  1. good to see Alif Ailaan project is putting all efforts to increase school enrollment. I was amazed to see education scores and ranking for all districts that is based on enrollment numbers, achievements and parity of boys and girls. Out of 140 districts ( all provinces, GB, AJK and FATA) Chitral district stands at the 11th position. And this study is carried out by Alif Aliaan and SDPI.
