  17. 17. Education Strategy ADP’s approach to education projects
  18. 18. The Big Picture - Enrollment • Almost 1/3 of Pakistan’s children are out of school • Nonprofits educate only ~3% of the country’s children Source: ADP estimates 18
  19. 19. The Big Picture - Quality • Learning levels are poor across the board • On average private schools perform ~30% better than government schools Source: ASER 19
  20. 20. The Big Picture - Cost • Pakistan cannot educate its children if it costs more than Rs 1,000/month to educate a child Average Private School (~ Rs. 400) •Govt •TCF •DIL •CARE (~Rs. 1k) Note: Assumes 54M children come from families that cannot afford to pay more than Rs. 250/mth •Beaconhouse •City School (Rs. 6k+) 20
  21. 21. ADP’s Approach: Smart Giving Private Sector Public Sector Educate Society Evaluate private sector players and create awareness around the strengths and weaknesses of various models. Strengthen Promising Players • Rigorously select and partner with the most promising, smaller non-profits to help them scale, both through financial and non-financial assistance. Create informed citizens who understand the need to reform the public education system and the actions required to achieve it. • Make resources available to any school operator (non-profit or for-profit) looking to improve their operations; including lesson plans, teacher training resources, assessment tools and other best practices. 21
  22. 22. Evaluation Framework • We look for institutions providing quality education at a reasonable cost and with the potential to scale Key Criteria Teaching Approach  Teacher qualifications  Teacher and student attendance  Student / teacher ratios  Development, training and support Outcomes  English reading and comprehension  Urdu reading and comprehension  Math skills  Dropout and secondary enrollment rates Facilities  State of building & classrooms  Washrooms  Playground  Facilities (staffroom, furniture etc.) Community  Parental needs & attitudes  Parent and community involvement Cost  Operating Expenses  Capital Expenses  Funding sources  % of students on scholarships Initial Evaluation • • • • • • Data collection Management discussions Parent interviews Student assessment Site visit References Monitoring • • Quarterly reports Site visits 22
  23. 23. Non-Financial Resources Areas of Support ADP’s Approach Teacher Training Develop partnerships with private and public training programs in order to make linkages between NGOs and the most suitable training offering Lesson Plans Review lesson plans used by the Punjab Education Reform, TCF, DIL and other leading organizations to extract material and develop user friendly lesson plans for partner schools Student Assessment • • • Management Systems Evaluate standardized assessment resources from larger public and private institutions to recommend tools for NGO partners ASER assessment tools to be used to compare basic learning outcomes against district, provincial and national survey data Goal is to help the organization, ADP and donors evaluate learning outcomes in a comprehensive and comparable manner Evaluate school processes and impart best practices on school administration and financial management underlying systems 23
  24. 24. Impact • Over $155,000 (PKR 16+ million) invested in education • MHSF ADP funding has helped build and expand 10 schools across Pakistan • ADP donations have established 5 computer, science and electronic labs • The investments are enabling education for 4,000 students annually 24
  25. 25. Diverse Models ADP is working to identify the most promising solutions for different segments of need. Low Cost Private Schools (LCPS): These schools often deliver better quality education than government schools at a lower cost (< Rs. 500 per month). ADP partners like Bunyad Literacy Community Council (BLCC) and Amir Public School (APS) fall in this category. Higher cost, higher quality schools: Schools like those in the MHSF network charge relatively higher tuition fees (approximately Rs. 1,000-1,500) but on average perform better than lower cost public and private options. All teachers hold B.A degrees and receive one full year of teacher training. This is often a good model to deliver high quality education to the lower middle classes. Informal schools: Informal schools can be a good solution for nomadic populations such as those residing in katchi abadis (slums). In 2012, ADP funded the Pehli Kiran School System (PKSS), its first informal schooling partner. Public-private partnerships: We are evaluating models for private sector collaboration that can deliver better returns on the government’s education spending. This ranges from models where the government provides funding to a private school (e.g. through the Punjab Education Foundation) to organizations like PEN, that provide additional services and staff at government schools to improve their quality. 25
  26. 26. Current Partners The JAQ Trust undertakes two distinct kinds of activities: (i) non-formal community based education through the Pehli Kiran Schools (PKSS), which constitute over 95% of its operations; and (ii) educational scholarships to support continuing education of students beyond primary school, essentially in the formal school system. Founded in 1996 Location: Islamabad # of students:1,307 Cost/Student: Rs. 252/month The M.H Sufi Foundation has established eleven schools in Hafizabad, a rural district in Punjab with little access to quality education and a population of over 1 million. Founded in 1994 Location: Hafizabad District, Punjab # of students: 4,400 Cost/Student: Rs. 1,473/month The Amir Public School model, operated by Nia Ujala aims to provide quality education to facilitate students to have an equal opportunity and develop to their full potential. The school has been running for the last thirty years and all education related facilities are provided free of cost to the children. Special emphasis is given to girls education, which is often sidelined in the area. Founded in 1980 Location: Gujrawala District, Punjab # of students: 230 Cost/Student: Rs. 432/month The SOS Rural Support Program emphasizes upon Education, Livelihood Enhancement and Protection, Human and Institutional Development, Physical Infrastructure and Social Mobilization. It has set up some of the only girls schools in the area, increasing female enrolment by a substantial amount. Founded in 1990 Location: Kasur, Punjab # of students: 2650 Cost/Student: Rs. 455/month 26
