During April 2014, Church World Service –Pakistan/Afghanistan (CWS-P/A) brought twenty-one teachers from public and private organizational schools together for a hands-on learning experience. The five-day workshop at CWS-P/A’s training center in Murree focused on the concepts and ways to effectively implement early childhood education.
Thirteen female and eight male teachers from Sargodha, Gujranwala, Kasur, Islamabad, and Lahore were selected for this workshop based on their interest to learn new skills and ability to provide training to other teachers. They came from either the formal or informal primary education systems. Today’s children face social, political, environmental, and technology issues; therefore, it is important to set up a value system which provides diversified and better learning opportunities.
