Islamabad—Following the government’s drive to enroll maximum number of Out-of-School-Children (OOSC) from April 01 to 30, a team of the National University of Modern Languages (NUML) teachers and volunteers has once again surveyed Kachi Abadis here spotting more than 300 OOSC.
The Higher Education Commission has given comprehensive guidelines to the universities for enrolment of the out of school children.
To sensitize the faculty and students about this important issue, NUML organized a walk on April 21st. The main theme of the walk was National Enrolment Drive and the message conveyed to the participants was “Let’s Eradicate Illiteracy”.
NUML is proud to have already pioneered in this field by formally launching this educational campaign in November 2015 under the kind patronage of the worthy Rector NUML, Maj Gen Zia Uddin NajamHI(M) (Retd).
Prior to start of this project, a team of the NUML teachers carried out a detailed survey of KachiAbadis around the NUML for over two months.
Presently, NUML is successfully running two programs(NUML Adoption Programme (NAP) and Charagh-e-Badr) to contribute to the eradication of illiteracy. Under the NAP,130 children studying at G-12, Islamabad have already been adopted. Similarly, there are 30 children enrolled with Charagh-e-Badr who are seeking formal education within the NUML premises and they are being provided with free pick and drop facility, uniform, lunch,and a monthly trip to zoo/play land.
To meet the financial needs, the NUML has already established a Zakat Fund which has been a great help so far in terms of the sustainability of NUML Adoption Programme (NAP) and Charagh-e-Badr.
