    Description

    Project Summary:

    “A major reason for poor performance of many linguistic and ethnic minority children is that they are often taught in a language they struggle to understand. It limits their ability to develop foundations for later learning and negatively affects their cognitive development.” UNESCO

    In 2018, TCF built its very first schools in the Tharparkar district and plans to develop and implement a multilingual education framework first in these schools with potential to scale it across the province. This entails implementing a framework which potentially uses the students’ mother tongue and incorporates the regional language, language of common use (Urdu) and an international language (English) at various stages of a child’s schooling journey.

    Job Summary:

    TCF has successfully completed the research phase, and now moved to the Second Phase of developing resources and capacity for the aspired multilingual education framework.

    Training Modules:

    • Designing in person capacity building program and digital training modules for early childhood and primary years, that incorporate the essential principles associated with MTB-MLE

    Language Rich Environment:
