AKAH raises awareness on National School Safety Day

26 May 2019

To protect schoolchildren from natural disasters and other insecurities, the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) convened government education departments, district disaster management authorities and the media in Gilgit-Baltistan, Chitral, Khyber Pakhunkhwa, Sindh and Punjab. Nawab Ali Khan, AKAH CEO Pakistan said: "In the 2005 earthquake, Pakistan lost around 20,000 children due to vulnerable structures and lack of awareness and preparedness, which cannot be repeated. We need our schools to be resilient and better prepared for similar situations. We are thankful to our public and private-sector partners for joining hands with us to achieve this objective."
