Revolutionizing Rural Education: Sindh Singhar Initiative

Empowering Minds, Enriching Communities


Welcome to Sindh Singhar Initiative Schools, which are built on the belief that every child deserves access to quality education. Our journey began amidst the COVID-19 pandemic when founders, Shirin and Shahab Husain, driven by a need to make a difference, embarked on a mission to bring education to the remote villages of Sindh.

History & Establishment

Our story began with a three-month pilot project launched in December 2020, amidst the wilderness of Haleji Lake, at a village called Darya Khan Goth. Starting with just 25 children and one teacher, the project focused on education as a means of transformation. With a 90% success rate in terms of student attendance, teacher commitment, and community support, it was clear that we were on the right path.

Inspired by this success, we established the Darya Khan Goth School on June 7, 2021, with 30 students.

Founders & Team

The Husains are supported by a dedicated team of ten teachers, a monitoring officer, a coordinator, five community leaders all committed to enhancing the educational landscape of rural Sindh.

Approach and Values

At Sindh Singhar Schools, we focus on high quality elementary education with Urdu as medium of instruction using Sindh Textbook Board books as well as android tablets with self-learning gamified apps. Additionally we ensure the creation of a vibrant learning environment with storybooks, self-corrective worksheets, posters/charts, and outdoor playgrounds.

We welcome students of all genders, religions, and ages between  4-14 years. The plan is to take them from beginner level to grade 5 in four years. Our focus is on elementary education. With monthly tests, a year-end exam, and parent-teacher meetings, we aim to foster a culture of accountability and continuous learning. Teacher development forms a core part of our mission, with extensive efforts made to enhance their academic knowledge, teaching skills, and empathy.
