KARACHI - Representatives from private sector schools participated in an advocacy event organised by the Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) to highlight its pioneering “Adopt-a-School Programme”.
SEF Managing Director Prof Anita Ghulam Ali and Director Aziz Kabani introduced the school adoption process, highlighting areas of quality enrichment for enhancing students’ learning outcomes.
Contributions were invited through the donation of time, expertise and resources for improving school environment and implementing child-centered pedagogy at government schools.
The potential adopters and the SEF management had a candid interactive discussion where all questions regarding the dynamics and the process of school adoptions were explored and answered. The attendees inquired about the level of commitment involved in such an endeavor and the SEF management responded that nurturing the future of these children does require dedication but the rewards of changing lives on such a scale has few substitutes. The SEF urged the private sector to do its part in helping the marginalised but to undertake the venture with responsibility and conscientiousness. Diverse segments of society, including citizens concerned, social agencies, educationists and private sector organisations were represented at the forum.
