ABC school in Gujranwala, which is one of the big cities in Pakistan, is located in one of the communities of underprivileged families. From generations these families have been trapped in doing menial jobs with low wages. Most parents and guardians work as cleaners and sweepers around the city, for brick kilns and any job that would give them some income. Even though they desire for their children to be educated, they lack financial resources to send them to school so the cycle of working in same type of jobs continues to remain as their norm. With ABC school things have changed for them and they are very grateful that their children can receive formal education and they are hopeful that their children will be able to come out of this vicious circle of poverty and deprived life. Over 240 children are studying in this school.
Currently ABC is running this school up to grade level 7 but in an ideal situation, it is best to keep this school to grade level 5 and when students complete their levels here, they would be moved to the boarding school in Machike. Due to lack of funds, space and facilities in the boarding school, ABC Pakistan had to accommodate these students in their current school. As the situation improves, Gujranwala Day School will roll back to grade level 5.
In order to provide all the needs of the children and to keep up with the operating expenses of the school, ABC desperately needs individual sponsors for children in Gujranwala Day School.
