Teachers hold the future of our children in their hands. The responsibility for shaping our country’s future rests on their shoulders. Yet we know very little about the challenges they face and the support they require to do their jobs properly.
This World Teachers’ Day, we salute the men and women who have dedicated their lives to educating Pakistan’s children.
Starting on October 3, we celebrate our nation’s great teachers. Over the coming weeks we will explore in depth the work that teachers do and the hurdles they overcome to make sure that every child in their care receives a quality education.

MEESAQ-E-ILM - BY TEACHERS, FOR TEACHERS
On 26 December 2013, for the first time in the country’s history, nearly 400 teachers from government schools across Pakistan gathered in Islamabad to talk about education reform.
The Qaumi Asataza Conference 2013 (National Teachers’ Conference) brought together government teachers, politicians, educationists and religious scholars to discuss new ways to address an old and intractable problem. Meesaq-e-Ilm, a charter of knowledge co-drafted by representatives of teachers’ unions and senior educationists and supported by Alif Ailaan was introduced and endorsed by the delegates at the conference.
