PEP is excited this year to have conversations about selecting more female teachers for our schools in Sindh. The purpose for involving more female teachers is to promote female voice in decision making for children as being a member of the School Management Committee (SMC) , and giving them a platform to work alongside equally with men for education.
Extending Aflateen Project!
PEP is in the next phase of guiding the youth in the Aflateen Programme. The PEP Aflateen Training which is due in February will have lots of benefits for the youth because the theme of the training will be "Career Counselling", and the youth students will have a chance to explore their skills and have conversations about what they can do in life. Aflateen’s mission is ‘to inspire socially- and economically- empowered young people to lead responsible lives and be agents of change.’
Welcoming Adult Literacy Classes in Women's Empowerment Programme!
Women's Empowerment Programme (WEP) is excited to start Adult Literacy classes from February and this is the beginning of a great future impact on the women of rural Sindh. PEP is especially celebrating this news as Adult Literacy came as a decision from the Women's Empowerment Programme requiring it as their need for learning to read and write. We are delighted to provide them the facility to start this programme for creating a greater change in their lives.
Aflatoun Inclusive For Non- Enrolled Children!
From this year the PEP Aflatoun Coordinator (Purkho Raj) is working to take Aflatoun on a further level to make the project inclusive for non- enrolled children in rural Sindh. Aflatoun started out as a programme for the students who were enrolled in PEP schools, but this initiative demonstrates the commitment of Aflatoun programme to reach out to other children for an even greater impact!
