Aizaz Younas – Batch of 2019, LUMS

Aizaz Younas Arts - Website

Aizaz Younas got involved with TEF during the Summer Camp, 2017. He conducted a two-day calligraphy-painting workshop which was well received by the teachers and staff members. This is what he has to say about his experience with TEF:

“TEF has a very elaborate Arts Department compared to what I’ve seen in many schools, even in Lahore. Nadia and her team cooperated really well throughout the workshop, and the teachers were all really enthusiastic and motivated to participate in the calligraphy-painting activity. Overall, I had a very enjoyable and memorable experience, and would like to be a part of such training activities in the future as well”

It was a hard decision, being a recent graduate and going for an internship rather than look around for a job. But fortunately, it turned out to be a great experience indeed. Not only has it helped me internalize the idea of “doing a job” but also, equipped me with skills that you need in order to deal with the world of social sector. From office setting, reading and writing, analyzing data and discussing policies to field setting; meeting policy-makers, visiting area under development and seeing the progress as it entails, all this is what provides you with the information and processes one needs to know in order to become a part of the development sector. This is exactly what I learned at Tareen Education Foundation.

 

Tareen Education Foundation& Agricultural Research and Advocacy Center: what is it about?

 

Tareen Education Foundation was established at the wake of poor educational standards faced by Pakistan where especially Southern Punjab needs to be highlighted. Lodhran; a remote district 60 km off Multan is where 85 government schools have been adopted by TEF and where reform initiatives started with a baseline survey. I was given a chance to work on the data from the survey and it was surprising to see the very high student-teacher ratios, lack of infrastructure, furniture, walled boundaries, electricity, water & toilets and thus, the corresponding low attendance of students. TEF has started off by first building infrastructure for the schools with the generous funding provided by Jahangir Khan Tareen and then with the help of BookGroup and Center for Advanced Studies Karachi, the designing and implementation of various teacher training and professional development programs and provision of modern oxford standard books to the children is under process. Besides TEF another venture in which I was able to get involved was Agricultural Research and Advocacy Centre (ARAC), the purpose of which is to conduct research on various agricultural issues facing farmers and then lobby high echelons for policy recommendations. ARAC is conducting various research projects, some of which I was given a chance to work on. I was required to assist the Research Associates with their ongoing research projects; in this regard I worked with Junaid Khan and Zaineb Majoka with their respective projects being, ‘Compilation of all the Agriculture related publications in Pakistan’ and ‘All the Policy Research Institutes.’ ‘Comparison of wheat support prices of Pakistan with India and international market’ being another major project in which I was able to chip in.

 

Objectives of the internship:

 

The purpose of this internship was to familiarize myself with how a nonprofit organization conducts its operations. From surveys to policy-making methodologies, their implementation and then evaluation. Besides that, practicality and implementation of ideas and concepts while working in the field is another thing that this internship was to teach me. Learning how to make reports, documentation of completed work in schools, learn as much as possible while in the field, make observations and talk to people about the viability of operations and then report them back to the head office. In a nutshell, getting yourself out of the academic world and preparing for the practical world of affairs was the objective of this internship, which encompasses all that you learn ablout work ethics, work environment and coordination with colleagues to work as a team.

 

What I did and My Learning Experiences:

 

Starting on June 6, I was assigned a desk and chair and it is here when you feel like ‘part’ of the organization and start learning. One of my first jobs was to analyze the TEF data of adopted schools which was a detailed document, containing all the information that you need to know in order to assess the condition and quality of schools and their educational standards. It was playing with this data, presenting various ratios, from teacher-students, students-furniture and number of rooms available per number of students, I learned the quantitative research methods. Many thanks to Dr. Ahsan, Executive Member of TEF, who guided me all the way, identifying various variables and to develop a cause-effect or correlation between them. Not only was it worth that it added to my graph making and quantitative research skills, it also added to my knowledge of social conditions of the area, which really gave me an insight into the low standards of educational facilities there. A practical manifestation of this learning experience came with the news that all the interns were being sent for a field trip to Lodhran. A passion for travelling to South Punjab, which I didn’t have earlier, as I had not got a chance to explore much before and to see actually the operations that TEF is undertaking on ground, I looked forward to this trip and it turned out to be a great learning experience.

