DEWA-UNICEF Accelerated Learning Programme
UNICEF supported us through the Accelerated Learning Programme (ALP) to provide further eduction for our students. Through this programme, which is being funded by the Government of the Netherlands, nearly 11,000 children between the ages of 9 to 13 years have been enrolled in schools. These are children who had either dropped out or were never enrolled in a school ever before.
“Mathematics is my favourite subject,” says Amanullah (10), a student at one of the UNICEF-supported ALP centres in village Killi Nasirabad. “When the teacher comes to our classroom, we say Good Morning Teacher; and when we need to drink water, we ask for it in English. This is what I like the most as very few people in our community can speak English. I can!”
