Alif Ailaan Job, Data Evidence Campaign Manager
Data & Evidence Campaign Manager
Since Alif Ailaan published the 25 million out of school children’s (OOSC) figure in its seminal report, “25 Million Broken Promises” in October 2014, the total number of out-of-school children has fallen to 24 million. This is a small first step to a long road to transforming education in Pakistan. Alif Ailaan seeks to make education a central part of the national conversation in Pakistan and get these children into school.

The candidate shall work with team members to ensure that the campaign’s messages are heard and education remains a key issue in the national and provincial discourse.
