PCE is a strong proponent of mobilizing communities in order to identify the barriers in access to quality education. PCE piloted a two pronged initiative in two districts of Pakistan. After the successful launch of the intervention in Ghotki, PCE initiated its second intervention in Jamshoro. In the first phase of the initiative, around 37 schools were surveyed from 2 union councils, namely Shah Awais and Shalmani. Survey forms were put together to determine the enrolment and dropout rates at schools, the funds allocated and their utilization, information regarding SMCs and school facilities. Based on the findings of the baseline report, capacity building training sessions were organized in both UCs. Training modules and handouts were devised to train key stakeholders including SMC members, head teachers and local administration.
