Template:Infobox School The Agahi Community Schools are a series of schools established by the Agahi group. Since 1997 Agahi has established seven community schools in villages in Mansehra District of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. In each village, a Community Based Organization (CBO) known locally as a Tanzeem, made up of parents, is responsible for the management of the school. A sub-committee of Tanzeem members, handles operational issues, motivates parents to enrol their children in the school and helps identify village-based teachers.
Agahi has introduced activity-based education and a modern curriculum in the schools. The Agahi Teacher Training Centre in Mansehra town trains teachers during holidays and provides back-up ‘mentoring’ in the classrooms by sending mentors to the schools to provide support and oversight. All teachers are local women and classes are normally around 50% girls.
The villages in which Agahi schools are located are
- Mari Khan Khel
- Buffa Mera
- Laberkot (two schools)
Mazullah and Maidan schools are near the 2005 Kashmir earthquake ‘red zone’, devastated by the earthquake on 8 October 2005, and were built and continue to be supported by Developments in Literacy (DIL) and Agahi.
