Fight illiteracy... By Ayesha

03 December, 2013

The greatest barrier in Pakistan's progress is lack of education, particularly for women. If we educate a boy, we educate an individual, but if we educate a girl, we educate society. The literacy rate amongst females is just 36 percent. Every human being should have the opportunity to make his or her life better.

Unfortunately, too many girls in our country today grow up without this chance because they are denied their basic rights to even attend primary school. We can make economic progress by investing at the grassroots level in female education. We cannot eradicate female illiteracy without making primary education totally free and compulsory, and allocating big funds for opening schools and colleges for females.
