Literacy NGOs in Pakistan

Pakistan is a country that has been through many hardships. The literacy rate in Pakistan is only 58%, but there are many NGOs working to help improve this statistic with education programs, including one called ‘We Can Read’. This organization works to provide free books and literacy classes for children between the ages of 5-14 years old in impoverished areas throughout Pakistan.

 With their services being provided at no cost, these children have the opportunity to learn how to read and write without having to worry about school fees or payment. Literacy NGOs in Pakistan are an excellent way for organizations like We Can Read to continue making strides towards improving conditions for those who need it most.  Please consider donating today!
