About Us

Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi

Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi (ITA), or the “Centre of Education and Consciousness” Public Trust, was established in 2000. With humble beginnings in Lahore, ITA has expanded programs (capacity building, services, research, advocacy and policy influence) across the country with 23 offices and 131 staff. It is certified by the Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy (PCP) and has a tax-exempt status. It has been recently accorded special consultative status by the UN ECOSOC on April 27, 2017. The mission of ITA is to advocate and demonstrate universal access to quality learning and standard setting in education as a comprehensive inclusive learning experience for human evolution. It also strives to strategically engage communities to ascertain positive norm building for a productive society for every individual regardless of their Gender. Since 2000, ITA has been engaged in the multi-facet learning and awareness programs through a rights-based partnership approach to improve quality of life, ensuring inclusive and gender mainstreaming approaches and evidence-based advocacy for policy influence (mainly within the public-sector space). It emerged both as a response to the deeply felt crises of gender parity and learning systems by its original sponsors, and also to the government's demand to help improve living standards.

About The Program

The project aims to reduce Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) and Child, Early and Forced Marriages (CEFM) by actively engaging and supporting community actors to promote positive gender norms and by supporting women and girls who have experienced violence, through its 3 project pillars.

Ties with Oxfam in Pakistan’s country strategy- with gender justice as one of its goals, seeking to ensure that “women are better able to exercise agency, collective action, and leadership in economic, social, legal and political spheres.”

  • Pillar one: BROAD STRATEGIES

  • Pillar two: BROAD STRATEGIES
    Connecting those who experience VAWG/CEF with quality social and legal services
