Chalo Parho and Barho
Over the last three years, ITA has been experimenting with an innovative accelerated learning programme. Recent results from the programme ‘Chalo Parho Barho’ (Let’s read and grow) show learning gains for children in underperforming districts of Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan. The CPB programme covers grades 2-5 and is open to children in school and out of school. It enables children out of school to enrol (or re-enrol) in an appropriate grade and it helps ensure that children at risk of dropping out of school (because their learning is not progressing) stay in school.

CPB is a citizen led initiative and has been designed in a manner where it is the citizens’ of the community that are working towards improving the educational status of their community’s children. Educated volunteers are recruited from the villages and then trained by ITA to conduct CPB classes in the local government schools. Volunteers were trained in the Combined Activities for Maximized Learning (CAMAL) methodology, which is a highly effective technique for teaching language and arithmetic in a short span of time.

The current CPB programme is reaching out to two districts D I KHAN and Mardan over the course of 18 months in a new province i.e. KP. Our vision is that based on results of annual assessments, CPB camps are requested by provincial and district governments (to be implemented by ITA and other organizations) for in school and out of school children in low performing areas of Pakistan to boost literacy and numeracy learning outcomes and to promote enrolment in schools while reaching out to most marginalized.
