Partner: Affiliated Network for Social Accountability – South Asia Region (ANSA-SAR)
Locale: Hansa Coloney, Alipur and Farash Town (Islamabad)

This project has been described in detail in an earlier section on education. The M&E Unit’s contribution was huge in that it screened three communities i.e. Hansa Coloney, Alipur and Farash Town to locate dropped out children and their families. More than 3000 households were screen in this survey. After screening, dropped out children and their parents were interviewed to explore causes of drop out. To make a fair comparison, an equal number of school going children and their parents were interviewed. In addition teachers and managers were also interviewed from public schools.
