The year 2014
Theatres have always played a vital role in strengthening any awareness campaign. Dramas and street-based theatres have a unique impact on the masses since they have a direct link with people and they can easily covey the message by capturing the mind of civil societies. Street-based theatres provide strong support to reveal the bitter realities of any matter and department and educational status is one of them and theatres can help to make an individual aware of the actual situation. Both the making of theatres and attending of theatres contribute to promoting quality education and literacy also.
The masses need to be aware of the actual facts and figures of education status and they need to know what’s going on in the educational sector to raise their voices. So in order to make this happen,
HDF has completed a street-based Theatre Project in 4 districts of AJK. Muzaffarabad, Hattian, Neelum and Bagh. We hired a professional team of artists. Wrote script and team performed on it. We performed 2 theatres in each district so that our voice can be spread up to the maximum community.
In 4 districts of AJK hundreds of people directly received our message. And thousands of people indirectly got the message. As a result of this theatre activity, we formed committees in villages that taken the responsibility to take initiative and steps to enrol out of school children.

- Enrolment Campaign
To equip our children with education, it’s an important thing that they should provide a plate form, which is school. When the schools and playing grounds of a country remain settled, ultimately the nation grew up and up. To make the nation developed it’s important that every child should be enrolled in school by enrolment campaign.
HDF along with their partner and donors run Enrolment Campaign in which an enrolment walk was organized in which civil society members, education officials, school children, teachers and especially P.M AJK participated.
The campaign was launched and also expanded with civil society to enhance enrolment. HDF also run the enrolment campaign in several districts of AJK.
Enrolment camps in villages were a good example of new enrolment of children in near schools. We organized these camps in Muzaffarabad and district Kotli.
Outcomes of Campaign:
As a result of these campaigns in different years has increased the enrollment and thousands of out of school children were enrolled, especially teachers has played a great role in the retention of these children
