Baela Jamil

In 1995, she joined the task force on education in Punjab where she was given some say in policy work but two years later moving to sindh, she joined the Sindh Education Foundation with Anita Ghulamali, an expert in Education. “I term these years from 1991 to 2000 as my most learning years,” she says. “I worked on a lot of things: design, policy, implementation, etc.
Major programs were expanded, more funds were brought in, money which was previously being wasted was now being utilized in the right places. Even more people joined in. So this experience at SEF was a success.”
Then Baela began thinking of setting up her own organization in 2000. Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi was created in 2000, which started with a project based on the Sindh’s adopt-a-school. This meant taking a run down government school and changing them around.
