Pakistan and Afghanistan
Our work involves uplifting the educational sector in Pakistan, Afghanistan and beyond, by seating those children in the classrooms who have never had the good fortune of holding a book in their hands, as well as providing learning materials to the students who cannot afford them. We also have done well with the education of adult women in the two countries.
It has been said that education is the greatest equalizer, nothing could be truer. Every human being must be provided with the opportunity to begin the process of education. How far a child could go, nobody knows. At this time our focus is on seating as many children in classrooms as possible. These classrooms could be in a living room, a veranda, under a tree or simply in open air.
We are seeking collaborations with individuals, organizations; big or small, or governments that are concerned with world peace, fairness and security. An educated person with a career is less like to blow others or himself.
Our exponential speed is based on a highly fruitful and synergistic collaboration between us and the local young men and women who volunteer their services to the young boys and girls in their areas. GEC provides the methodology, support, by-laws, and guideline for a strict code of conduct.
Please refer to the changing statistics above for the number of children served in both countries. The statistics are updated every Friday.
