What is Edvolution?

MISSION: TALEEM-IZATION

 

 

Project: EDVOLUTION EVENING SCHOOL:

We started this project in summer of 2014.Literacy training programs were conducted near Azeem/lemo gaoth. Around 60 kids were taught. In July 2014, we started evening school for the kids. Initially it was 2 hours, latter after 6 months we increased timings to 4 hours.

 

The address of the school is House L508 Haji Limo Goth Gulshan-e-Gqbal Block 3 Karachi.  Currently, we are working to increase income of parents to prevent their kids from doing child labor. Therefore, we are introducing vocational training such as cooking and tailoring for their mothers.


Project: Near Hub Chowki at Jamia Al Mariam School :

We are supporting the education of 200+ underprivileged kids studying at “Jamia Al Mariam School” near Hub Chowki; It is an initiative to revamp the standards of an existing school, their resource mobilization, interaction of parents, management, hygiene and environment, co-curricular activities, mentoring and counseling sessions; all of which is to make education reachable to children who may be less-privileged but have a right to grow in all dimensions. We have set up computer laboratories which will help in opening new doors of information technology for the students of this school.


 

Project: Near UP Morh, Karachi:

Edvolution Pakistan ascends towards the third step of accomplishing its mission: “Taleemization” by arranging pre-admission training programs for the under privileged but precious children living in the slums of U.P.Morh, Karachi. We are very much thankful to The Grand School for helping us commence our program in their school facility.

The team surveyed the slums and selected twenty-five children for the pre-admission training program in which they will be given the basic knowledge and education. The team is working hard for the success of the program.  After the program, the little minds will be able to take the admission test and get selected to study in the school, thus safeguarding a bright future.

 


Project: Near Hassan Square, Karachi:

 

To this date, the first batch of 9 kids selected from the slum area near Al-Mustafa Hospital, Hassan Square are already going to New Cinderella Grammar School (Gulshan-e-Iqbal) and are scoring highest marks in their classes. These kids went through a three month literacy program so that they are prepared for the studies ahead. Weekly tests were taken and the progress was thoroughly observed so that the team could admit the kids to the school. It is important to mention here, that the spending on these children have been through our collections at NED University of Engineering and Technology, our home ground, for which we are grateful to every single person who contributed and showed trust in us.

We admitted the kids on September 2011 and now after one year kids are going to school regularly. After final year of exam, four kids out of nine secured positions in their classes. On 22 October, 2011 we organized a seminar at NEDUET Civil lecture hall. In the event Dean Dr. Shoaib Zaidi rewarded medals to the 9 kids to acknowledge their hard work.



 

EVENTS

 

Album: Eid visit:

"Maah e Ramzan guzar Gaya
Guzar Gayee Eid Bhi
Magar dekh k ghar ki Halaat
Kuchh Bachon ne Phir Roza Rakh lia”

This is the story of every poor Pakistani kid. For these poor souls Eid is just another ordinary day when their only thoughts are whether they will be able to get enough food to eat and survive. Our society is divided into two classes, the rich and the poor! While the rich enjoy the pleasures of life the poor suffer. So to bring smiles on these innocent faces, the Eid visit was planned. The kids were overjoyed. They were given treats to eat and henna was applied on the hands of young girls. Cake was served along with other sweets. The smiles on their faces will always be cherished. That was when we realized that real happiness lies in the art of sharing. We did our bit to make these poor children happy and we shall continue to do what little we can contribute.
