While our primary focus continues to be the establishment of model schools and innovative learning programs, we never forget the critical, on-going need to provide humanitarian aid and emergency relief to children and their families
On July 15th, we received a shipment of 8,500 school kits from one of our partners, the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). HTAC decided to distribute the kits among three schools in highly under-served areas. The children attending these schools were among the poorest groups of refugees returning from camps in Pakistan.
One of HTAC's primary objectives is to train teachers, groom school administrators, and successfully implement its innovative programs so that each model school can one day become self-managed and not need to rely on our continued support, indefinitely.
In March of 2006, HTAC proudly turned over the operations of 5 of its fully-functioning schools back over to the Ministry of Education.
