Sindh Education and Literacy Department signed memorandum of understanding with Charter for Compassion and Institute of Business Administration, Sukkur.
The two private entities will manage the first group of schools constructed under the Sindh Basic Education Programme by the US Agency for International Development (USAID). Under the programme, USAID is constructing 106 schools in Khairpur, Sukkur, Dadu, Kamber-Shahdadkot, Kashmore-Kandhkot, Jacobabad and Larkana as well as in five towns of Karachi.
“We not only trained teachers, but launched incentives programmes to encourage parents to send their daughters to school,” said Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah while addressing the ceremony. Female students were given Rs2,500 in remote rural areas, he added.
