Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Friends of PEB raises funds to provide quality education to nearly 6000 students in 25 schools in the Punjab region of Pakistan. We provide scholarships for needy and deserving students, and improve the infrastructure at the schools. These historic Presbyterian schools were started by missionaries in the mid-1800s. The Pakistani government took over the schools for nearly 25+ year (1974-1999). During that time the educational level significantly decreased and the buildings were run into terrible disrepair. In Pakistan, a mere 2.7% of the GDP is spent on education. As a result, public schools have meager resources, are poorly run, and are unable to meet sufficient educational standards. 47% of Pakistani children have never attended school, and the drop-out rate at the primary level is a staggering 41%. The literacy rate in the Punjab province (age 10 years +) is 60% (male 70%, female 51%). In rural areas, literacy drops to 64% for males and 40% for females.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We raise funds to provide quality education to nearly 6000 students in 25 PEB schools in the Punjab region of Pakistan. We aim to provide scholarships for needy and deserving students, and improve the infrastructure at the schools.

The PEB school system in Pakistan provides quality education for all Pakistani children, regardless of religious background or ability to pay.

Our 5-year plan is to: 1) Increase annual scholarship support by $50,000 each year to reach an annual goal of $500,000/year; 2) raise funds to complete three income generating schools (approx. $1.1M); and 3) raise funds to complete 6 critically needed buildings (approx. 1.2M).

To accomplish our 5 year plan:

1. We will strengthen the administrative staff in the U.S. and expand the U.S. board.
2. We will implement 4 quality fundraising campaigns each year.
3. We will follow an annual 2x2 building plan approach.
4. We will secure leadership donations.
5. We will strengthen relationships with current donors and expand our donor base.

Having raised $6.6M in 10 years, with more then half ($3.4M) in the past 3 years, we believe our 5 year goals are reasonable and attainable. The enthusiastic and active board members are key, as well as a broad understanding across the U.S. and world of the impact that education has in the lives of individuals, communities, countries, and international relations.

During it's 10 years since inception Friends of PEB has increased annual giving to over $1M. 20 new buildings have been built, as well as numerous renovation projects, allowing PEB to grow from 7 schools in 1998 to 25 schools in 2019. The scholarship matching program, which began in 2012, raised over $273,000 in the 2018-19 school year, providing 689 needy students with full scholarships.
