The closing ceremony for Project Based Learning, CARE Foundation’s pilot project, was organized at CARE High School No. 1 on the 13th of March.
The theme of the project was Health and Hygiene which was integrated in all school subjects with the help of interactive models and activities.

The successful implementation of Project Based Learning in CARE’s model school is a huge step to enter a new era of interactive learning in Pakistan. CARE Foundation will soon start this project in its other schools as well.
