Our local partner in Pakistan is Faisal Public School Multan. It is located on the outskirts of Multan in the Punjab Province of Pakistan, in a rural area where there is a considerable need for teacher training. The goal is that teachers who have previously participated in the programme will eventually become ‘local supervisors’, managing a big part of the training by themselves. As part of the teacher training programme, local workshops have been arranged by the school in order to spread new knowledge in the local area, together with government and civil society.
Faisal Public School Multan was founded in 1986 and is registered by the Ministry of Education. The school focuses specifically on ‘learning for all’, with a particular focus on women’s rights and reaching out to the wider community. Regular activives organized by the school involve programmes designed to educate students and teachers about important development issues such as health, nutrition, environment, and sanitation. They also offer practical recreational activies for students, such as arts and crafts, which are integrated into the school subjects. Scholarships are offered to poor students who are unable to afford the education costs.
