Is Anything Changing?

The PM was quick to criticise the past governments for neglecting the education sector. This is not all and this is not new. Only last year, the Federal Minister of Education, Shafqat Mahmood announced more scholarships. Under the Ehsaas Ehsaas program through Higher Education Commission (HEC), many scholarships were given to high-performing students.

Shafqat Mahmood himself said, “We will be providing 50,000 scholarships through the Higher Education Commission [HEC] under the Ehsaas program.” Last year, Prime Minister also announced 170,000 scholarships for skill development under the Kamyab Jawan program.

The Changes This Can Bring

Empowering the education sector is where true change lies. If we build the education sector on strong grounds then we will be sowing strong seeds for our future. In Pakistan, not only is education secondary to marriage or work but it is also unaffordable for those who wish to provide it. These scholarships will encourage everyone to dream and work hard for what they want.

This is especially important nowadays as COVID-19 hampers many people’s ability to go to school.
