SOS Rural Support Program
In 1990 SOS started working in rural development and uplift in the Kasur District of Punjab. Kasur has been identified as an impoverished area, desperately in need of rural uplift and support as a result of several factors, including continuous flood devastation, unhygienic water supply resulting from the disposal of the polluted tannery waste, lack of medical and educational facilities and the generally low-income population.
At Present, 5 High schools and 1 College are run by SOS RSP Kasur, and 1108 children receive quality formal education. Fifty-four teachers are taken daily from Kasur City to the schools situated in villages so that children may learn from qualified teachers. Schools are situated in the main areas having comprehensive range coverage. Each school has a large area for classrooms, playgrounds, etc., fully equipped with modern and comfortable furniture providing a pleasant environment for the children. Audio-visual aids have been provided to all SOS schools. Trained, skillful, and qualified teachers teach students.
