Abbas's story

28 year old Abbas, started running a school 4 years ago after completing his own studies. The aim of the school is to offer learning opportunities by addressing the learning needs of the children living in his community. There are 283 students enrolled in the school and 50% of them are female students.

When Abbas was asked about the biggest challenge faced by him, he shared high level of absenteeism is caused by lack of transportation facility. Abbas has saved some money to purchase a school van to transport the students. However, there is shortage of PKR. 100,000 for purchase school van. He has requested an amount of PKR. 100,000 which will enable him to purchase the school van for children and reduce the absenteeism rate.
