pupils at school in Pakistan

Bethel School is located in Roufan colony, a rural area on the outskirts of Multan. The colony that it serves occupies a disused canal.  The school began informally in 2003 and later registered with the local board of education as a Primary School. There are over 100 children in the school which is the only one in the colony. The school is a well-constructed facility. There are 9 teachers, almost all of whom are qualified to BA standard, 6 classrooms and 9 classes up to Class 6. The above includes a sewing teacher who gives lessons to every pupil, male and female. The school runs for 12 months; they have no holidays.

Although coming from a very deprived background, the children are very committed to learning and results from government exams have been encouraging.
