Education

The Peace Group of Journalists understands that education is the main factor and source to promote peace which enlightens the minds to bring the change among the traditional mindset with knowledge. Therefore, we give top priority to the education sector. We initially established three schools for unprivileged children while some schools are being provided assistance within limited available resources. The PGOJ provides the monthly scholarship, uniform, books, notebooks, school bags, school shoes and other stationary items to the poor and orphan children studying in different government and private schools. Two more schools are being established in District Bhimber and the District Neelum. The land has been acquired for setting up a school in Neelum and Bhimber. Continuous efforts are being made in other districts of AJK to establish same schools with the assistance of philanthropists. The education would be promoted as a mission under the Peace School System to provide free education to the vulnerable and neglected children.

The PGOJ has also launched adult education program in different rural areas of Azad Kashmir and under this program the men and women of area taught basic reading and writing skills. PGOJ has also set up tent schools for the nomads and the children of the working class.
