We owe abundant gratitude to Presbyterian missionaries in the 1850s who recognized the importance of educating girls in Pakistan — most coming from poor families in rural areas. They devoted themselves to this mission and established schools in Punjab that are still operating today. They too faced challenges in their work but they persevered because of their commitment and dedication. We continue their legacy today as we currently are educating more than 6000 students in 21 schools.
We have expanded our mission with the SHE project (Struggle-Hope-Empowerment) to benefit marginalized women. This program offers vocational skills training so women can help to support their families. The women also receive instruction in math and reading, along with awareness training in health, hygiene, care of children, and much more. The SHE project is currently operating in 41 communities.
And our students continue to perform well and secure high marks in national examinations. The students are eager to learn and they work hard. This is a testament to the quality of academics that we are offering and trying to improve always.
