A school center that was named after the first Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Alija Izetbegovic, will be officially opened on Tuesday, July 18, near the town of Sialkot, in Punjab province in Pakistan. Numerous persons from the public and political life of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, as well as representatives of the diplomatic corps, announced their arrival at this event.
The school center Alija Izetbegovic is located in the rural area of the province Punjab, near the border with India. It is a primary school with a capacity of 300 students. This school center consists of three objects. The first object has 12 classrooms, in the second object is the administration, while in the last one are placed labs for informatics, biology, and physics. Moreover, classrooms are equipped with smart boards and are able to provide e-Learning. Thus, students will be able to communicate with their teachers in Karachi in real time. The second module is intended for distance learning, and it was created for the elderly people who will learn English language and some other useful courses, on the same basis as the participants of the first module.
The school center “Alija Izetbegovic” will also have a healthcare part that is based on the principle of “telemedicine”. The basic principle is that the patient explains the problem to a person who had the training on the healthcare module. All the data will be stored in the system after which the system will provide diagnosis and offer prescriptions for possible medications.
The center that was named after the first Chairman of the Presidency of BiH is connected with the corridors and it also includes an open sports field behind the object with the classrooms.
Ambassador of BiH to Pakistan Nedim Makarevic, who designed this project, further emphasized friendly relations between the people of the two nations.
“BiH wanted to give Pakistan something as a small sign of gratitude for everything that Pakistan and its people did for BiH,” said Ambassador Makarevic.
The construction of the center was started in January 2016 and it was completed in July 2017. No funds from the budget of BiH were used for the construction of this center but they were fully provided through the private channels of Ambassador Makarevic.
