The ACHIEVE program is a collaborative effort between Pakistan Alliance for Girls Education (PAGE), Prince’s Trust International, and financially supported by Zindigi Trust. Its primary goal is to empower girls through comprehensive education, focusing on both personal and academic development. Commencing with orientation sessions for students and parents, the initiative operates across three schools in Islamabad and Swat, engaging with 100 female students. Its curriculum encompasses confidence-building, communication, entrepreneurship, employability, and digital skills, prioritizing safety, engagement, and empowerment through exposure visits. Notable progress has been observed in enhancing the girls’ skills and boosting their confidence, accomplished through a design thinking process that actively integrates the girls’ voices and needs.
