A school for 250 girls
In July 2010, torrential monsoon rains caused flooding, mudslides and landslides in northwest Pakistan.
The Swat valley in northern Pakistan was hit particularly hard. Here, together with Malteser International, WACKER’s relief fund supported reconstruction of an elementary school for 250 girls with a donation of €50,000.
Safe and Suitable for Children
The school was destroyed and the children had to attend class in the open air, even during the winter. The new school reopened just under two years after the disaster. The new building is designed to better withstand environmental influences. Bathroom facilities suited to the needs of children and a better supply of drinking water make everyday school life easier.
