Education should be considered one of the most and basic need for all genders. But unfortunately in the rural areas of Pakistan, female education is barely a priority. This is either due to poverty as people are unable to afford the school dues or fees due to co education being considered a taboo.
About 13% children do not attend school because of the distance 16% of primary schools are single classroom schools and 55% of woman have never seen the inside of a classroom and female literacy is at 64% among those who are 15 years and above. According to constitution of Pakistan the curriculum books and fundamental education is free for 5 to 16 years of ages.
According to Organization of Alif Ailaan 1 Crore and twenty one lakh females children are deprive from education. There is saying that “If a man is educated he is educated himself but a women is educated the whole family is educated”. It is time we learn the importance of education of women, more over it’s their constitutional right.
An educated woman emerges as a dutiful lady in the society, equipped with moral values, also generates income and helps her family members. Thus I humbly request to take and ensure proper implementation of steps necessary to create, awareness tackle the issue, eradicate and eliminate it.
