Public private partnerships can effectively trigger change. This has been demonstrated by SRSP’s collaboration with the District Education Department in Abbottabad and Haripur under the British Council funded Take a Child to School initiative. An event was organized to acknowledge the efforts of the department, which has resulted in enrollment increase by 11,000 children in schools.
50 young people, between 18 to 30 years of age, receive skills enhancement training in electrician and sanitary fitting courses. The group was selected from District Peshawar, Charsadda and Nowshera. The training was organized at SRSP’s Technical & Vocational Center in Peshawar, which offered a certified course from City & Guilds UK. Their team conducted post-training evaluation and certificates were distributed among the best performances. The initiative is funded by the Government of Australia under Women Economic Empowerment and Market Development (WEEMD) project.
