Education is a powerful weapon through which we can liberalize Pakistan from internal as well as external threats. Unfortunately, education has not been prioritized by any successive government in the country. It is eye-opening news that 22.6m children are out of school, according to Pakistan Education Statistics. Pakistan is lagging behind in education in South Asia. According to UNESCO, literacy rate in Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, and Sri Lanka is 56.4pc, 61.5pc, 72.1pc, 92.6pc respectively. Pakistan’s education spending budget is 2.83pc of total budget. Only four universities have placed its positions in world 1000 university ranking. This army of illiterate and unemployed people emerge poverty, deteriorated law and order situation and also lured by extremist thought. Pakistan has a resource-based economy but due to lack knowledge-based economy, it is not used properly.
WHAT WE DO?
We want to build schools in rural areas and also give stipends to families for sending children to school so we can help reduce child labor and encourage education.
