Friends Public High School – Rasool Pura Kasur

Background

Friends Public High School is located at Rasool Pura Kasur . This area is full of bonded laborers and brick kiln workers. People are working here with their entire families, even children, are employed in this hazardous and exploitative work. Many of these people are trapped in debt bondage: seeking loans from kiln owners for medical and to full fill their family expenses, or during the monsoon season when brick making comes to a halt, they spend the rest of the year paying back the loan at very high rates. The another fact is schools are far from their residential places and the parents can not afford the tuition fee and fare of ups and down of the school. Initially we started a Primary School named Friends Public Primary school in 2012. But now we have upgraded Friends Public Primary School into Friends Public High School.

Bridging the gap

This area and the people really deserve that their children should go to school. They are so innocent and illiterate that they don’t think to educate their children. We have faced many questions and debates from them while starting a school there. Now their minds have made up and they are showing interest in education. Now their children are coming to school and getting shaped every day.
