Early Childhood Education Development (ECED) Schools

District of Chitral, North West Frontier Province, Pakistan

In January 2009, WEIF and AL-Noor Mountain Organization Lasht (ANMOL), our NGO partner, initiated the construction of eight Early Childhood Education and Development (ECED) schools in the District of Chitral District of Chitral, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistan. The project was funded through grants from the Canadian International Development Agency and generous contributions from WEIF’s donors and in-kind support provided by local communities, and was completed on schedule in December 2010.

All ECED schools have well-stocked libraries and fully equipped computer labs. A total of 17 ECED school teachers (16 female and 1 male) have successfully completed and obtained certificates in Early Childhood Education provided by the Professional Development Centre, Chitral, a branch of the Aga Khan University (AKU) in Karachi. These teachers are actively involved in providing ECED training and support to other teachers in their communities.

These schools are located in remote mountainous villages: Ovier Lasht, Morder, Garam Chasma, Dolomuts, Lone, Sussom, Safeed Arkari and Bhesti (click here for locations of schools). These schools will serve over 500 students aged between three to five years.
