My father used to say that people can take everything away but they can't take away your education. Not only is education important to Pakistani's but it is a human right for everyone to have and have access to regardless of gender, disability, race and religion. A lot of problems will be alleviated especially in Pakistan if only everyone had access to a decent and basic education.
Very True Sister. Many Thanks for sharing Your feelings ... Wonderful .
that,s why they ( politicians in majority) don,t allow you to go to school by not providing the basics of life.Life is continuous struggle till its end.No matter how much difficult the circumstances are. We must keep it up.Sooner or later result will be educated,prosperous and healthy Pakistan.
Education is the only revenge for corrupts !
I guess the sticking point for this Govt & many others is Revenue & Finance as well as a social agenda for education.
There should some avenue that could approach the World Bank or the IMF on this basis.
I believe it is time Pakistanis start looking inwards and to themselves for help instead of towards external institutions and governments. The resources can be made available by re-directing the revenues lost to corruption, mismanagement, junkets for the leaders and waste, and this way we will not add to the national debt either.
You've identified corruption, but there must be a way forward.
Education is SO important. I don't know where I would be without it, without the capability to express myself, to calculate simple equations, or unable to learn other languages: french and spanish...
I am so proud to be part of this and to see my name there :)
Thank you so much! I am so flattered. and I have shared it with so many of my friends that it looked like I spammed everyone :S Which was a little embarrassing, but with hope they will all sign it and we shall get many signatures!
"If you plan for one year, plant rice. If you plan for 10 years, plant a tree. If you plan for 100 years, educate a child."
Educating Pakistan has been long over-due. It's the right of every child (girl and boy), and the need of the hour.
I tried to sign but i dont like when they want to have access to your email address, plus HDF site did not have any info regarding who is actualy behind this organisation (no names) only that it is run by some people in north America. How well are you informed about this yasmin ??
The change in Pakistan can only come through education.
Due to being busy I was not able to move the subject. I am available and can help to teach people
A good step towards educational development and progress.
I have signed.
It is unhuman not to even think that the children don't have rights to go to Primary School! How o earth are they going to survive in the future! They are the people who is going to live and work in Pakistan, the country they have been born in! GOVERMENT, please think again and do something RAPIDLY! NOW!
I have already given you the permission,lots of love,Ulla Enström
Education the most reliable companion, the most sustainable investment.
100 percent agreed
If a couple has one son and one daughter and has limited means to educate only one, then they should educate the daughter who in turn would educate her offspring. Girl's education should be the top priority of any state. The very first education a child receives is from his/her mother. Educated mothers are the only hope of better future generations.
Rachid, I'ave been saying that for many years but it was never well received. They didn't seem to understand that mothers play a huge role in educating their children. I learned this after my first was born. Sure daddy took care of her and played with her but he never really taught her anything or read to her at bedtime. He was a good father but a lousy teacher.
Every child born in Pakistan should have the right to a free and basic Education. " As its said Educate a boy and he will find a job, Educate a girl and she will Educate the whole family".
how are you hils?
