Our Approach

We recruit and train top graduates and young professionals from all fields for a two-year Fellowship during which they teach in under-served areas that lack quality teaching. Fellows work in partnership with schools and communities to improve students’ learning outcomes and broaden their life opportunities.

After completing the Fellowship, our Alumni use their experiences to tackle Pakistan’s most pressing problems in education, such as rewriting textbooks and curricula, testing innovations, furthering research, training teachers and creating model schools.
