ISLAMABAD: The government and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) are launching a three-year programme today (Thursday) aimed at increasing enrolment and improving retention and quality education for girls in eight remote districts of the country.

The programme would target some of the most disenfranchised and hard-toreach areas where access to quality education for girls is most challenged along with high illiteracy rates among adults, particularly women.

The programme will be implemented in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh and Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Islamabad Capital Territory and GilgitBaltistan.
