Education: Afghan refugees studying in refugee villages



Islamabad: In line with our global education policy which encourages the adoption of the host country’s education curriculum, the UN refugee agency has decided to use the Pakistani curriculum in refugee village schools. The decision has been taken due to the protracted nature of the Afghan refugee situation, where the use of the host country’s curriculum constitutes both the most sustainable and the most cost-effective option.

UNHCR believes that the quality of learning for Afghan refugee children in Pakistan will be improved by following the curriculum of Pakistan, particularly at the primary level, with better access to qualified teaching staff and learning materials. Refugee children will receive government of Pakistan certificates demonstrating their proficiency at primary, secondary and college levels. These certificates will enable them to obtain admission in professional colleges or universities in Pakistan or Afghanistan.

Refugee students will obtain accredited examination and certification that will enable them to continue their higher education or compete for employment in both Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Pakistani curriculum uses English as the medium of instruction for all subjects except Urdu language and Islamic studies. Learning English also has the potential to open other opportunities for work and study, including scholarships for Afghan refugees.

Uber Introduces Caller Anonymization as Part of a New Safety Toolkit



Uber today announced the new Safety Toolkit which, over the next few weeks, will be rolled out to the millions of riders, drivers and couriers using the app across Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Pakistan. The toolkit will introduce new innovative features which aim to raise the bar on safety and increase transparency and accountability for all users.

Since launching the app, Uber has provided millions of people with technology that allows them to get a ride at the push of a button, track every trip with GPS technology and report any issues 24/7 with a dedicated safety team. With the introduction of new safety features, the company aims to double down on safety and help make the Uber community safer.

-Features that will be introduced as part of the new rider and driver safety toolkit, include:
  • Emergency button – With the push of a button in the app, riders and drivers/couriers can connect directly to local police when needed.
  • Trusted Contacts – Riders can more easily share their trip with up to five contacts and customize their trip sharing preferences.
  • Safety Centre – A new app-housed safety information hub where users can find information on insurance, our community guidelines, safety tips built with law enforcement and more.
  • Share Trip – Drivers can easily share their location and trip status with family and friends
  • Caller anonymization – Riders and drivers will be able to call each other while maintaining the privacy of their number while using Uber

“There’s nothing more critical than the safety of the people we serve. With about 15 million trips happening on the Uber app each day, we are putting safety at the heart of everything we do. That means working to help improve safety and developing innovative products that aim to increase transparency and accountability for all users on the app. We’re proud to begin rolling out this new safety toolkit with the aim to double down on safety in our app and helping all users stay safe and connected throughout their journeys,” says Sachin Kansal, Uber’s Global Head of Safety Product. 

Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has made safety a top priority for 2018. Since joining the company, he has introduced a number of changes including limits on the amount of time a driver spends on trip and driver insurance. In Pakistan, Uber organized safety sessions with law enforcement agencies for partner-drivers.

Uber Pakistan teamed up with Kashf Foundation in a bid to educate driver partners in Pakistan on how to refrain from inappropriate behavior to recognize and prevent unsuitable actions, titled ‘Dignity at Work’, this training is a part of Uber’s global initiative to help prevent harassment of any kind. Driving hours limit has been introduced to make roads safer for both drivers and riders. Uber also announced an insurance product for all driver-partners called ‘Injury Protection’.

Key to the product is the ability for drivers to be protected from the financial cost of injury, including medical expenses and lost earning opportunities up to certain limits if an accident takes place while driving on the Uber app. To encourage the use of helmets for riders and drivers on uberMOTO, Uber also conducted the ‘Ride for Safety’ events across Pakistan.

HBL President comments on Pakistan’s dialogue with the IMF, CPEC and Digitalization

Bali, Indonesia: Mr. Muhammad Aurangzeb was invited as the only CEO representative of the Pakistani banking sector in order to share his views in his capacity as the President & CEO of HBL. It is pertinent to mention that Muhammad Aurangzeb is the only CEO from Pakistan as well as the only Pakistani who has accepted an invite to join the membership of the exclusive Global CEO Council organized and managed by the Dow Jones Group/Wall Street Journal.

In an interview with Bloomberg on the sidelines of the IMF/World Bank annual meetings, the HBL President & CEO, Mr. Muhammad Aurangzeb introspected that Pakistan's Government has some difficult decisions to make in order to narrow the fiscal deficit and come up with solutions that encourage an increase in exports and the tax base of the country. He pointed out: “With dwindling reserves a breathing space is required...that is where the IMF comes in." He further added: “The devaluation will ultimately help exports and Pakistan. In order for government policies to become sustainable in the long run, he stated that "...made-in-Pakistan and an export based model is the way forward."



Speaking on China's One Belt One Road initiative, he pointed out that CPEC stands out as its flagship in terms of investment being made in Pakistan's energy sector, roads and other infrastructure projects which have also benefited Pakistan and in the medium to long term these projects will boost Pakistan's exports and ultimately pay back and create a long term positive effect on the balance of payments. He further stated: "A lot of these projects should be invoiced in RMB and settled in RMB especially energy projects which should not be based on a Dollar index but a RMB index which is a wonderful opportunity for Pakistan to diversify." Furthermore, he added that "HBL is the only Pakistani bank which has a physical presence in China". 

