Pakistan frequently makes headlines for the instability in its sociopolitical structure. Paradoxically, the country also has a major asset it can be proud of: a burgeoning population under the age of 15 comprising 35% of the country’s 180 million – plus people. In their vibrant hands lies the bright future of Pakistan.
Unfortunately, Pakistan is also home to the world’s second-largest out-of-school population: 25 million children who should be in schools. One in five drop out of school; those who make it to school have been deemed illiterate and innumerate because of the poor teaching quality.
