Minawar Girls High School
The department of Education of Gilgit-Baltistan gave permission to Outliers International to temporarily use a vacant building for the girls high school classroom. The building was once a government owned primary boys school and was severely damaged during the 2005 earthquake.
During 2013, Outliers International staff and community volunteers renovated and repaired the building to provide 9th grade education to 23 girls.
The goal for 2014 is to build a new classroom to accommodate the incoming 10th graders, as well as a building for a science lab and a library.

Information On The Region
Minawar Girls Middle School was established by Outliers International in September 2010. Prior to that, girls in Minawar did not have access to post primary school education. The Girls Middle School currently has an enrollment of 49 girls attending the 6th, 7th and 8th year grade levels.
In 2012, the Pakistan regional board of education took full ownership of the Minawar Girls Middle School, thereby guaranteeing the sustainability of girl’s education in Minawar for grades 6th through 8th.
