  • Access,
  • Retention
  • Learning achievement, by opening EGS Centers/PS/MS,
  • Engaging Rehber –e – Taleem teachers(ReTs) and Education Volunteers(EVs),
  • Improving infrastructure,
  • Trainings for teachers and community,
  • Providing physical and financial assistance for the education of Girls

In the backdrop of all the efforts, substantial improvements in quality dimensions are witnessed. Enrolment and retention of children in the age group 6-14 years is reaching to the apex. Achievement level of children in curricular areas is raising to the standard.

However, some teachers working in elementary education do not possess the adequate teaching, evaluation and feed-back training which affects the quality education.
