Impact of Education on our Lives

Our children are the future leaders if educated and raised well. Attaining basic education is the right of every child, we must understand that not providing proper education is alarming for the future of the country. Keeping in mind the low literacy rates of Pakistan, we are responsible for stepping forward and help our next generation overcome the educational barriers being faced by the underprivileged community.
A large number of nonprofit organizations in Pakistan are currently working actively regarding free education for the underprivileged community. This will definitely improve the living standards of every single child.

Identification of the Deprived Segments

Pakistan, being an underdeveloped country, we could see that FATA, Baluchistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan are currently the most affected areas educationally with the literacy rate below 44%. Many international NGOs in Pakistan are trying their level best to provide widespread access to free education by providing financial aid and building small scale schools in various localities across Pakistan.

Scholarships For Pakistani Students Funded by Non-Profit Organizations

If a large number of charity organizations join hands to work for the cause of improving the standards of education, there are good chances for the underprivileged communities to thrive and achieve newer heights. More educated children mean more bread earners, which will lead us to boost our socioeconomic status. Such initiatives will not only improve the living standards, but also improve the aggregate GDP of the country as well.

What Are the Long-term Benefits of Free Education?

Two things never go wasted, education and hard-work. Similar is the case with providing scholarships for Pakistani students. A large number of families are deprived of even the basic necessities of life such as food, water and shelter. Free education will allow our young learners with better job opportunities and a healthy lifestyle hence changing the face of Pakistan for good.
