As a result of its concern that more than 2 million students may be forced to abandon their studies in flood-affected areas, the Sindh government has declared an education emergency in the state.
Syed Sardar Ali Shah, the minister of Sindh’s education and culture, stated that the province’s educational system had sustained serious harm as a result of the severe floods.
The government of Sindh is taking action to guarantee that the expected number of students continue to be included in the educational process. In the province’s flood-affected districts, the Education Ministry is considering creating tent schools.
The Minister also urged local and international NGOs to help the government with rehabilitation efforts since residents who have lost everything would not be able to pay for their children’ academic fees.
In a recent development, the UK-based group Save the Children stated that more than 18,500 educational institutions have suffered partial damage or have been entirely destroyed as a result of the devastating floods brought on by Pakistan’s excessive monsoon rainfall.
Over 670,000 kids have been impacted by the devastation nationwide, according to a study. Millions of rupees’ worth of books, copies, blackboards, tables, and chairs have also been totally destroyed. Regarding education, Sindh continues to be the province that is most impacted. Due to flooding, around 16,000 schools and colleges have been impacted.
