Educate Women in Pakistan


Project Leader:
Miss Madiha Aslam


Educating girls and women worldwide, and in Pakistan, is as good as investments get. Not only does it benefit individual girls and women, it has wide ranging positive effects for the global community. Educating girls and women improves the health of children. Educating girls and women improves critical analysis and resistance to propaganda from groups like the Taliban. Educating girls and women improves the economic development of their communities. (Every 1 percent increase in women’s education generates a .3 percent increase in national economic growth!) That said, the women’s literacy rate in the norther provinces of Pakistan is only 3%. Here is the good news: Miss Madiha is applying community-based education approaches to raise the quality of education of girls, women, and families. Her innovative model integrates career counseling and technical training into the education the young women receive. So far, Madiha has enrolled 126 girls in local high schools, and the extended education programs she conducts. Madiha is raising money to continue working with the families and in larger communities to encourage parents to enroll their daughters in school. Just $10 helps pay for school supplies for these brave young women. Do this. It just makes sense.
