The Good Samaritan Society Education project shines the spotlight on the children’s of brick kiln workers located in Sheikhupura It is a non-profit initiative that aims to provide top notch education to children from brick kiln worker families in the Sheikhupura district of Pakistan. The project was originated in 2021 by the Good Samaritan Society with the help of SALT AND LIGHT ASSOCIATION

The aim of this project is to provide high-quality education to the children’s of brick kiln workers. 

In the outset, we have 10 students, but by his grace with the passage of time, the number has grown to 100 and still increases.

One of the most disadvantaged and mistreated groups in Pakistan is the brick kiln workers. They put in a lot of overtime and risky job for pitiful pay. Because of this, their kids are frequently left to fend for themselves or made to work alongside them. This implies that they frequently lose out on education, and a large number of them never pick up reading or writing.

Children from brick kiln worker families receive free education thanks to the Good Samaritan education project for brick kiln workers kids in Sheikhupura. The initiative has set up several schools in brick kiln communities and gives the kids all the supplies they need, like stationery, books, and uniforms. On top of that, we acknowledged this thing that their homes are quite far away from school. Taking things into account, we decided to provide conveyance  to the students. So that they do not miss their school even for a single day.

Qualified educators who are dedicated to giving the kids a top-notch education work on the project. Although it is based on the national curriculum, the curriculum has been modified to fit the unique requirements of the students. Additionally, the project emphasizes vocational skills training heavily in order to give the kids the tools they need to grow up and find good jobs.

The educational initiative for children of brick kiln workers in Sheikhupura has had a profound impact on the lives of the kids it supports. A large number of the kids who were employed in brick kilns in the past are now enrolled in school and receiving quality education. Additionally, the project has improved the lives of brick kiln worker families and reduced child labor.
