Despite the challenges

In the summer of 2022, torrential monsoon rains triggered the most severe flooding in Pakistan’s recent history, washing away villages, destroying hundreds of thousands of homes, and leaving millions of people and livestock for dead. This is a war with no end—the massive floods have reshaped the landscape, uprooting and displacing a third of Pakistan’s population.

In these challenging times, Knowledge Platform is working hard to provide services to its partner schools. Last month, Knowledge Platforms’ Customer Success Team covered intense training sessions in the South Region, which was recently devastated by floods. The team provided training sessions in Larkana, Shikarpur, Naudero, Mirpurkhas, Umerkot, Hyderabad, and Thano Bulla Khan for multiple clients including SZABIST, IBA, and BFS.

The main focus of these teacher trainings was to familiarise the teachers with a blended learning model and how to integrate that model and the solution in their schools. Schools appreciated our efforts wholeheartedly.

While the trainings were successful, it was heart-wrenching to travel into areas where crops lay ruined, and houses were still submerged. People in the areas Knowledge Platform visited are living without basic amenities, such as gas, electricity, proper houses, or even clean drinking water.  Knowledge Platform hopes that our efforts will mitigate some of the issues faced by the people of Pakistan.
