ISLAMABAD: United States Agency for International Development (USAID) with the allocation of US $ 159.2 million soon to complete 106 schools in 10 districts of Sindh, affected by the 2010 flood which were imparting education to more than 50,000 students. 74 schools out of 106 have been completed already, while the remaining are at different stages of completion.

The eight year project titled USAID-Sindh Basic Education Programme (SBEP), started in 2013, has completed this year under which the schools were equipped with latest facilities in seven districts of Northern Sindh that include Sukkur, Khairpur, Larkana, Dadu, Qambar Shahdadkot, Jacobabad, Kashmore and three districts of Karachi i.e Karachi Malir, Karachi South and Karachi West.

USAID Director for Sindh and Balochistan James Parys sharing his comments said, “We believe that true and lasting development starts with education. The US government and Government of Sindh (GoS) have a long history of cooperation in education - from primary to post-graduate levels.”

Deputy Director Communications, Sindh Community Mobilization Programme, Amjad Jamal, giving details of the project completed said it was a joint venture of USAID and Sindh government, adding, USAID has provided US $ 81 million for construction of schools and US $ 78.2 million for soft components whereas an additional amount of US $ 10 million was contributed by the Sindh government.

He informed that in addition 14 more schools have been included in the project which would be completed by 2023. All these schools have been outsourced to the institutions with good academic management standards for 10 years to maintain quality of education after completion of the project.

After that, he said, these schools would be handed over to the Sindh government.