 

Lodhran Field Trip; visit to schools, TEF office and TEF summer school

 

It was a brief two days visit, where we were supposed to not only visit selective schools adopted by TEF but also visit the colorful summer school and meet teachers and students to record their experience of a different learning environment provided by TEF. The summer school initiative was the first of its kind in the history of Lodhran. The trained athletics/teachers were engaging students in different sports activities. From cricket and football to javelin and discuss throw and long jumps, students were coming up with a tremendous talent. Most fascinating was to see the female participation in all these activities side by side with male students. Where this trip gave me the opportunity to interact with the students and people of the locality, listen to their views about the effectiveness of TEF operations, it also chattered my old conceptions about the region being very harsh towards women education and their extracurricular participation. The dramatics, movie sessions, art classes and health and sanitation sessions were all innovations of TEF staff at Lodhran which added a new dimension to the students’ learning.The schools that we visited included 3 for boys and 3 for girsl. All 6 schools were at quite a distance from each other and from the TEF office. With the hard work of TEF’s engineering department, all 6 schools were equipped with electricity, water, toilets, furniture, walled boundary, extra rooms and plants, where one or more of these facilities were lacking in each school before adoption. One thing I learned from these advancements and interviews with students and teachers, that the participation was on the rise owing to these reform inititaives by TEF.

 

Writing a Field Report:

 

One word that is common to all the development organizations is ‘field reports’ and I always wanted to produce one of my own. TEF gave me this opportunity where I was supposed to write a report on the Lodhran Field Trip. Confused what a field report would need to look like, Dr. Ahsan guided my way through the technical aspects and I was able to develop one over night. The developments, capacity building and the effectiveness of summer school initiatives of TEF were to be highlighted in the report that was an itinerary of what we observed, and the developments in educational standards of schools that we noted.

 

Agricultural Research and Advocacy Center ‘s Research work:

 

Research writing and policy recommendations are one of my favorite subject areas. Here at ARAC, I had the opportunity to involve myself in some of the research initiatives being undertaken by ARAC. My first job was to compile a database of all the agricultural publications; magazines, newsletters, research journals, policy papers etc that are published in Pakistan. Not only did this assignment give me an insight into what areas of agriculture are being more researched upon in Pakistan but it also polished my research writing skills. I coordinated with Junaid in this respect who guided me what issues and topics of research and policy recommendation to look for while writing the description of each publication. The purpose of this research initiative was to provide a single platform for agricultural-economists, researchers, farmers and policy planners to refer to various publications from across the country. I myself learned a lot about various agricultural problems faced by farmers from Gilgit-Baltistan to Sindh and Baluchistan, what policy lapses hurdle the reach of farmers in international market and especially how can we modernize our agriculture.In line with the above research project, another initiative of ARAC was a list of all the major policy institutes of Pakistan and their research publications. My job here was to coordinate with Zaineb Majoka to find missing information about each policy institute, research on what each policy institute does, how they do it and what their objectives are. Being a student of social sciences, I was always interested in studying new research areas and economic development policy papers. Working on this assignment not only gave me the chance to communicate with heads of various policy institutes of different universities; adding a lot to my knowledge of research work in Pakistan but also helped me improve my technical writing skills.Besides this, the Wheat support price article, written by Zaineb Majoka, which demonstrated the comparison between wheat prices in India, Pakistan and international market was another project in which I assisted . Once again a policy recommendation article, playing with graphs and then deducing results was what I learned from this assignment. Thus all in all, working with ARAC was a great learning experience; viewed from research publications and studying policy issues facing agriculture in Pakistan.

 

Conclusion:

 

I would like to conclude this report by saying that the Internship Programme by TEF has prepared me for any sort of job in the social-development sector. I am confident that whatever management, research and writing skills I have acquired while working for TEF/ARAC would pay me off in the future.

Fatima Hasan – Intern, Internship Program 2011

“A few months before the summers started, job recruitments and internship drives were the two buzz topics that preoccupied the minds of most third and fourth year Luminities. I was surprised to find that most of my colleagues and friends were extremely focused; they knew exactly where they wanted to intern, which department they were interested in and how their internship linked to their future careers. I, on the other hand, was easily in the category of those who are lost. I knew I had a passion for journalism, writing and a genuine desire to do something that might help society. Working at an NGO or a newspaper seemed to fit in most well with these interests so I applied for internships at organizations working in these two fields.

