First-ever Federal Foundational Learning Policy launched in Islamabad

The first-ever Federal Foundational Learning Policy was launched in Islamabad today.

The policy is aimed at ensuring all children enrolled in schools under the federal territories to acquire foundational learning skills by 2030. It will apply to all government schools, private schools, non-formal education centers and madaris in Islamabad Capital Territory, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Azad Jammu and Kashmir.

This policy is part of a national movement to improve basic reading and numeracy skills for Pakistan’s children. Each province is in the process of developing its own foundational learning policies.

The event was led by Federal Secretary Mohyuddin Wani, and attended by key development partners, university vice-chancellors, parliamentarians and partner organizations working on education in Pakistan.

The event was hosted by acclaimed author and social activist Ms. Feryal Ali Gauhar.
