Timing of take up of EWI Marie Curie Fellowship - TBC
IDSP-Pakistan was established in 1996 by Dr quratulain Bakhteari. Her work of community development over thirty years helped to conceive and design a learning space for young people in Pakistan. Balochistan was chosen because of its extensive experience with youth groups and its social, cultural and political organisation and experimentation. The main campus for the Foundation for IDSP-Pakistan is in Quetta, Balochistan and today it has its own academic faculty and a management structure of 45 full time professionals based on a fellowship framework.

Education of Girls in Rural Societies in Pakistan.
Girl’s Education in Traditional Muslim Communities.
