The Government of Sindh signed a Letter of Understanding (LoU) between SELD & Alight Pakistan (NGO) for the extension of Radio Schools in six more districts of the province.
Radio School, as a fragment of SESP&R-2019-24, will provide an alternative learning pathway to Out-of-School-Children (OOSC) & give support to formal classroom students by developing a comprehensive learning repository.
The LoU was signed virtually by SPM-RSU, Mr Altaf H. Sario and Country Representative Alight, Dr Tariq H. Cheema.
Mr Hanif Channa, CPM-RSU, while appreciating the initiative, said that the Radio School would be extended to other districts as well.
Under the LoU, Alight will provide the tailored teaching content for Grade/Class 1 to V Children in Districts Noushero Feroz, Ghotki, Jacobabad, Dadu, Tharparkar and Malir.
It was further agreed that the content would be based on National Curriculum and Sindh Text Book Board.
Initially, the language of the transmission will be Urdu; however, the Sindhi language transmission will also be included after the availability of sufficient content.
The Radio School will broadcast the content for two hours regularly on Medium Wave, FM 101, FM 94 and FM 93.
Tailored content for Grade 1-III will be aired from 10:00 am to 11:00 am and content for Grade IV-V will be aired from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon.
