Most unfortunate are the young ones who are born in overcrowded homes with not enough to eat and no awareness of education. Thus no prospects of climbing out of the abysmal misery.
Global Education Campaign (GEC) was founded to provide educational opportunities to these children, who overwise will go uneducated and unskilled, and would be exposed to abuse and exploitation and the cycle of poverty will continue generation after generation.
White Board Distribution Program
Besides the devastating effects of COVID-19, children’s education has been hampered greatly all over the world. Because of the lack of electronic devices such as electronic notebooks and smartphones in most households in developing countries, children are at a greater loss. Dosti Welfare Organization, based in Peshawar, Pakistan has taken an initiative of giving each household in its area of service a whiteboard along with markers and eraser under its slogan of My Home, My School. This offer is appealing to families who are concerned about their children’s education.
Till date GEC has distributed 3041 whiteboards benefitting 35504 children. 121 one room schools have been emerged out of this project so far.
