EGM believes that education makes a world of difference. Education is the key to tackling poverty, improving health and building brighter futures. Through education, and training the individuals can use skills to transform their own lives and communities.
Practical skills to address real-life problems are central to all our projects.
Our work involves practical education and training, with literacy at the heart. By literacy we mean more than just the skills of reading, writing and numeracy; we see literacy as a tool for transformation under a broad definition which embraces other resources. We believe:-
“Literacy at all levels should be functional – participants learn better when topics are based on their experiences, needs and interests.”
Who we work with
We work where we can have the most impact and this is the place called Youhanabad, Lahore which is the most torment place on the face of the earth. It is the biggest Christian population in Asia but neglected one by the Government. Here, people are suffers due many things and among them is that here is no government established educational institutions. So, people have to seek education from private educational schools etc. Many non private, nonprofit org like us are working with deep sympathy for our community.
Working in partnership
All of our projects are run in partnership with community-based organizations. We combine their local knowledge and our educational GRANTS for schools and SCHOLARSHIPS for individuals. We strengthen our institutions and individuals to serve their community. Education has the power to transform a whole community. For example, becoming aware of their rights and those of others can help communities to tackle injustice and promote fairer, peaceful societies.
