Sindh Educational Alliance in Larkana works by creating a strong bond between parents, local government, media, and educational organizations. Our focus has been on highlighting the challenges in the educational sector, which are negatively impacting the learning outcomes of students in the region. Our work has included emphasizing the missing facilities in educational institutions, the poor conditions of schools in slum areas, and the number of children out of school. By facilitating meaningful conversation through corner meetings, workshops, seminars and rallies Sindh Educational Alliance wants to send a strong message to communities that they have an integral role to play if the quality of education in the region is to improve.
