pRelief International entered in 2005 after a devastating earthquake where we were among the first organizations to respond. Today our programs focus on improving educational outcomes for vulnerable children. We collaborate with children's, students, parents, teachers, community leaders, and government ministries to enroll Afghan refugee and Pakistani children in the 45 schools we support, working to transform an educational system that suffers from poor graduation rates due to poverty and under-investment. In addition to our focus on the education sector, our past work in Pakistan has included responding to the country’s frequent natural disasters by partnering with local communities to restore livelihoods through sustainable agricultural programs, as well as providing healthcare, life-saving shelter kits, food aid, and cash assistance to families displaced by conflict.
