Integrated Education Learning Program


The Integrated Education Learning Program (IELP) is the Foundation's largest scheme which aims establishing public private partnerships for increasing access to and improving the quality of education (Primary, Elementary and Secondary) services for children across Sindh.

The quality inputs largely focus on grassroots capacity building in school management and administration, improving the learning environment in schools through professional development of teachers and provision of learning resources for meaningful teaching-learning activities for children.

IELP endeavours to shift the paradigm of SEF partner from a profit-orientated approach to education-oriented one. SEF’s vision of quality education transcends access to basic schooling and improving literacy rates. It strives to develop and implement viable models of education, through public private and community partnerships, which are contextually relevant to the local needs and which directly contribute to the sustainable development of the communities being served.