 

I became more familiar with TEF and what it does as I read about it on the website. I remember being impressed when I read that the organization has adopted 85 government schools which it is now striving to improve. I also remember thinking to myself that this would be a great way for me to learn about what work is being done in the education sector in Pakistan.

 

I came in a batch with two other interns, and the three of us were each assigned to one senior member of the organization. I worked as an intern under the Communication Officer; my job was to assist her in the various projects, assignments, and tasks at hand.

 

Most of these tasks involved handling of social media, marketing, and promotion. The tasks I was assigned were fairly simple and straightforward. Some of the tasks were rather mundane such as editing and proofreading of TEF’s policy manuals. Other tasks required more creativity such as designing of certificates for children participating in the summer camp program in Lodhran. Some of the other work that I did as an intern included making of a short promotional video on the summer camp, finding templates/designs on which the brochures/newsletter could be based, promoting the TEF facebook page, finding information and quotes that could be put up on the website, generating ideas and designs for making the new TEF logo and taking/editing of office pictures to be put up on the website.

 

Without a doubt, the most exciting thing about my one-month internship at TEF was the two day trip to Lodhran. The internship coordinator had shown us a few documentaries of the kind of work being done at the schools; she also mentioned that it was an entirely different experience seeing all of it in real life. The schools were closed for the summers in the time period that we were going but a summer camp was happening.

 

The summer camp initiative taken by TEF included a variety of activities and sessions; it became quite obvious after briefly observing the children that these were activities that they were enjoying immensely. The activities and sessions included sports, arts, dramatics, creative writing, and mathematics. There were also movie sessions and sessions on personal hygiene. Transportation was provided by TEF to the children as a form of incentive to join the camp.

 

The sports activities for boys and girls took place on alternate days on the huge lawn next to the guest house. The sports activities included cricket, football, throw ball, discuss throw, javelin throw and long jump. Professional trainers had come from Karachi the previous week and trained the TEF staff in these different forms of athletics.

 

Energy drinks were given to the children at the end of the sports activities. They participated in the athletics with enthusiasm and excitement. Considering the conservative culture and norms of the area, I had been expecting at least a certain level of hesitancy and awkwardness from the girls whilst playing sports. But that turned out to be an incorrect preconception on my part. The girls were very forthcoming and eager, taking part in all the games with confidence and self-assurance. Many of them were even comfortable enough to wear shirts, trousers, and caps along with joggers.

 

Mathematics and creative writing sessions were also conducted as part of the summer camp initiative. The creative writing sessions were meant to allow the students to let their imagination run wild, writing about diverse topics without any restriction. Dramatics was another part of the summer camp that the girls took part in. They put together three plays, all in the Siraiki language. The script, dialogues, props and makeup was all handled by the students themselves. This came as a huge surprise to us as this was the first time that these girls were ever acting in a play.

 

After seeing all the activities taking place at the summer camp, we headed out on a short visit to see the infrastructural work being done at the TEF adopted schools. We visited a total of 6 schools, 3 for boys and 3 for girls. We visited schools where TEF operations have been completed to a large extent, schools where work is still underway and some schools where little work has started. The work that TEF has done in some of these schools included the building of extra classrooms, toilets, wash basins and boundary walls. Provision of furniture, electric pumps, books and sports equipment is some of the other work that has been done at these schools. Hiring of caretakers for the purpose of cleaning and maintaining the schools is another initiative taken by TEF. Plantation drives is yet another project undertaken in which students and teachers plant trees on school premises and have the responsibility of taking care of them.

 

On the whole, my one-month internship at TEF turned out to be a great learning experience for me. Apart from the fact that I was able to familiarize myself with the workings of an office environment, I also learned a great deal from my interaction with everyone working at TEF, both in the Lahore and Lodhran office. This played a huge role in making the internship such a great opportunity to learn. The trip to Lodhran gave me a real-life sample of the work that TEF is carrying out in the region. It was truly heartening to see the work being done there. Interaction with the students, teachers and TEF coordinators in Lodhran was a testimony to the positive impact that TEF is having. The summer camp and its activities was an eye opener for us; it showed that children need to be given opportunities for their talents and potential to come to the forefront. TEF operations in Lodhran are giving children this opportunity and it was a great experience to have been a part of”.
