Need & Importance
Education is the surest way out of poverty and disadvantage and for that it is valued the world over. However, it remains inaccessible to many and simply beyond reach. Unfortunately, Pakistan is ranked 166 out of 173 countries on the UN education index and this tells the sorry saga of our education sector. Although literacy rate in Pakistan rose from 45 to 54 percent in between 2002-06 yet sustained efforts are needed to achieve 2015 Millennium Development Goal of full primary completion and gender parity enrolments.
