Changing Despairs into Hopes

This is the story of different families, conjoined together in the vicious circle of poverty and economic deprivation. For Nargis Karamat, life was a continuous struggle in pain. Even marriage failed to bring any positive change; she ended up as a house maid in different houses to shoulder her family of two kids and a husband. Both the husband and wife were unable to send their children to school as their collective income was just Rs. 6,000/. After introduction of EVS in their area, EVS staff offered vouchers for both of her children. Stunned as she was, Nargis Karamat immediately agreed to the offer and started sending her children to a nearby EVS partner school. Now she has set up a small stitching instiution in her area and is supporting other girls to provide them vocational training.

Malala-e-Cholistan Misbah Shaheen

She is studying in a remote school situated in Cholistan area in Bahawalpur. This school was opened by Cholistan Development Authority. After the expiry of the project, this school along with other CDA run schools was taken over by the Punjab Education Foundation to provide free quality education to the students. However, the story is not as simple; she is the real hero of this PEF-CDA partnership saga. When she heard of the culmination of CDA run project and possible closure of her schools, Misbah Shaheen one day stopped the vehicle of DCO Bahawalpur and inquired about the future of education for girls like her who could not go afar due to paucity of resources. Her concern for the education of local girls prompted the district administration to look for possible options for the continuation of this project. After the initial formalities, all the students in these 75 schools in Cholistan are enjoying free quality education through a PEF–CDA managed partnership agreement under which PEF is sponsoring the education in shape of monthly fee and textbooks. After PEF-CDA partnership, the total number has reached to seven thousand and PEF has committed to get open more partner schools in Cholistan wherever needed. BBC and National Dailies have declared Misbah Shaheen “Malala-e-Cholistan”. She is indeed the pride of PEF.
