Schools In The Thar Desert
Sir: The Thar Desert, starting from India and ending in Pakistan, is spread over 19,637 square kilometres and has a population of about 1.4 million. Poverty procreates side problems and the unavailability of education in most of Thar is one of the gravest problems the people here face. When schools remain closed in relatively accessible areas and towns in the rest of Sindh then imagine what the situation in the nook and corner of the remote areas of Thar is where there are no roads and the population is scattered. Public sector education assumes utmost importance in Thar as it can enable the new generation to break the vicious cycle of poverty and superstitions that prevail in this society. However, the ground realities there paint a dismal picture. Overall, the public education system in Thar is on the verge of collapse. In such conditions, some civil society organisations are working for the revival of education as a ray of hope.
