USAID helps improve teachers education standards
STAFF REPORT LHR: The USAID Training for Pakistan Project believes in providing quality education for teachers. For many of their students in Pakistan, this is their only chance to receive education at par with their peers in advanced countries
According to the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, the country has produced over 8,000 PhDs in various fields although education experts claim this number falls short of its demand. As in the field of higher education alone, universities require over 7,000 PhDs.
Dr. Afshan Huma grew up in a household that had high ambitions for her education, but she has now exceeded even her familys expectations.
Ten years ago she began to pursue a PhD in education from the United Kingdom but discontinued it because of a financial crunch. Still, her dream remained alive.
