Client: DFID/Education Fund for Sindh

Project Description: DFID funded Education Fund for Sindh in order to identify the Out-of-School Children in Karachi and register them for enrolment in low cost private schools (LCPS). For the Education Fund for Sindh, VTT team was actively involved in identifying, registering and enrolling out-of-school children and low-cost-private-schools in various districts across Sindh.  VTT identified and enrolled 16,000+ out-of-school children in 21 UCs of Karachi.

In addition, VTT mapped the Union Councils and identified slum areas; met the elders and influential personalities of that area and mobilized the concept of the project. Parallel to these activities, a team was working on school mapping in the shortlisted slum areas. They identified all schools (government and private) and finalized the Low Cost Private Schools (LCPS); conducted rapid assessment of all LCPS schools and then detailed assessment of shortlisted schools to make sure that selected schools comply to the minimum standards set by EFS.
