As a nonprofit, DIL’s ultimate goal is to produce long-term sustainable change in the lives of those our programs touch.
What we do
Empowering communities is a central outcome of DIL’s work in Pakistan. DIL projects take special measures to involve community stakeholders in maintaining and operating its schools. Through this process, communities begin to value education, embrace education for girls, and demonstrate higher hopes for the future of its children.
1. Female Education Councils
These provide mothers formal avenues of participating in school affairs.
2. School sustainability projects
These aim to increase enrollment, decrease attrition, foster home support for students, and maintain school facilities.
3. Building partnerships with other Community-Based Organizations
4. Provide mentoring and technical advice on job searches & income generation opportunities
1) Capacity-building at the local nonprofit level to manage 100 of 175 DIL schools.
2) Successful partnerships and collaborations such as that between DIL schools and the Pakistan Institute for Environment Development Action Research (PIEDAR) to promote clean water and sanitation, recycling, and tree planting.
