Islamabad

 
May 26, 2016

Islamabad: Minister of State Muhammad Baligh-ur-Rehman on Wednesday chaired the conference on 'Peace through Education' organised by the Human Resource Development Network and International Rescue Committee.

The conference was arranged in the context of successful implementation of “children education for Peace” model in FATA. It highlighted the current commitments of Government of Pakistan and all major donors regarding children education specially girls’ education in post conflict areas. This model successfully increased the rate of girls’ enrollment in extremely difficult areas.

Conference aimed to highlight the need for replication of such programmes to promote sustainable peace. The Brookings centre for Universal Education, USA, has already documented the project and published a comprehensive policy brief on it which was shared with the conference’s participants.

Talking on the occasion, the minister of state congratulated the teams of HRDN and IRC for conducting this successful program with the main focus on girls’ education. I am happy to see 63% girls’ enrollment in an area like FATA through this programme, it proves that nothing is impossible if we have a will to do it, he said.
