Cities for Children is a UK-based charity which provides support and safe spaces for children living in poverty in Pakistan. In keeping with the Montessori philosophy, Cities for Children believes all children deserve the right to learn, play, and reach their full potential.
They create safe environments for children in cities, particularly children living on the streets, where they have access to education and freedom to explore their own interests. We are supporting their work by enabling a new Partners in Learning project – an exciting new peer-to-peer learning programme where older children (‘Big Partners’) are empowered to support the learning of younger children (‘Little Partners’).
Partners in Learning was originally piloted to maintain young children’s connection with learning during COVID-19. It will enhance learning for children with little access to quality pre-school, and a focus on playful and socio-emotional learning.
