Education for girls

Education for girls

Despite the fact that the provincial government is giving top priority to education in poor and backwards regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), there is still shortage of schools and colleges for girls living in these areas. In Malakand, the number of out-of-school girls is quite high. Due to various cultural and social restraints, girls are not allowed to continue their studies after primary school. This is the reason why women living in Malakand division cannot compete with the women of much advanced and developed regions. The area has so many talented and intelligent women.

However, outdated customs and traditions do not let these women excel in their lives. Additionally, girls cannot complete their education because there is no separate education institution for girls. If an all-girls college or school is built, parents will be more than willing to send their daughters to school. The provincial government must set up a women-only university in the area so that all girls can complete their studies.
