Child-Friendly Schools in Punjab - Bringing Quality Education to Government Primary Schools
UNICEF supports the Child-Friendly School Project in Punjab, Pakistan's largest province, to improve enrolment and retention in primary school, especially for girls, by creating a supportive and child-oriented environment. While net enrolment in Punjab is 64 per cent and 62 per cent for boys and girls respectively, attendance and retention are low, as are learning achievements. Working with the Lahore-based Ali Institute, UNICEF piloted 150 schools in six districts in 2004, increasing to 300 schools in 2008.
