Currently, no higher secondary schools exist for girls in the immediate region. With no such education, those young women are barred from government employment, nursing, and university-level education among other opportunities.
Work with organizations on the ground to construct a higher secondary school, specifically two classrooms and a science laboratory. Circle of Women will also provide operating costs of the school for one year, including teacher salaries.

Education is one of the responsibilities most neglected by the Pakistani Government, which invests only 2.5% of its GDP in the school system. This is a gendered crisis, as there is a 20 percentage point difference in enrollment in higher secondary school of boys compared to girls. Infrastructure for schools for women are essential to economic and social development of the nation.
The community is highly committed to the success of this school. Further, FWA and the Hoshyar Foundation have been involved in the region for ten years and have seen massive success. The building will be built to a higher code to ensure that the structure can withstand the natural disasters that have brought so many other structures down.
