Informal Schools

To fight illiteracy, HOPE runs Home Schools nationwide. These schools run in the homes of the community girls. The neighborhood children attend the school. Many teenage girls drop out of school after class 5, because no secondary school is present in the area. These girls are provided books as well as taught by other educated girls in the community. They are then encouraged to give private high school examinations. Textbooks are provided free of cost, and there is no fees. The furniture for the school including black board, dari, chairs, tables etc are also provided. In addition, efforts are directed towards improving mothers’ literacy through Adult Literacy Classes. Mothers are taught to read and write using simple techniques. This will help raise awareness among mothers on various issues.
