The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Religious Affairs Department has successfully concluded a significant training project aimed at enhancing the knowledge and skills of teachers and students in religious seminaries.
This initiative was designed to bridge the gap between traditional religious education and modern societal requirements, ultimately helping participants become productive and responsible citizens. Under this project, over 1,000 students and teachers from various madrassas across the province received comprehensive training.
The training sessions were conducted in multiple key districts, including Peshawar, Mardan, Abbottabad, Bannu, and Nowshera. The program spanned five days and was made possible with technical support from the Muttahida Ulema Board.

The training encompassed a wide range of essential subjects, including personality development, social empowerment, career guidance, effective communication skills, entrepreneurship, inter-religious and interfaith harmony, citizenship awareness, and personal responsibilities.
Participants were also educated about their rights to services, voting procedures, fostering respect for differences while seeking common ground, and utilizing technology for personal and educational growth. Prominent scholars and experts from across the country led workshops and educational sessions, contributing to the professional development of both teachers and students.
The project culminated with a ceremony held at Darul Uloom Jamia Ashrafia Peshawar, where Chief Khateeb Maulana Tayyab Qureshi presided as the chief guest.
