Innovative, affordable, lifelong e-learning – for everyone, anywhere, anytime.
There is a close connection between education and development. PCCF Rupee-a-Day School wants all its students to exceed in life and maintain a learn-work-life balance.
PCCF Rupee-a-Day School educates children globally. PCCF Rupee-a-Day School programs come in a variety of learning formats including online courses, audio and video courses, multimedia homes study programs and live events. These are convenient, affordable and success-oriented programs, easy to understand and retain for children of all ages.
We serve to address the following greatest challenges in global education:
Education Inequalities. A massive number of people on this planet do not have resources that allow them access to education, and a majority of them are children in unprivileged societies.
Those living in South Asia and North-eastern Africa for instance, are the least likely to receive a good education – or any education at all. These areas rank the world’s poorest countries according to their education systems. Somalia has the least functional system in the world with just 10% of children going to primary school. Haiti, Ethiopia, Pakistan fare almost as badly. Pakistan has hit the rock bottom in the educational crisis as almost 40 percent to 50 percent of primary students boasted to be future of the country, can neither read nor write a sentence in Urdu or English. In Haiti, some 2.5 million children were left without a school to go to after the earthquake (2010).
The Rupee-a-Day School is an online education portal addressing this global issue with its highly affordable learning programs.
Inadequate Funding for Education. Money isn’t everything, but it is a key foundation for a successful education system. PCCF Rupee-a-Day School, however, is exceptionally affordable to use.
Lack of Well-trained Teachers. Not only are there not enough teachers globally to achieve universal primary education (let alone secondary), but many of the teachers that are currently working are also untrained, leading to children failing to learn the basics, such as maths and language skills. Globally, the UN estimates that 69 million new teachers are required to achieve universal primary and secondary education by 2030. Meanwhile, in one out of three countries, less than three-quarters of teachers are trained to national standards.
PCCF Rupee-a-Day School is committed to delivering uncompromising quality education. Our courses are filled with proven insight, stories, perspective and advice on how to be successful. We are in constant pursuit of training teachers and developing teacher education programs.
No Classroom. In conventional schools, if we don’t have a classroom, children don’t have much of a chance of getting a decent education. That’s a reality for millions of children worldwide. Children in many countries are often squeezed into overcrowded classrooms or are learning outside.
At PCCF Rupee-a-Day School, the children can learn online at their own pace, from the comfort of their homes or anywhere they are.
Lack of Learning Materials. Outdated and worn-out textbooks are often shared by six or more students in many parts of the world. In Tanzania, for example, only 3.5% of all grade 6 pupils had sole use of a reading textbook. In Cameroon, there are 11 primary school students for every reading textbook. Teachers also need materials to help prepare their lessons, share with their students, and guide their lessons. Likewise for countries like Pakistan, India or Bangladesh.
PCCF Rupee-a-Day School’s online learning portal eliminated by use of paperbound books. Workbooks, exercise sheets, readers and other core materials are all available online to help students learn their lessons.
The Exclusion of Children with Disabilities. Despite the fact that education is a universal human right, being denied access to school is common for the world’s 93 million children with disabilities. In some of the world’s poorest countries, up to 95% of children with disabilities are out of school. A combination of discrimination, lack of training in inclusive teaching methods among teachers, and a straightforward lack of disabled accessible schools leave this group uniquely vulnerable to being denied their right to education.
Through PCCF Rupee-a-Day School, this exclusion can be minimised. All children need is access to the internet and computer.
Being the ‘Wrong’ Gender. One of the biggest reasons why children are denied an education is gender discrimination. Despite recent advances in girls’ education, a generation of young women has been left behind. Over 130 million young women around the world are not currently enrolled in school. At least one in five adolescent girls around the world is denied an education by the daily realities of poverty, conflict, and discrimination. Poverty forces many families to choose which of their children to send to school. Girls often miss out due to the belief that there’s less value in educating a girl than a boy. Instead, they are sent to work or made to stay at home to look after siblings and work on household chores.
Learning online at PCCF Rupee-a-Day School can help reduce this paradigm.
Distance from Home to School. For many children around the world, a walk to school of up to three hours in each direction is not uncommon. This is just too much for many children, particularly those with a disability. Imagine having to set off for school, hungry, at 5 a.m. every day, not to return until 7pm. Many children, especially girls, are also vulnerable to violence on their long and hazardous journeys to and from school.
PCCF Rupee-a-Day School’s online presence greatly reduces this burden as well as traffic congestion during schools hours.
The Expense of Education. In many developed countries, the governments have abolished school fees and as a result, seeing impressive increases in the number of children going to school. But in many developing countries, quality education remains too expensive.
PCCF Rupee-a-Day School facilitates parents in pursuing their child’s education affordably. Moreover, affluent people can participate in our ‘Each-one, teach-one Program’ to help needy families.
