Quality Education is one of the fundamental rights of a child in Pakistan but unfortunately Balochistan being the largest province of Pakistan remains deprived by the term “quality education with protected environment" in large. SEHER experienced that education and protection is interlinked and needs maximum focus. An ideal environment of a child wherein a child is provided quality education with protection from all forms of violence, abuse, exploitation, discrimination and corporal punishment. For improvement of education ratio in Balochistan and control the drop out and walk out ratio of children from schools, SEHER is advocating to focus on child friendly and protected environment, change in educational curriculum, capacity building of teacher, awareness raising of Parents and Care Givers in particular & Community in general and child development programs in institutions.
Balochistan Education Program is designed with aim to empower a child for having and enjoying all the rights according the Child Rights Convention (CRC), improve and strengthen the support mechanism at school and community level, ensure vigilance and monitoring system and child participatory environment . The key features of the program:
SEHER has made vital contribution for the improvement of quality education and protection through Balochistan Education program. The program provided the children to become young leaders of their school and contribute by raising voices for rights, enhance the child participation, report corporal punishment and protection issues, establish and maintain the helping and supporting bank (Uniform Bank, Book Bank and Donation Bank) for needy class mates. The program also focused on the effective and positive role of the teachers and community, therefore teacher and community training on Child Rights Convention, Positive Discipline and Child Protection issues is one of the key areas.
