Pakistan's first transgender technical training school to open

LAHORE – Pakistan will inaugurate its first ever institute for educational and vocational training for the transgender community next Sunday.

Named ‘The Gender Guardian’, the school offers a full 12 years of academic education from the primary level to matriculation, and then leading up to college.

The school was founded by Asif Shahzad and the Exploring Future Foundation. Asif told Dawn that about 15 faculty members (including three from the transgender community) will serve at the school initially.

Moreover, two other branches of the same institution will be opened in Karachi and Islamabad.
