Community funding for Pakistan schools

Some remote schools in Northern Pakistan use community resources to educate as many children as they can.

    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.

    Al Jazeera’s Imran Khan reports from Gulmit.
