RISE in Pakistan: Key Achievements, Best Practices, and Lessons Learned
The USAID-supported RISE project improved the school experience for students in four earthquake-affected districts in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK). RISE assisted education officials, teachers, and communities to build back a better system in which teachers have the necessary skills to improve the quality of their instruction, communities are mobilized to advocate and act for their schools, and education departments are better able to manage resources. RISE operated from the belief that a comprehensive system of support for communities, teachers, and educational officials substantially improves the quality of classroom instruction and student learning.
