With Telenor Pakistan, the Ministry of Education has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the Taleemabad Model Virtual Schools pilot project, which will be implemented in six public elementary schools.
Through the development of school owners’ and instructors’ skills and the provision of school loans, the programme will be centred on improving the quality of education. More than 500 teachers and school administrators would profit from the project, which will also help 30,000 kids in Southern Punjab.
Yasir Ashfaq, CEO of PMIC, spoke at the event and reiterated the organisation’s commitment to offering financial services to low-cost private schools. PMIC is investing its resources in enhancing instructors’ pedagogical abilities and school owners’ administrative capabilities, which will raise the nation’s educational standards. We are incredibly happy to join Opportunity International on this programme since it is a step in the right direction for PMIC in terms of achieving its triple bottom-line goals. The director of Opportunity Education Finance, Mr Mathieu Fourn, expressed his appreciation for PMIC’s support and revealed the ideas for carrying out such a comprehensive programme.
We are excited for the programme to be implemented in Pakistan after OI exclusively collaborated with PMIC to create this one-of-a-kind initiative, which is currently being successfully run in 7 other countries.
