Upgradation Of Schools

KnK Japan actively supports the upgradation of schools in alignment with Education Department. By providing crucial infrastructure across KP Province, we bridge educational transitions, enhance learning opportunities, and significantly contribute to the reduction of out-of-school Children, fostering increased enrollment and retention rates.

Empowering Educational Upgradation

Bridging Educational Transitions

The schools supported by us have not only met the needs of the E&SE Department KP Province in term of upgradation but have also made significant contributions to improving the transition rate of students from primary to middle level, middle to high level, and high level to higher secondary level. This has ultimately reduced the number of out-of-school girls aged 9 to 16 years, fostering increased enrollment and retention rates.

Alternate Learning Pathways


Empowering Girls Through Alternate Learning Pathways Centers (ALPs)

Cooperation Agency (JICA), KnK Japan proudly introduces the ALPs project, establishing vital learning centers in the remote regions of Karg Allai and Bateela Allai within District Battagram. These centers cater to the educational needs of girls facing various challenges, ensuring they can continue their post-primary education.

The ALPs project pioneers a condensed 18-month curriculum, allowing girls to attain their lower secondary school certificate efficiently. Tailored to their needs, this pilot program accelerates educational progress for girls who have encountered obstacles in their learning journey.

Partnership with AIOU

Examinations conducted by Allama Iqbal Open University, Islamabad, mark the successful completion of education for ALPs participants. The university’s involvement not only assesses and acknowledges their achievements but also enhances the program’s credibility.

Building Livelihoods

ALPs goes beyond formal education, providing practical skills to empower girls for future livelihoods. Focused on sustainability, the program ensures that graduates possess the necessary skills and capabilities for meaningful and sustainable employment.
