Later on the same initiative was introduced in Gilgit-Baltistan for the same purpose and target group. Afghan refugee and local unprivileged children in Rawalpindi are facilitated in their tuition fee, books, stationery and uniform in partnership with Hashoo Foundation and Aga Khan Social Welfare Board. Working children have specially been enrolled in the schools and they are given extra time and guidance in the achievement of learning outcomes. Moreover, FIELD has ensured an environment in the FSS schools, which is child friendly, where children take their active role in teaching and learning interplay and have courage to ask questions to clarify unclear themes. FIELD has introduced inclusive education in the schools and enrolled impaired children in different classes and educates them with other students by looking into individual needs of the students. FIELD has established School Management Committees (SMCs) in FSS schools as well. There is an equal representation of Pakistani and Afghan people in SMCs. The volunteer members of FIELD visit door to door of the Afghan and other under-privileged community members and convince parents to enroll their children to schools.
