Under the programme, 1,150,000 children between age 4 to 12 of BISP beneficiary families from nine districts and one Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) agency, falling under Cluster 1, and 550,000 children from eight districts of Sindh and Balochistan, placed under Cluster 2, will be registered and of those out-of-school children will be enrolled in local schools.
