  • Form or reorganize SMCs through community institutions.
  • Capacity building of SMCs.
  • Efforts for recognition of and budget for SMCs from the government.
  • Strong linkages of SMCs with the education department.
  • AJKRSP may participate in other education initiatives depending upon available resources. (Currently, project proposals for (a) adult literacy initiative, especially for women, (b) efforts for extension of the (DFID) Community Participation in education project to remaining districts).
