School Management Committee Meeting

The Hunar Ghar School Management Committee (SMC) comprises of community members and the parents of students enrolled at Hunar Ghar as well as Hunar Ghar staff.  Our SMC works with the school administration to manage and monitor school activities. The participation of the parents and the larger community lends us much-needed support on ways to bring about change and strengthens the school’s relationship with local community members.
