Recently, the expansion project of China-Pakistan Gwadar Faqeer Middle School funded by China Foundation for Peace and Development (CFPD) was successfully completed and officially handed over to the local education department.
The project, started in November 2019, is an important part of people's livelihood cooperation under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor. Despite of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Pakistan, shortage of engineering materials,technologies and construction personnel, the construction was completed ahead of schedule through the concerted efforts of China and Pakistan.
Covering an area of 1,600 square meters after the expansion, the school is equipped with two teaching buildings and supporting facilities, and can accommodate nearly 1,000 students. It will significantly improve the educational facilities in Gwadar and create better educational environment for local students.
