A project by Children’s Global Network Pakistan (CGN-P)

Accelerating Early Childhood Education through Social Entrepreneurship in Pakistan
The Parwaan Preschool program aims to provide high quality, sustainable and affordable early childhood education to pre-school age children while at the same time creating opportunities for young adults to set up and manage early childhood centers, and create an income for themselves and their families. CGN-P works with communities to select and train young adults to become ECD entrepreneurs. Once training is completed, Parwaan helps entrepreneurs set up the centers and provides them with a set of materials and equipment to get started.

After successful completion of training, Parwaan provides the entrepreneurs with an all-inclusive school readiness kit (teaching and learning manipulatives) and Parwaan Qaida – a nine-month course for pre-primary children based on the National ECE Curriculum of Pakistan to help them setup the centers. Parwaan then regularly monitors the quality of the centers and provides free technical support for 2 months to the entrepreneurs for smooth functioning of the center. This technical support is tailored made to put an entrepreneur on a break even trajectory.
