Sistan Baluchistan School Project
Due to the geographical condition of Sistan-Baluchestan and the large population distribution, the region has the lowest educational coverage in the country and the highest proportion of illiteracy. Lack of sufficient number of schools in populated areas, especially in rural areas, is one of the leading reasons for this. The province also has the lowest rate in schools per capital in the country. The Yari Foundation wants to help solve this challenge by building a school in a strategically chosen area and thus enabling thousands of children to receive the education they are entitled to.
After a major investigation, we have chosen the Lashar area and the village of Kahiri for the school project. The survey has shown that by building a larger boarding school, we will be able to enable more children from more villages to go to school. Our preliminary study has also indicated that this may have implicit positive effects in the region as it would mean a higher degree of coordination between the villages, an exchange that we believe will benefit the region as a whole. We have also assessed that since girls are most vulnerable and take the greatest risks when they go to and from school, that the school should be a school for girls only.
