Key Processes

Following are key processes of the Taleemi Wazaif Programme

  • Micro Supply Capacity Assessment (MSCA)

The provincial departments of education provide the information for the micro supply capacity evaluation of all public schools to BISP. Prior to beginning registration and enrollment processes, it is important to determine the capacity (available enrolment capacity, infrastructural conditions, accessibility, and catchment area) of both public and private schools. When a child enrols in a private school, mothers are identified and the supply capacity of those institutions is assessed.

  • Social Mobilization

Benazir Taleemi Wazaif social mobilisation aims to raise awareness of the value of education among BISP beneficiary families. The BISP field team travels to various areas within the relevant districts to encourage beneficiaries to register their children for school. Additionally, they visit beneficiaries who have non-compliant children in their particular quarter to learn the cause of non-compliance and to encourage them to meet the mandated attendance. During the times when attendance compliance efforts are not operationalized in the field because of school closure, assignment completion, and break, BISP field offices mobilise people in large numbers.

Registration and Enrollment

One of the main activities of the Taleemi Wazaif initiative is enrollment. After the SCA is finished, a large registration process that includes all possible beneficiaries starts. By conducting beneficiary communication at the local level as well as through a large Public Information Campaign (PIC) (media campaign), the Taleemi Wazaif potential families are invited to registration centres/tehsil offices created near their vicinities. Families and their eligible children become programme beneficiaries after Taleemi Wazaif’s potential family successfully completes the registration process.

The registration procedure’s goal is to identify the active BISP families with kids in primary school (4–12 years old), secondary school (8–18 years old), and upper secondary (13–22 years old), and register them in the programme.

  • Admission and Attendance Compliance

Cash disbursements under the Benazir Taleemi Wazaif programme are contingent upon beneficiary families meeting the program’s admission and attendance requirements. In order to qualify their individual families for financial benefits, children’s co-responsibility compliance must be observed. Cash transfer is halted in the event of non-compliance, nevertheless.

Identify Taleemi Wazaif beneficiary children who have complied with the co-responsibilities with regard to admission and attendance, and grant them the right to cash transfers. Identify Taleemi Wazaif beneficiary children who have not complied with the co-responsibilities, and in such cases, raise alerts and apply the appropriate consequences for non-compliance.

Case Management

Benazir Taleemi Wazaif The program’s case management approach is a crucial component.