With regard to the future and digitalization he emphasized, "HBL thinks of itself as an IT company with a banking license”.

زبردست اردو شاعری :  آندھی چلی تو نقش کف پا نہیں ملا

زبردست اردو شاعری : آندھی چلی تو نقش کف پا نہیں ملا

آندھی چلی تو نقش کف پا نہیں ملا
 دل جس سے مل گیا وہ دوبارہ نہیں ملا
 آواز کو تو کون سمجھتا کہ دور دور
 خاموشیوں کا درد شناسا نہیں ملا
 بجھ گیا شام حرم باب کلیسا نہ کھلا
 گل گئے زخم کے لب تیرا دریچہ نہ کھلا
 چلے تو کٹ ہی جائے گا سفر آہستہ آہستہ
 ہم اُس کے پاس جاتے ہیں مگر آہستہ آہستہ
 گریہ تو اکثر رہا پیہم رہا
پھر بھی دل کے بوجھ سے کچھ کم رہا
 دیوانے کو تکتی ہیں تیرے شہر کی گلیاں
 نکلا تو اِدھر لوٹ کے بدنام نہ آیا
 مت پوچھ کہ ہم ضبط کی کس راہ سے گزرے
 یہ دیکھ کہ تجھ پر کوئی الزام نہ آیا
 میں کس کے ہاتھ پہ اپنا لہو تلاش کروں
 تمام شہر نے پہنے ہوئے ہیں دستانے
انہیں پتھروں پہ چل کر اگر آ سکو تو آئو
 میرے گھر کے راستے میں کوئی کہکشاں نہیں ہے
 قدم قدم پہ تمنائے التفات تو دیکھ
 زوال عشق میں سوداگروں کا ہاتھ تو دیکھ

LSO Conference - PPAF Financing Sustainable Development and Community Building in Balochistan

Quetta: The Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) held a half-day conference in Quetta for developing strong linkages between duty bearers and community institutions in Balochistan. The objective was to empower Local Support Organisations (LSOs) to strengthen socio-economic development through PPAF’s Tabeer-o-Tameer Fund initiative. The project supports the development of community driven institutions through consistent financial and technical support, in order to facilitate initiatives for sustainable development in Balochistan.



The LSO conference was attended by government officials from Balochistan including; Secretary Environment, Mr. Saboor Kakar, Secretary Education, Mr. Noor Ul Haq, Director General, Research, Agriculture, Balochistan, Dr. Javed Tareen, and Chief Engineer, Planning and Design PHE Department Mr. Javed Ahmad.

Mr. Tahir Malik, General Manger – Institution, PPAF, Innovation and Integration, welcomed the participants and shared the progressive role of community institutions in the development of society. He highlighted the opportunities that the PPAF’s Tabeer-o-Tameer Fund is offering to help strengthen local communities at the grass roots.

LSO representatives shared the progress and development plan with the provincial administration for sustainable development in their respective areas.

Addressing the conference, Honorable Secretary Education Balochistan, Mr. Noor Ul Haq said, “There is only one formula for development and alleviation of poverty, i.e. the provision of education. No nation can develop and escape the vicious cycle of poverty without education.” He discussed the role of the Government of Balochistan in improving the literacy rate in the province with an estimated budget of more than 60 billion allocated for education. He stressed the need for each teacher to leave no stone unturned in shaping the hearts and minds of students to help secure the future of the province. Secretary Environment, Mr. Saboor Kakar thanked PPAF for proposing solutions for problems affecting local communities, and expressed his commitment to work with LSOs to formulate plans that can better address issues of local communities.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Javed Ahmad, Chief Engineer, Planning and Design PHE Department addressed the challenge of water scarcity and the water-poverty nexus. He discussed the mitigation measures being taken by the Government of Balochistan to opt for workable solutions to resolve the issue with a vision to resolve the water crisis by 2030 in Balochistan. He said that there are currently five dams proposed in Balochistan for countering water scarcity. He also mentioned that water from existing resources is being channeled to improve the supply of water in the province in order to counter groundwater depletion. He thanked PPAF for its efforts in empowering local communities.
Dr. Javed Tareen, Director General, Research, Agriculture, Balochistan in his address stressed on the need for exploring the agricultural potential in Balochistan to uplift the state of the provincial economy.

In her closing remarks, Chairperson, PPAF, Ms. Roshan Khursheed Bharucha emphasized on the need for local communities to step forward and take charge of their destiny by sheer will, hard work, and by ensuring inclusion of women in the process of development. She ensured PPAF’s continued support for local communities to alleviate poverty in Balochistan.

The Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) is the apex institution for community-driven development in Pakistan. PPAF works as private sector organization in support of public policy, by providing an array of financial and non-financial services to the poorest and the most marginalized communities across Pakistan.
