Alif Foundation is a leading voice in the education sector. Our education program has the overall goal of increasing access to quality education, especially for vulnerable groups of children. Our work focuses on ensuring that children and their parents are able to play a full and active role in school governance. This results in the improvement of the learning environment for boys and girls in both early childhood learning centers and primary schools.
In addition, our programs increase the access to quality education for marginalized children. We collaborate with communities to construct classrooms, train teachers and provide learning materials, as well as conducting extensive awareness-raising work on the importance of education. Teachers and community members are also provided with training so they are able to provide psychosocial support and promote a healthy, violence-free environment within families and communities.
In education, we seek to develop human capital by providing literacy and math skills for adults, encouraging school enrollment and attendance among children, especially girls, and by improving educational infrastructure.
