Why is EFA important?
Pakistan is a developing country, steadily transforming from agriculture-based economy to an increasing share of industry and services sectors. Country spends a major portion of its budget to address challenges of national security and interest payments on its loans. This leaves a relatively smaller amount to be invested on infrastructure development to boost economic growth and enable social sectors to meet basic needs of the people like education, health, social services etc.
At present, about one third primary school age children are out of school, 42% population (age 10+) is illiterate. At the national level, about two third women of age 15+ cannot read and write, and 35% girls remain out of school. It is estimated that over 6.7 million children are out of school, and majority of them (62%) are girls.
