For this purpose, SOE has collaborated with various educational organisations, including private school systems, government organisations, and NGOs. These include Beaconhouse School System, Akhuwat Foundation, Syedanwala Secondary School, Programme Implementation and Monitoring Unit (PMIU), Punjab Education Foundation, Punjab Examination Commission, Teach the World, Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi, Maktab, The Citizens Foundation, Progressive Education Network, and Teach for Pakistan. Each organisation has been assigned up to three students who will be working with them over the course of the last semester of their MPhil programme. —PR
