On 8 February 2008, a delegation from Punjab led by Ms. Baela Raza Jamil, Chairperson, Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi (ITA) and EDO Education, Faisalabad visited TRC. The visiting delegation consisted of 11 educationists from the Institute of Learning, District Education Office and Strategic Policy Unit, City District Government Faisalabad and ITA.

TRC’s representative made a formal presentation on the philosophy, activities and experiences of the organisation. The main thrust of the discussion was concerned with TRC’s experiences in Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) over the years, because the prime objective of the visit was to gain insights into PPP experiences. The group members were inspired by TRC’s policy dialogue regarding the National ECE Curriculum.

The group was then shown the library and TRC’s learning resources. They showed a keen interest in TRC’s materials. They were given a copy of our latest issue of Ilm o Amal and two research studies namely a KAP Study on Childrearing Practices and The Story of School Improvement. The group members especially the EDO, Education and DOE (Women) Elementary Education showed their interest to work with TRC and intend to send a formal request to TRC in this regard.
