The project is effective in the Sirin Valley of Mansehra. The objective of the program was to provide access to schooling for both boys and girls in the earthquake affected areas. The organization implemented 20 emergency schools for boys and girls in the target areas. The schools benefited 1,830 school children with 64 teachers.
This project was implemented between April 2004 June 2005 and was a continuation of the earlier program providing support for increased access to basic education for refugees living in remote areas including improving the capacity of women and vulnerable persons in literacy, MCH and vocational skills through the NFE-VET component. The program supported 470 male and female teachers and an additional 6,100 adults were capacitated with life skills under this extended project.
