    Organizational structure: Bunyad Literacy Community Council (BLCC) is a Non-governmental, non- political and non-profit NGO founded in 1994 by a group of like- minded persons who wanted to make a difference in alleviating poverty and empowering the people through literacy. Conceived first as a project involving networking of NGO for the promotion of literacy in Hafizabad district, the program led to the realization of the critical issues of non- attendance of formal schools by girls, the need for quality education as an essential ingredient in assisting the country to reach the EFA (Education for all) goal. Bunyad sought to deliver education to girls in the rural areas through non-Formal methodology and developed a non- formal education project. The schools established under the project were known as ILM NFPE centres and were supported by UNICEF starting with literacy and education in one district Bunyad has gradually expanded both in geographical areas of operation as well as the field of its activities. It is presently active in 500 UC�s of the province of Punjab and particularly in more than 5000 villages and its programs, in addition to literacy and non-formal education, include projects in such diverse fields as child labour, women empowerment for poverty alleviation, saving and micro credit community development, integrated farming and sanitation, health, reproductive health and environment.
