- the acclerated learning component focuses on improvong learning outcomes for children who are out of school or drop pout Internally displaced girls and than an aim of admitting them to formal school, according to their age.
- The cirriculum of non-formal schooling is designed by governmnet at TVET (The technical and vocational education training department of government) which can be used along with the organisation's own curriculum that it developed for another accelerated learning program that was operational in Sindh province of Pakistan for 5 years. The program was called Chalo Parho barho.
- The feasibility was addressed at the phase of community interaction and desirability was seen within the community.
- The government of KP (the selected province for intervention) is working in close collabortion with our organisation and schools that are govt owned can be utilised for these centres.
- the cost of this project is estimated to be around US $100,000 for one cycle of the program. A break down can be provided by finance team if required.
- the security of schools has been already increased in Pakistan under the National Action plan and this issue can further be addressed by government.
- the location of camps are chosen on basis of TDP concentration.
