Last Updated on April 5, 2024 by Programme

Benazir Taleemi Wazaif is a program that offers conditional cash transfers to support the education of children whose parents are active beneficiaries of BISP’s Kafaalat program. This initiative aims to encourage enrollment in schools and colleges and discourage dropout rates by providing additional cash incentives to beneficiaries who ensure their children’s retention up to the higher secondary level. This program is essential in promoting education and breaking the cycle of poverty in our society.

Objectives

The goals of Benazir Taleemi Wazaif are as follows: to establish a lasting and sustainable understanding of the significance of primary, secondary, and higher secondary education among BISP beneficiary households; to boost the number of children enrolled in primary, secondary, and higher secondary schools; to enhance school attendance rates among children; and to decrease the rate of school dropouts.

Program History

The Benazir TaleemiWazaif Programme was first tested in November 2012 across five districts. Over time, the program grew from five to thirty-two districts by 2015, then to fifty districts in 2018. In January 2020, the program expanded to one hundred districts, and as of July 2020, it has been implemented nationwide across all districts of Pakistan. This expansion marks a significant milestone for the program and its efforts to support education in the country.

The execution of the program involves crucial stakeholders, namely BISP, Provincial Education Departments, Schools, and Donors.

The conditions for children to be eligible to participate in the Benazir TaleemiWazaif program are as follows: the child must be a dependent of an active BISP Kafalat beneficiary, and their age must meet certain requirements depending on the level of education they wish to enroll in.

Microsupply Capacity Assessment

The provincial education departments provide BISP with data pertaining to the micro supply capacity assessment of all public schools. This information is gathered with the goal of identifying the available capacity of both public and private schools, including factors such as enrollment capacity, infrastructure conditions, accessibility, and catchment area. The assessment of supply capacity for private schools is conducted upon the identification of mothers during the child enrollment process. This process is undertaken with utmost seriousness to ensure accurate and effective registration and enrollment activities.

Social Mobilization

Social mobilization aims to raise awareness among BISP beneficiary families about the significance of education. The BISP field team conducts visits to various localities in the districts to encourage beneficiaries to enroll their children in school. Additionally, they visit beneficiaries whose children have not complied with attendance requirements in their respective quarters to determine the cause of non-compliance and motivate them to achieve the necessary attendance. BISP field offices carry out extensive mobilization activities during periods when attendance compliance activities are not operationalized due to school closures, assignment completion, or school vacations.

Benazir Taleemi Wazaif Registration

The Taleemi Wazaif program places great importance on enrollment, which is a significant activity. Once the SCA is completed, a comprehensive registration process is initiated to include all potential beneficiaries. To ensure maximum coverage, registration centers are set up in tehsil offices located in close proximity to the Taleemi and Wazaif families. Communication with potential beneficiaries is established through targeted local outreach and a wide-reaching Public Information Campaign (PIC) via various media channels. Upon successful registration, the Taleemi Wazaif potential family and their eligible children become beneficiaries of the program.

Admission and Attendance Compliance

Benazir Taleemi Wazaif provides cash transfers to families under the condition that they comply with the admission and attendance requirements of the program. The purpose of this compliance is to ensure that children are taking responsibility for their education and to qualify their families for cash benefits. However, if there is non-compliance, the cash transfers will be stopped. The objectives of the admission and attendance requirements are to identify children who have fulfilled their responsibilities and grant them cash transfers, as well as to identify those who have not complied and apply consequences accordingly.

It is imperative to identify Taleemi Wazaif beneficiary children who have failed to fulfill their responsibilities and take appropriate action in such cases by triggering alerts and implementing consequences for non-compliance. In instances where beneficiary children have not adhered to the attendance co-responsibility for three consecutive compliance quarters, they must be suspended from the program.
