With funding from the government of Australia, the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) has partnered with SPARC to support skills development for vulnerable and hard-to-reach women and girls using open and distance learning.

Empowering women and girls to shape their own future has an incredible multiplier effect on economic growth that leads to increased prosperity not just for individuals, but for entire communities. SPARC’s project in collaboration with COL will provide skills training to a minimum of 5,000 women and girls in marginalized communities of Punjab, Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The outcomes of the project will include improved sustainable livelihoods; increased and equitable access to, and use of, quality learning opportunities; improved organization capacity to leverage open and distance learning.
