GET catering to the academic needs of the IDP’s of Swat and Malakand
GET is determined to spread light of knowledge all over where children cannot get education due to natural calamities and other turbulences such as the terrible earthquake in northern Pakistan. In such critical situation, GET instantly established schools in tents for the children of Balakot and Batgram to cope with their academic needs. With the passage of time, these tent schools were converted to buildings with the co-operation of GET and other NGO’s where hundreds of children are still being educated.
The army operation in 2008/09 in north-western province against militants forced the residents to leave their homes and towns. They were internally displaced and took shelter in camps in severe conditions of weather and lack of food and water. The elderly, women and children were most vulnerable in these conditions.
In view of the situation, GET established tent schools for the children of IDP’s of Swat, Boner and Malakand in two major camps (Sheikh Yaseen Camp, Parhooti Camp). GET, along with other organizations, also established separate schools for girls and boys with morning and evening programs. In these camps hundreds of children were able to get connected with their academic career. In addition to this, they were also imparted with hope, confidence and love.
