Lahore—Punjab Education Foundation (PEF) has equitably provided free quality educational facilities to the children of low income families at their doorsteps so that they may remain safe from transport problems arising due to lack of resources.
MD PEF Tariq Mahmood said this while presiding over the weekly coordination meeting of program directors at his office on Thursday. Program directors, along with relevant officers of different departments, attended the meeting.
The meeting dilated upon the state of school education in the province and the strong role played by the foundation in strengthening the private sector through different public private partnership interventions. It was agreed upon that educational partnership with PEF has benefited the low cost schools to improve their academic standards. This has also benefited the students to get education free of cost.
The participants said that PEF’s role in the success of three year long ‘Parho Punjab, Barho Punjab’ is very pivotal as it has made education first priority of the indigent strata. More than two million students in PEF partner schools are valuable asset of the society.
