What we do?

Adult Education Program


Low Cost and Subsidize Education Program:-

STEP Developed an Educational program with the community of Gaffari Town (Remote and slum area of Faisalabad city.) The program is developed by the people of the area .The People of the area discussed their problems that they can not send their children far away and in such schools, which are costly for them. So on acute need of community a school (Mashal-e-Rah Model School) is started in the area .now we have 80 children.


Free Education Coaching Program and night Schools Centers:-

Many children are working in different sectors .so they are lacking of Education .The children themselves showed their interest that they also need education .but their availability is not possible in the morning time. So they decided, there should be such an educational program which can help them to fulfill their educational need in the evening. For the purpose we made survey under the program, (working and street children, to come for their consultancy for education.)Now we have 40 children in our program.


SME (Small and Medium Enterprisers)

The community developed a program with discussion that there should be some income generating programs.

So we planed with community we must prefer to our small business (preparation of Children Garments, Embroidery etc) rather charwomen jobs. Support is needed for this Program.

STEP Team started work with community of Gaffari Town, Malkhanwala and Salak Town in April 2005.The men by profession are daily wages labors, bricks kiln workers , keep donkey carts , mule carts and have buffalos and they sell the milk of them. Women work as charwomen at the rich people houses.

The community has no awareness about education .They told  STEP Team that there will not be any advantage of Adult Education but  STEP team was successful to motivate them, with inauguration of (Mashal-e-Rah Model School).STEP got encouragement .This Program also caught the attention of the other community members..

The program raised aspiration in maid women and girls to get education.
