Description of Project
In rural areas of Sindh only government primary schools are available where the teachers teach children in an old traditional pattern. They only focus on text books prescribed by Sindh Text Board in the class rooms while no any other activity has been seen to teach through additional material. Resultantly, the children neither take interest nor feel attraction towards education. Though schools are there, but out of schools children ratio is rapidly increasing day by day. In such circumstances provision of children learning resource material in pilot schools have developed keen interest in the children and suits to the local conditions.
Department for International Development (DFID), DAI Europe Limited, Untied Kingdom Agency for International Development (UKaid) supported MDF to design games manual in Mathematics and English subjects to teach girl and boy students to Enhance Enrolment and Learning environment achievements in 50 Primary Schools of Union Council Seerani, Badin District Sindh in 15 Months.
