Education is the sole key to progress. All the progress and development in the world is only due to education. It is one of the areas in which a high participation rate of population is very important for socioeconomic development. Unfortunately this participation rate is very low in Pakistan and especially women have been lagging behind in this area. This is progress generally true of all under developed countries. Females are more than half the total population and constitute 53% of the total manpower of the country. A country with low participation rate of education can not face the challenges of the 21st century.

education to the people. It is education which leads the way to progress and development.
