Communication and trust forms the underlying foundation of a successful partnership which is ultimately measured by its impact on the ground. To ensure that the partnership progresses smoothly towards its goals, the Ali Institute of Education has always collaboratively partnered with some of the notable organizations including UNESCO, USAID, UNHCR, UNICEF, MOAWIN Foundation, and have proven to be effective to scale its impact faster and more efficiently. AIE’s partnership has focussed entirely on education in schools. It has a unique role in improving the standards for improving education and learning, and also mobilizing resources to support and monitor implementation of those standards.
Donor Funded Projects
Ali Institute of Education has been implementing projects funded by local and international donors since its inception. The aim of Donor Funded Projects is to improve the quality of the school environment of low-income primary and secondary schools through donor-backed interventions. AIE has scaled up its expertise to support whole school development projects aimed at improving education standards, environment and capacity building of school’s staff. We are also passionate about engaging children with a holistic approach.
Our solid experience of working with international donor organisations such as USAID, UNESCO and UNICEF as well as local bodies i.e. Babar Ali Foundation, Interloop Ltd. Gurmani Foundation and Al-Moiz Industries, makes us a reliable and trustworthy partner.
AIE is committed to improving the quality of primary-school level education in Pakistan through raising the status of teaching to a profession. AIE seeks to especially address the educational needs of teachers and to promote education to under-privileged and marginalized sections of society.
AIE exclusively addresses the significant education challenges faced by schools through supporting more effective teaching and learning to improve learning by strengthening their school system. The purpose is to turn AIE’s vision into actionable objectives and in this regard, AIE’s interventions in educational bodies are monitored through a results framework, which tracks progress, gradually.
In recent years, AIE along with the collaboration of funding partners has taken on the task of improving learning of primary and secondary school children (Grade 1 – Grade 10). AIE has been working with the following donors to achieve this monumental task:
> Babar Ali Foundation
