Provision of School Van for Mobility Support to Young Girls of Siran Vally

Young girls in remote areas of Siran Vally, District Mansehra face issues of access to education on account of financial and cultural constraints. One such vulnerable area is Meelbut which is located in Union Council Jabbar Devli of District Mansehra.

Friends Pakistan has been operating a Girls Secondary School at the village Meelbut which is central location for all villages of UC Jabbar Devli. There are about thirty (30) surrounding villages as per assessment conducted by Friends Pakistan. In the surrounding villages of Meelbut, there are numerous girls who wished to attend school after passing their primary education but on account of unavailability of local transport in the area they were deprived of their right to access quality education at secondary level.


Friends Pakistan with the financial support of “The Waterloo Foundation” supported the young girls of Union Council Jabbar Devli by providing the School Vehicle that is facilitating the mobility of young girls of surrounding villages of Meelbut to access the Community Managed Girls Middle and High School Meelbut. The provision of school vehicle has increased the access of young girls of surrounding areas and currently one hundred and seventy five (175) girls of the remote villages of Jabbar Devli are accessing the quality education at GMHS Meelbut.
