LAHORE:Punjab Minister for Literacy Raja Rashid Hafeez has said that the government has launched a number of projects to improve literacy rate in the province.

He was addressing a ceremony organised by a non-governmental organisation (NGO) for distribution of school kits among children of rice growers on Thursday. The government officials, rice millers, development sector organisations and children were also present. The minister applauded the efforts made for the development of marginalised segments of society. He said the government was committed to 100 per cent literacy rate in Pakistan, adding that the private sector role was important in that regard. He said that the government would sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the private sector to make collective efforts to enroll all out-of-school children to schools/literacy centres for raising literacy rate.
