Gateway Initiative

DIL’s Gateway Initiative is a three-pronged approach to preparing young people to become productive members of society that includes:

  • life skills development,
  • vocational training, and
  • career exploration.

At select DIL schools, middle and secondary students are learning financial literacy and other life skills. In Orangi and Khairpur we are building bridges of opportunity through work readiness, internships and business entrepreneurship for young adults, and through the DIL Vocational Training Centers, we are providing Computer Literacy and English classes for young women in select communities where DIL schools thrive.

“We have been provided with the best facilities (and) the standard of teaching is quite awesome." Mehnaz, DIL Mehran Junior II student
