On August 04, 2009, Action Aid’s Education team conducted a strategic review of its own programmes, vis-a -vis their needs and upcoming developments in the education sector of Pakistan. TRC was invited to participate in this policy review, owing mainly to its contribution in curriculum development and policy advocacy. While taking stock of their own work and the current scenario where the National Educational Policy is yet to be finalized (after 3 years of policy formulation), ActionAid identified educational financing, policy review and advocacy for curriculum implementation as well as Early Childhood Education, as its core areas of intervention and support for the next 3 years. Our contribution was deeply appreciated by Action Aid and it was agreed to jointly plan and carry out initiatives for ECE, given TRC’s extensive and long standing work in the sector.
