KARACHI: At least 52 ghost schools were discovered Friday across different districts in Sindh including Larkana, Hyderabad, Dadu, Tharparkar, Sanghar and Mirpur Khas.
According to reports, the Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) had allocated Rs50 million to these ghost schools which were under the supervision of various non-governmental organisations (NGO’s) and the private sector. SEF is a public-private partnership institution providing funds to schools in areas where there are no government educational institutes.
Moreso, the funds allocated had either not been utilised properly or the schools did not exist.
Managing director SEF Naheed Durrani said that she has written a letter to the anti-corruption department to take action against these schools and to recover the funds.
