December 2018
November 2022

Given the large scale of Out-of-school (OOS) girls in Pakistan, ACTED has planned an integrated education programme, which aims to simultaneously address physical, quality-related, socio-cultural, family/community level and system level barriers to accessing schooling for girls. Spanning 4 years (Dec 2018 – Nov 2022), ACTED, in coordination with consortium partners, will target areas in Sindh and FATA, reaching a total of 5,500 beneficiaries including 4,400 girls who have never been to school and 1, 100 girls who dropped out. Multiple cohorts of Accelerated Learning Programmes (ALP), literacy and numeracy trainings and skills training will be facilitated, supplemented with community demand creation activities.
