of education. In short, the education sector of the province is in a state of emergency and requires concerted efforts of the government and non-government organizations to fix the education not only in terms of quantity but also quality.

With the launch of the SDGs, more emphasis it laid on quality of education.

Taking notice of the above problems of the education sector in the province, BRDS set the following objective to address the education sector challenges and problems:

“To contribute to the primary, secondary, and high school education by increasing access of children to school, by improving quality of education, and by ensuring parents and teachers’ active participation in improving children’s education.”

In line with the education SDG, Article 25-A, the education policy, and the five-year education sector plan of the province, BRDS has been contributing to the education sector in the province.

BRDS’ achievement of the education sector until the end of 2017 is as follows:
