NCHD re-launches its academic programmes
Karachi: National Commission for Human Development Literacy (NCHD) has once again revived its activities in Sindh province, which earlier had been abolished due to paucity of funds, informed sources in the head office said on Wednesday.
The sources said that NCHD had started working in various parts of interior Sindh, but initially, was not working in Karachi; rather, it was focussing on the deprived and undeveloped parts of interior Sindh. So far as the metropolis is concerned, a lot of NGOs, CDGK and Sindh Govt are already working here on various projects in the education sector. It has provided many opportunities and chances to the citizens in the metropolis. Whereas, the rural parts are at large deprived of such projects. That is why NCHD is at first preferring the deprived and uneducated segment of society in the province and its result is appearing rapidly, an Islamabad based official said.
Sources in the department also mentioned that a total of 1537 centres had been opened in various parts of the city to increase the literacy ratio. While overall in Sindh province, 25,859 centres have been opened and 0.60m people have been educated through those centres.
The prime target of NCHD is to ensure 100 percent enrolment of children aging from 5 to 7 in the country by 2015, while increasing the literacy among the adults as soon as possible. The Nation
