Gender and Child Cell (GCC), NDMA, signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Federal Directorate of Education (FDE), on Pakistan School Safety Framework Scale-Up in ICT (Model Pilot) on 30 November, 2017.
National Disaster Management of Pakistan (NDMA) has formulated Pakistan School Safety Framework (PSSF) to strengthen the awareness and preparedness of students, teachers as well as the community at large, regarding hazards and potential risks. PSSF was pretested through a Pilot in 68 schools in all provinces, including ICT, AJK and GB. Owing to its monumental success, NDMA has decided to scale-up the School Safety Programme at the ICT level, which would primarily include PSSF Scale-Up in ICT Model Schools, Private Schools and Madrassas. This PSSF Scale Up will be carried out in 500 schools in two phases of 250 schools each.
