Female education

Comparison  of  data  for  men  and  women  reveals  significant  disparity  in educational attainment. United Nations sources say that in 1990 for every 100 girls of primary school age there were found only thirty of them in school; among girls of secondary school age, only thirteen out of 100 were in school; and among girls of the third level, grades nine and ten, only 1.5 % were in school.

Pakistan has never made a systematic, nationally coordinated effort to improve female primary education, despite its poor standing.  Some times back it was assumed that underlying reasons behind low female school enrollments were cultural, social and environmental but research conducted by the Ministry for Women’s  Development  and  a  number  of  international  donor  agencies  during

1980s revealed that danger to a woman’s honor was parents’ most crucial concern “The Organization” is working diligently, seriously to educate girls so that they can adjust themselves in the society with their heads up and can survive in this tough, demanding world. “The Organization” has established a school in which girls are educated. The teaching staff solely comprises of female teachers so as to provide a comfortable environment to girls and also their parents who show concerns over that.

 

Antinarcotics

Drugs are abused all over the world today and unfortunately our country is victim of this abuse. Addicts lose their dignity and respect in the society and in the family. They is seen with disrespect and disgraced everywhere in the society.

Medical complications are common among recreational narcotic users, arising primarily from the non-sterile practices of injecting. Skin, lungs and brain abscesses, endocarditis, hepatitis and HIV/AIDS are commonly found among persons with narcotic dependencies  who  share  syringes  or

inhale the drug.  Drug effects depend heavily on the dose, route of administration and previous exposure to the drug.

“The Organization” has an objective of fighting against this abuse and aims for drug free Pakistan. It has arranged various awareness programs on drug abuse highlighting  harmful  drugs  effects.  These  awareness  programs  were  for  the parents, girls and boys so that everybody could know about its symptons and negative effects. “The Organization” has also established a rehabilitation center for drug addicts, at Peshawar, so that they could live a respectful life in the community.

 

Health and hygiene

Pakistan’s health indicators, health funding, and health and sanitation infrastructures are generally poor, particularly in rural areas. About 19% of the population  is  malnourished.  There  are  30  percent  of  children  under  age  five among them who too    are malnourished. Leading causes of sickness and death include  gastroentritis,  respiratory  infections,  congenital  abnormalities, tuberculosis, malaria, and typhoid fever.
