This project was started to rehabilitate schools in DG Khan which were destroyed during the heavy floods in 2010.In order to avoid disruption in education in Habit Mastui, Nur Foundation started providing non-formal education to the students immediately after the floods.
In December 2011, from the 21st to the 24th,Nur Foundation Education Team visited Habit Mastui Schools in Dera Ghazi Khan. This time, the team had formulated an agenda to be carried out in the schools being visited. Highlight of the agenda was a special promotion policy for the talented students of Habit Mastui School DG Khan. In this policy, about 28 students of level first and 25 students of level prep were promoted to the next level after a formal assessment.
For the rest of the students, routine midterm assessments were conducted in all Nur schools. About 1500 students appeared in the exams. This assessment was especially helpful for those students who were to appear in the primary and secondary Punjab board examinations in February and March 2012.
Other important aspects included in the agenda were a monitoring and evaluation of the project, formal training session with the teachers on class room management, meeting with the members of community based organization and community members and distribution of stipends, stationary, books, sweaters and warm clothes to all the students enrolled in Nur schools in Habit Mastui.
Flood affected children are receiving quality education primarily because of your support and funds. Students in DG Khan and Nur Foundation are extremely thankful to their donors who made non-formal schooling possible. This, however is for the time being until enough funding is collected to rebuild schools and rehabilitate formal system of education in Habit Mastui region of DG Khan, Pakistan.Attachments:
