“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence”
Education in Pakistan has its own charm, here students enjoy their freedom during attaining education. Demographically Pakistan has a very huge area and two-third of the population comprises youth in it.
Taaleem Foundation started working in the education sector with a vision of making Pakistan a prosperous and literate country. Taaleem foundation has been working in Baluchistan since the last three decades, thousands of children have completed their schooling from Taaleem foundation Baluchistan. Taaleem foundation Grammar Schools has integrated the new quality standard of education in the province of Baluchistan. Baluchistan is known as the land of minerals — the land of the great people. Balochistan is not solely defined as the wealthiest province of Pakistan with numerous natural resources and minerals such as coal, oil, copper, gold, marble, natural gas, etc, but is also the biggest province that covers 44 percent land of Pakistan.
Political Personnel has the obligation to provide free and compulsory education to all the children of Pakistan but unfortunately, due to the political socio-economical stigma, education always put behind the impediments. Taaleem foundation believes that education for all is the only thing which can eliminate the deficiency of children and that can only be possible if the education is provided to the children based on equality and latest curriculum.
Free and compulsory primary education is the right of every child. Right to Education Pakistan. The RTE campaign urges government officials to enforce education laws set forth in Article 25-A of the Pakistani Constitution, which states “The State shall provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age of five to sixteen years in such manner as may be determined by law.” This has been internationally acknowledged in a host of declarations and covenants, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 26). While being a signatory and open proponent of these international declarations on education, Pakistan did not afford the same legal status to its children’s education domestically for 60 years. While many agencies and state policies were introduced to battle illiteracy, there was no collective commitment to education, especially from the political stakeholders.
The Federal and provincial compulsory education ordinances bring wider political ownership to the cause of free primary education for all children. In the past, despite numerous policies and international commitments, education had failed to establish itself in the national priorities. Many believe that this situation was contributed to by the lack of political ownership. By ratifying the right to free and compulsory education for all children, Pakistan’s political stakeholders have also publicly declared to improve connected educational issues like improved financing, equity, and learning experience in public schools.
Inclusive schools that demonstrate good practices in Pakistan are restricted to big cities in the private sector. Particularly the reason behind it is that the parents are not aware of the importance of education, and they did not being guided by society in this regard. Deficiency mainly causes due to the ignorance of discriminated society but Taaleem foundation is a platform for the children and also for the parents where they not only guided about the importance of education but it’s teaching and faculty increase their knowledge about children education. It is pertinent for the Government and society to take a step to cater this societal problem as children are our future and without proper guidance, our new generation is in risk.
