Basic Education for Awareness, Reforms and Empowerment / Basic Education for Afghan Refugees is a transformation of a bilateral project agreed between the governments of Islamic Republic of Pakistan and Federal Republic of Germany for sustainable development in basic education. The transformation into a local NGO in 2003 though the Trust Act 1882 and then in 2006 through the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1880, broadened its scope and horizon. With more than 15 years of experience in NWFP, FATA and recently in the Punjab, BEFARe has actively worked with Pakistan’s federal, provincial and local government departments and structures to successfully implement multi-sectoral programs in education, health, governance, energy conservation, democratization and others, with the support of German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), European Commission (EC), World Bank, World Vision – Pakistan, South Asia Regional Initiative / Energy and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), International Labor Organization(ILO), CIDA(PIF), The Asia Foundation, UNICEF, UNESCO and others. BEFARe also supports organizations in the province of Baluchistan and coordinates its activities with other agencies in Punjab
