The Tasibeh Girls School is a school for girls in Pindi in rural Pakistan. The school opened in 2008, aiming to provide basic and free education for girls from poor families who otherwise would have no access to education.
The Tasibeh Girls School has gone from strength to strength since it first opened nine years ago. It is supported by a small UK registered charity, The Tasibeh Girls School Fund. This charity is based in Rotherham and has support from across the community, especially here in South Yorkshire. It costs around £12,000 a year to run the school and the UK charity works to raise this annually.
This year we are really pleased and proud to have 170 girls on roll, who otherwise would not have an education, would not learn to read and write and have their aspirations limited to unskilled and low paid work. The school is educating girls both at primary and secondary school level. To continue to support the growing number of children attending the school, we have had to build four new classrooms. This we have done with the financial help of the Tasibeh Girls School Fund here in the UK and with the great help and support from the community in Pindi.
Our challenge now is to furnish and properly equip these four new classrooms. We are also wanting to raise funds for food parcels for orphan children, widows, families in need and adults with disabilities from surrounding villages. These are handed out at the Tasibeh School.
