It gives me immense pleasure to appreciate the MEF staffs who are working hard for promoting the worthy cause of education in Merged Districts. Their efforts are especially praiseworthy as they are working in a very challenging work environment. Let me assure that their efforts will not go waste. To achieve its goals MEF is constantly exploring new areas for intervention. It provides free quality education to talented and poor students of Merged Districts in quality educational institutions, called Center of Excellence. It promotes model schools as bench market quality institutions in the area. It arranges quality training for the teachers and principals of schools and works for the improvement of infrastructure facilities in public and private schools. The Foundation is preparing for launching an ambit out public private partnership initiative that will have a far reaching impact on the quality, access and governance of private education in Merged Districts. I would also like to take this opportunity to thanks Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for his commitment to the cause of MEF and continuous support in realizing its vision. I hope that the website of MEF will help to foster public understanding of our programs.
