MoU of RadioSchool inked for distant learning

By Ajmal Khan Yousafzai

ISLAMABAD: In line with directives of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Radio Pakistan and the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to launch RadioSchool to promote distant learning in the country. Director General Radio Pakistan Ms. Ambreen Jan and Additional Secretary Ministry of Education and Professional Training Mr. Mohyuddin Ahmad Wani signed the MoU in Islamabad on Friday.
The signing ceremony was witnessed by 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. Under the MoU, Radio Pakistan will run four-hour transmission daily from Tuesday next [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 wave 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. Besides broadcast of RadioSchool’s educational programmes, this facility will also be available on mobile apps, which can be downloaded via Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
