PEF kicks off Drive to Promote Quality Education’
Lahore : 18 September : Managing Director Punjab Education Foundation (PEF) Nawazish Ali has said that PEF had started a comprehensive campaign to promote quality education at the grassroots so that no one was left uneducated.

“We have planned to bring back 4 million youth of six to 16 years of age to schools which will work in coordination with Punjab Education Foundation.
It would be the biggest drive against illiteracy. It is hoped that illiteracy will completely be rooted out from the province as a result of education sector reforms of the Punjab government.”

PEF was given Rs 7.5 billion during the current fiscal year to promote gratis education and this would illuminate the society with the light of education in every nook and corner of the province.
Nawazish Ali said that Punjab government’s school enrolment drive was proving effective and useful for the poor communities, as it has rekindled hope in them. He told that more than 5.7 million boys and 4.8 million girls had been enrolled in Punjab government schools as a result of this enrolment drive.
