The meaning of education to children in Pakistan

For boys and girls in Pakistan, education is more than being literate. It is about changing their lives, and the lives of others. World Vision’s education program in the country ensures that boys and girls in areas hit hard by the 2005 earthquake have access to improved learning opportunities so that they can pursue their dreams of a better life. In Pakistan, an estimated 60% of children attend primary school and 40% of children attend middle school. Photos and text created by World Vision staff Dana Palade in April 2007.
