Twins Pakistan

Developments in Literacy - Twins

Twins Pakistan is a co-operation between Twins and DIL Trust UK

DIL Trust UK is a charity dedicated to providing quality education to disadvantaged children, especially girls, by establishing and operating schools in the underdeveloped regions of Pakistan.

Only 42% of Pakistani children are enrolled in schools. Less than half of those enrolled complete five years of schooling.

Schools in Pakistan have very few of the sort of teaching resources and other equipment that are plentiful in most United Kingdom schools

Twins Pakistan is a new project in its pilot phase.

In due course, the project will be expanded to cover a large number of schools similar to the almost two hundred schools twinned through Twins Sri Lanka.

A relatively small amount of money goes a long way in providing IT equipment to children in Pakistan.

Temperatures in areas of Pakistan can frequently rise above 46ºC (115ºF) between May and August. A water cooler or solar powered fan can make a huge difference to the conditions in which children learn.
