Providing rich education to the poor is the goal of this project. Mubarika Campus is situated in an area devasted by poverty where more than 90% of the female population is illiterate. Currently, there is only one government-run school for girls in this large region. Great distances, lack of transportation, and an inability of the parents to meet government school expenses, combine to continue the cycle of illiteracy for the region's girls and women.
Mubarika is working to change that.
They have built a school that now serves more than 700 students, boys through grade 5, and girls through grade 9. However, there remains a lot to accomplish. The project is now fundraising to build an additional building to increase student capacity, launch additional programs for girls, and provide vocational training.