  27. 27. Water Strategy ADP’s approach to water projects
  28. 28. Pakistan: The Big Picture ► The majority of Pakistanis (64%) do not have water piped into their premises • Most rely on wells, hand pumps or collecting surface water ► 88% of the functional water supply schemes in Pakistan provide water that is unsafe for drinking because of microbiological contamination ► Millions of labor hours are spent in collecting water, particularly by women and children ► Children are especially vulnerable: 90% of the deaths that occur from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are in children under five years old*1 ► WASH related diseases alone cost the economy about PKR 112 billion (US$ 1Bn) per year in terms of health costs and lost earnings*2 *1 Facts and Figures, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Links to Health, WHO. *2 Pakistan Water Sector Strategy. Water Sector Profile. Volume 5. Government of Pakistan. Ministry of Water and Power (October 2012) 28
  29. 29. ADP: When do we step in? • Lack of Access • Water source is at a considerable distance from the community • Women and children spend a significant amount of their time collecting water • Contamination: • Community is drinking water from a polluted/contaminated source • Lack of Access and Contamination • Combination of both issues mentioned above • Health issues arising from water/sanitation (WASH) related diseases • Community, NGOs or nearby Health Units report a significant number of diseases resulting from the lack of access to clean drinking water or from the drinking of water that is unfit for human consumption. 29
  30. 30. Solutions Access Source Solutions Ground water • • • • Surface water (rivers, streams, lakes) • Water supply schemes No (will do so soon) Rainfall • Rainwater harvesting Yes Hand pumps Motor pumps Solar pumps Dug wells ADP Experience? Yes Purification Method Solutions ADP Experience? Centralized • Filtration plants Yes Distributed • Bio-sand filters Yes 30
  31. 31. Our Approach Goal: Invest in sustainable solutions • Location identification  Problems with existing water infrastructure  Government’s role in the target area  # Beneficiaries • Select the right solution  Geographic factors  Cost benchmarks • Select a credible partner  Prior experience  Credibility with the community • Water quality testing   Look at previously conducted tests Get new tests conducted • Ensure sustainability     Supply reliability Useful life of equipment Maintenance plan Community support • Monitoring and Evaluation  Regular reports/updates from NGO  Follow-up site visits 31
  32. 32. Impact • Over $74,000 (PKR 7+ million) invested • ($) Cost per beneficiary 25 21 ADP funding has helped facilitate10 water projects across Pakistan 20 15 • The investments are enabling clean water for 20,000 beneficiaries • Interventions have included: hand pumps, water filtration plants, dug wells, bio-sand filters and rainwater harvesting 10 4.7 5 2.25 1.99 1.2 0 Filtration plants Hand pumps (SIDO) (BDS) Hand pumps (NEEDS) Note: The lifetime of these projects could range anywhere from 10 years to a lifetime with minimal maintenance required Hand pumps (MGPO) Mountainous area Rainwater Harvesting (SF) Structures can contain 1.5m litres of water 32
  33. 33. Key Themes/Lessons in Water • “One size fits all approach does not work” The right intervention model in any situations needs to reflect local geography, current water sources and community involvement. • Community involvement is key to the success of any project/intervention There are numerous cases we have observed where communities have not accepted NGO water interventions and projects have fallen into disrepair. • Access is not enough Quality of water is a real issue. Water testing has to be a key part of ADP evaluations. • Water and Sanitation go together Water borne diseases are often tied to both clean drinking water and better sanitation/hygiene practices. Working on the two together will improve the impact of ADP’s projects. 33
  34. 34. Current Partners: Water NEEDS is a nonprofit organization based in the Sukaar Foundation was established in 2003 and is headquartered in the Mithi city of Tharparkar, Sindh. The Foundation focuses on addressing water, sanitation and health/hygiene education issues in Sindh and has worked with Water Aid-Pakistan, the World Bank, and UNICEF on a number of hygiene education and water projects in Sindh. Beer Development Society: Registered in 2000, BDS began by focusing on social mobilization in order to strengthen grassroots organisations in region but it has grown to engage in water and sanitation, health and hygiene, education and disaster management projects. Charsadda District. It works to eradicate poverty by creating policies that transform societies, focusing on key issues such as education, health and women empowerment. Their main objectives are increasing literacy rates, improving community health, increasing income levels and providing legal support and awareness. Sudhaar Society: Sudhaar has been working in children development and protection since 1995. It has implemented more than 40 projects across a range of sectors including literacy, vocational training, emergency relief, school improvement programs and health & hygiene. Sudhaar has previously worked with ILP, Save the Children-UK, UNICEF, The Asia Foundation and the US Department of Labor. 34

