PESHAWAR: To eradicate child labour and offer education to the underprivileged children, the University of Peshawar (UoP) has decided to offer free education to them in its constituent schools - the University Public School and University Model School. A memorandum of understanding was signed between the UoP and PLAN International on Monday.
The MoU was signed by UoP Vice-Chancellor Dr Rasul Jan and Country Manager of PLAN International, Farah Naz.
It will remain effective for three years wherein the partner organisations will explore potential mutual beneficial research and community based projects.
The key component of the agreement would include student orientation, training of PLAN staff in social research, knowledge sharing and internship for the students of the Department of Sociology.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Rasul Jan said that it pained him to see a child doing some labour to earn bread and butter for his family instead of studying.
Farah Naz said her organisation worked with different partners for the rights of the children and youth.
