“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
Holy Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.W) said,
“The acquisition of knowledge is a duty incumbent on every Muslim, male and female.”
He also said, “The ink of the scholar is more holy than the blood of martyr.”
Education is the only solution for the humanity to prosper, with the aim to help every child to get education, Al-khidmat Foundation Pakistan has taken lead amoung all its competitors by providing education kits, free schools, education and rehabilitation support to the destitute.
The state of education in Pakistan is dire compared to any standards, For example, according to indices put forth by the United Nations and other global education monitoring sources, Pakistan is 166 out of 173 countries on the UN’s Education Index. 33% of Pakistani children, or 7 million children, do not go to school at all, and only 3 out of 100 children reach high school from primary school. 130,000 children of tribal areas have stopped receiving any formal education because the government has closed down temporary schools and fired teachers working on contract basis, without establishing new schools or hiring permanent staff.
According to article 25-A of the constitution, every child from 5 to 16 years must receive free education. Yet, the Ministry of Education has been abolished in Pakistan! The reality is that 60% of government run schools do not have electricity, while 40% of government run schools do not have water. On June 7, 2012, the Chief Justice of Pakistan chastised the government by referring to a children’s school established in a graveyard, without any furniture whatsoever, with the children studying while sitting on the ground amid the graves.
In the light of these circumstances, the United Nation’s ‘Millennium Development Goals’ project predicts zero achievement in universal primary enrolment target for Pakistan. The fact of the matter is that Pakistan’s population will be 350 Million by 2050, and if the present rate of literacy persists, Pakistan will become the most illiterate nation in the whole world.
