MOJAZ Foundation understands the emergency for education in Pakistan and hence is taking various initiatives to provide children in the rural areas with this basic right to gain education. The existing situation of the education service delivery in Pakistan is suffering from a host of problems. Although the government is introducing various interventions to improve the access and quality of education, however there is much to be desired. MOJAZ sees its role in organizing and strengthening the communities at grassroots level and building their capacity to take due interest and play an effective role in the management of education; linking them with line agencies and facilitating the service providers to efficiently and effectively deliver the education services. Disability remains the cross cutting theme in every initiative.

Improvement of Quality of education remains one of its main focuses. In this regards, MOJAZ has completed a project funded by Open Society Foundation on improving quality of education in Narrowal taking 10 schools into consideration. The Quality of Education Improvement project started in October 2011 in Narrowal district of Punjab Province. The first year of this project has been completed successfully and is now the second year of improving quality of education in Narrowal is on the roll since October 2012. The objective was to ensure provision of quality education and increase in access by implementing school education improvement plans that focused on an inclusive participatory, highly motivated SMC (consisting of teachers, parents and community members), introducing innovative monitoring of school management through client-tailored MIS, establishing financial sustainability, nurturing public-private partnerships and accountability (particularly with the local government), and extending official recognition to community for their role in making quality education accessible in the local setting.
