Zindagi Trust’s Director of Academics for the Paid to Learn Programme, Jahanara Shiraz, participated in the Government of Sindh Education & Literacy Department Reform Unit's workshop on strengthening curriculum based teaching and learning linkages/practices in Sindh. The event gave us an opportunity to understand the processes and timelines involved in developing and delivering the national curriculum. It also gave us a platform to share our ideas on improving the national curriculum.
Zindagi Trust has is committed to curriculum reform for the masses. We lobbied the government to allow use of innovative, out-of-syllabus textbooks in a government school for our school reform project. We have also been working on an localized Urdu textbook for Mathematics which will be introduced in Class 1 in government schools across Sindh. We hope to continue to be a part of the dialogue that shapes the development, revision and implementation of the national curriculum.
