EDUCATION SUPPORT PROGRAMME

Pakistan Christian Forum/RWN on 26th November 2018, gathered for the first time at one table to discuss initiatives towards empowering the Christian community in the field of education and initiated the first ever “Pakistan Christian Student Education Support Program”. The RWN has been benefitting Christian students through its scholarship Programme since 2018. RWN in this endeavor, is being supported by Pakistan Partnership Initiatives (PPI) and Pak Mission Society (PMS), and PCF. They agreed to work together to elude the marginalization of the Christian community that hinders its educational journey and conducted a research study on the status of Christian education in Pakistan. This study (Higher Education and unattended notion) was completed in December 2020 and is a document that can be consulted for further planning and policy making. The scholarship aims to provide financial assistance to the most deserving Christian students to acquire higher education by removing their financial limitations and enabling them to prove as potential citizens. Therefore, the PCSP focuses on providing quality education to deprived but deserving Christian students.
