Girls Stipend Program
PMIU continues to implement the Zewar-e-Taleem Programme, and successfully disbursed stipends to 614,396 beneficiaries in the 16 districts of Southern Punjab. This stipend is critical in enabling the girls from these districts to complete their middle and high school education, as it supports them to buy necessities like uniform, shoes, school books and transportation amongst others.
Going forward the focus is on improving the process of disbursement of the stipends and making the mechanism more streamlined. PMIU is working on the digitization of data collection and consolidation, which will enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the disbursements and add value to the overall impact of the girls stipends programme.
