Education is the fundamental basic right of every human being. The Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan has provided statutory guarantee to ensure this basic human right to every citizen of Pakistan under Article 25 – A of the Constitution. Education sector in Pakistan has serious issues of access, quality and equity. A stoic resolve with determination is the need of the hour to overcome these obstacles and ensure affordable quality education to all. The mandate of National Education Foundation – NEF is the provision of affordable quality education in Public Private Partnerships – PPP, especially for the marginalized and disenfranchised sections of society in Pakistan. NEF is an autonomous organization headed by a Board of Governors under the auspices of Ministry of Education, Training and Standards in Higher Education. NEF was established in 1994 with a mandate to oversee PPP initiatives in promoting education across ICT, FATA, FANA and AJK. The vision of NEF is to promote basic education in its administered areas in partnership & collaboration with communities, parents and public/private sector organizations.

Education has paramount importance for economic and social development. Pakistan is committed to achieve 100% access to Universal Primary Education by year 2015 and accomplish the targets set in Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). To achieve MDG target sand to ensure affordable quality education for the poor, less-affluent and disadvantaged, NEF is developing frugal and organic incipient initiatives for affordable quality education in PPP, technical and vocational education and continuous professional development of teachers both in public and private sector. NEF is striving to develop partnerships with local, regional, national and international organizations and partner with all stakeholders to come forward and join hands to accomplish our constitutional and international commitment.

I am sure that NEF will shape into an eminent and erudite organization with impeccable professional and academic pursuits with enviable service delivery ensuring affordable quality education in PPP under the able guidance of the honorable Members and Chairman Board of Governors. May God and His Prophet (PBUH) continue blessing all of us Aameen.
