A chance to READ with P&G

In the aftermath of the October 2005 earthquake, P&G and READ Foundation partnered under the Safe Schooling for Building Futures initiative. The aim of this partnership was to build seismic-compliant schools in the earthquake-affected areas of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, to provide quality education to the afflicted children in a safe and supporting environment and build an educational, social and emotional base for the children.
The P&G-READ Foundation Schools promote education as not only a child's basic right, but as an instrument to improve the social and economic well-being of underprivileged communities. The first P&G-READ Foundation School was established in Gojra, Muzaffarabad. The school had an initial capacity of 100 students at the time. Today, it has grown into one of the largest and leading educational institutions in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, providing quality education at primary, secondary and higher secondary levels to over 1300 children. Since then, P&G-READ Foundation Schools have been established in Lamnian, a village in Muzaffarabad and Bhara Kahu, a suburb in Islamabad.

To date, more than 4600 children have received quality education through the P&G READ-Foundation Schools. Moreover, each year the P&G READ foundation schools help over 700 disadvantaged students transform their lives through the gift of free education in a safe and supportive learning environment.

The P&G-READ Foundation School facilities are constantly improved through infrastructural enhancements such as science and computer laboratories as well as modern day teaching methods and aids. The schools provide free-of-cost education to orphans and scholarships to children in need. Regular teacher trainings are conducted to continually elevate the quality of teaching. P&G employees are provided the opportunity to actively contribute towards the development of P&G-READ Foundation School children through various activities and personal interaction with the children.

Over the years, P&G-READ Foundation School children have excelled academically and held positions in the AJK Board Annual Examinations. To date, several brilliant students from P&G-READ foundation schools are pursuing higher education whilst many others are doing well in their chosen careers as engineers, doctors, teachers, agriculture scientists, business and IT professionals.

"We take pride in our partnership with P&G to impart quality education to the children of rural Pakistan. The enthusiasm, commitment and ingenuity at P&G go way beyond its corporate social responsibilities. P&G stands out for touching the hearts and minds of communities. Through our joint programs we have seen many lives changed for the better. We look forward to working together in many ways and for many years to come in order to make a greater difference in the lives of underprivileged children."
