In Northern Pakistan, there are many successful schools dotted around remote regions that rely on community resources. They do not use government funds.
In a country where educational system is in crisis and only half of the adults can read, these schools focus on educating as many of the young residents as they can.
Al Aymn in the village of Gulmit is one of these schools.
