Network for Human and Social Development

Network for Human and Social Development (NHSD) is a registered NGO with Social Welfare Department ICT, Islamabad and Pakistan Center for Philanthropy (PCP), working in the fields of Education, Health and Disaster Management since 2005.

Developing Libraries in 20 Underprivileged Schools

The project aims to develop libraries in 200 schools that are being administered and managed in socioeconomically underprivileged rural areas of Punjab. NHSD hopes to develop libraries in 200 schools by providing books and bookshelves, which will be donated after being collected, collated, compiled and then dispatched to these schools. These books will be a resource available to these communities, as these communities do not have access to regular electricity and internet services, and since members of these communities are burdened by the financial constraints brought by purchasing textbooks, the libraries will assist them and ease this burden.

NHSD hopes to achieve our target in one year. Our organization has been successfully running a project, The Collectors’ Admiralty (TCA). TCA has successfully established libraries in NHSD central office, KKO School for Differently Abled Children, and KKO Girls Primary School in Baria Panhwar, Village Mehar, District Dadu, Sindh Province Pakistan.

The short term impact is the increase in literacy by 45% in the Punjab Province, shared and pooled resources of textbooks helping at least 150,000 families and decreasing school drop-outs among girls and boys of the Punjab province by at least 30%.
