Pakistan: Adoption of Alimiyah Girls School, Karachi
Pakistan Federation of University Women
During 2008 the Pakistan Federation participated in the Government “Adopt a School Programme” and adopted, as its school, the Alimiyah Girls School in Karachi.
The adoption programme involved improving the standard of education of the school concerned and carrying out repairs and renovations to the structure of the school. Pakistan Federation of University Women (PAUW) members supervised student and teacher attendance, monitored teaching skills of staff and organised training programmes for the update of skills. In addition, the school adopted by PFUW required a lot of repairs to furniture and had washrooms in serious need of renovation.
PFUW reported that they were able to renovate two latrines and get a water supply line to the school restored. Unfortunately they were unable to continue with all their planned restoration work as the government de-nationalised the school and it was returned to its previous owners.