  47. 47. Appendix
  48. 48. 2013 Projects Education, Energy, Water & Health
  49. 49. Education Project Name: Building a New School in Bhun Khurd Budget: $25000 NGO: MH Sufi Foundation (MHSF) Location: District Hafizabad, Punjab Details: In early 2013, ADP funded the construction of a primary school for 330 children on the southeast side of Hafizabad city in Punjab. The school will cater to 15 villages within a 5km radius that currently lack access to quality education. The ground floor building includes eleven classrooms, bathrooms and a head teacher’s office. The total construction cost is Rs. 4.93 million, of which ADP is covering about half, with the remaining funds coming from the MH Sufi Foundation. 49
  50. 50. Education Project Name: Secondary School in Natt Kalan Budget: $17,200 NGO: Bunyad Literacy Community Council (BLCC) Location: Natt Kalan, Punjab Details: ADP is funding BLCC to construct a girls’ secondary school in Natt Kalan village in rural Punjab. Presently, the nearest girls’ secondary school in the area is 5-6 km away. Most girls in the village cannot continue on with secondary education due to the distance. The funds provided by ADP will allow Bunyad to add 3 new classrooms equipped with electricity and furniture to alleviate crowded classrooms, create a more conducive learning environment and enable learning at the secondary level. It will install a hand pump along with a motor pump to ensure access to purified drinking water. Finally, it will construct latrines and a boundary wall to facilitate the retention of girls studying at the secondary level. 50
  51. 51. Education Project Name: Government Boys Middle School, Sadhoki Budget: $9,606 NGO: Progressive Education Network (PEN) Location: Sadhoki Village, Punjab Details: ADP is funding its first project under the umbrella of the public-private partnership model. PEN works to improve academic quality in government schools by adopting selected public schools for a ten year time period. Currently, Government Boys Middle School, Sadhoki is facing a severe shortage of classrooms, which means that it repeatedly has to turn away new admissions. Existing students are studying in unfavorable conditions in the verandah, struggling to learn. The government is unable to provide funding for the expansion and thus ADP is playing a critical role in filling in the gap by supporting the construction of two additional classrooms.
  52. 52. Energy Project Name: Micro Hydro Power Project Budget: $10,000 NGO: Sustainable Development Organization Location: Village Phullawai, Neelum District, Azad Kashmir Details: ADP is partnering with the Sustainable Development Organization (SDO) to rehabilitate a micro hydropower project in Union Council Phullawai of Kashmir’s Neelum District. ADP funding is supporting the provision of electricity for over 200 households (6,000 individuals). The project will also aid in reduction of deforestation in the area as the residents are currently dependent on firewood for lighting their houses. Additionally, this project will establish a Village Development Committee and encourage collaboration, community participation and knowledge sharing in the area. 52
  53. 53. Water Project Name: Rainwater Harvesting Budget: $20,000 NGO: Sukaar Foundation (SF) Location: Village Dhabi Bheel, Tharparkar, Sindh Details: ADP is funding its first Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) project in Dhabi Bheel, Sindh. RWH structures collect and store rainwater for later usage with ponds being one of the most effective and commonly used RWH structures in the area. For the purposes of this project, ADP is supporting the construction of one village level and 70 household level ponds. The larger village-level pond can store approximately 1 million liters of water while the smaller household-level ponds have a storage capacity of 8,000 liters water each. Dhabi Bheel is a small village consisting of 160 households (951 individuals) and villagers have to walk 4-5 kilometers (a 90 minute walk) to get to the nearest source of water. In addition, the existing village wells have a high concentration of salts and minerals making the water unsuitable for drinking. 53
  54. 54. Health Project Name: Diagnostic equipment for an Eye Hospital Budget: $10,165 NGO: Jannat Aziz Trust (JAT) Location: Burewala, Vehari, Punjab Details: ADP funded the purchase of ophthalmic equipment at the JAT Eye Hospital in Burewala in early, 2013. Aimed at strengthening the diagnostics department at the hospital, ADP funds were channeled for the procurement of a B-scan machine used for ultrasonography. This machine is an important tool for the clinical assessment of various ocular and orbital diseases and assists in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetic, hypertensive and complicated cataract cases. The goal is to have patients treated at the Hospital instead of having to refer them to facilities in Lahore and Multan. 54
  55. 55. Health Project Name: Equipment for Children’s Cancer Hospital Budget: $20,000 NGO: Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) Location: Karachi, Sindh Details: ADP is funding new ER and Daycare equipment at the Children’s Cancer Hospital in Karachi. The new equipment will help meet rising patient demand and improve the quality of medical care provided at the ER and the Daycare. We expect the equipment investment to pay dividends in terms of improving the quality of care and overall effectiveness at providing low-cost quality treatment to the disadvantaged. The upgrades to the equipment will allow current workload to reduce and allow the hospital to provide conclusive care to the 25-30 patients who visit the Emergency Room daily, 80-90 in outpatient and 50-60 children who come to the Daycare for Chemotherapy and other procedures. 55
