CURRENT PROJECT

Educating One Million Out-Of-School Children

Alight Pakistan and Government of Pakistan through Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training are implementing the largest-ever countrywide program in collaboration with Educate A Child (EAC) programme, a global initiative of Education Above All Foundation (EAA), Qatar, to enroll one million Out-Of-School Children (OOSC) in Pakistan.

Through its strategic partners including provincial education departments, National Commission for Human Development (NCHD), Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) and other civil society organizations, Alight Pakistan is implementing this three years program in 56 districts of Pakistan where 816,329 out-of-school children aged 6-16 have been enrolled as of December 2019.

Alight Pakistan believes that though enrolling “one million OOSC in Pakistan” is an ambitious task, only a programme of such magnitude will make a considerable difference in a country that hosts world’s second largest group of OOSC. Alight believes that only collaborative efforts of public, private, development sector and philanthropists can enable Pakistan to reduce the burden of OOSC.

In order to further the cause of strengthening education systems, Alight Pakistan has also developed partnerships with various donors and civil society organizations for continuous investment in the education sector.
