MoU Signed to Launch RadioSchool to Help Ensure Education for All

ISLAMABAD, NOV 20 – Under the direction from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Radio Pakistan and the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to launch RadioSchool to promote distant learning in the country.

The MoU was signed by Director General Radio Pakistan Ambreen Jan and Additional Secretary Ministry of Education and Professional Training, Mohyuddin Ahmad Wani in Islamabad Friday.

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Syed Shibli Faraz and Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood as well as the Secretaries of the two ministries witnessed the signing ceremony.

Under the MoU, Radio Pakistan will run four-hour transmission daily from November 24, based on the content provided by the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training to provide primary level education to children.

These educational programmes will be broadcast from various medium waves and FM networks of Radio Pakistan from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon and then as repeat broadcast from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm seven days a week.

RadioSchool is an important initiative taken in the light of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision to impart education to the children of far flung and backward areas and address the issue of providing education to children during the pandemic.

It will also help ensure provision of education to less privileged children and girls. As Radio Pakistan covers every nook and corner of Pakistan, the children from Gilgit to Gwadar will be able to get education from this initiative.

This facility will also be available on mobile apps, which can be downloaded via Apple App Store and Google Play Store. For information pertaining frequency to tune Radio Pakistan network for respective cities, please refer to our website www.radio.gov.pk
