On 30 October 2007, 27 officials paid a visit to the TRC premises to be acquainted with and learn more about the work we do. The visiting delegation consisted of men and women from the AJK Education Department, Unicef and the Aga Khan Development Network. Members of AKU-IED facilitated the visit. The visitors were given a short presentation on the philosophy, activities and future goals of TRC by the TRC Team.
The officials from AJK were thoroughly impressed by all that TRC has achieved in the last 21 years. They engaged with the material presented and asked many questions. The presentation ended with a lively group discussion about issues and problems faced by teachers in the public sector and officials in education departments in general. The discussion closed with excitement and eagerness to bring about substantial and sustainable change in education provision in Pakistan.
The group was then shown the library and resource room. They were each given a copy of our latest issue of Ilm O Amal, our bi-annual publication for teachers. The visit ended with a demonstration of ‘Nazmon ki Dilchasp Duniya’ one of our popular learning resources. They were extremely inspired by it and expressed a keen desire to work with us in the future.
