Did you know...

The Columbo fingerprint scanner is being used to fight fraud in remote areas of Pakistan for a project funded by The World Bank.

Particularly in the country’s southern Balochistan and Sindh provinces, entire ‘shadow schools’ were still being funded although the facilities were long abandoned. An estimated 7,000 of these institutions are spread throughout Pakistan’s countryside.

The Pakistan Education Department is sending representatives to these villages, using Columbo to verify the identity of the local teachers dedicating themselves to the next generation of Pakistanis.

The scope of the project is 150,000 educators within the country, with the ultimate goal of having real-time attendance monitoring in each village.
