Background of RIDA Center:
Upon identifying the problem of getting affordable and quality education in Basti Mahni Sial – Khanewal (Pakistan), The NGO World supported local youth for establishing RIDA Center for Girls Education and Training under its Youth Social Entrepreneurship Program. Before that this area with a population of almost 30,000 people, was deprived of any higher education institution for girls. Now the girls of the area are benefiting from the services of the educational and training center and are thankful to The NGO World.
