Although Pakistan has gained significant economic growth despite political instability, there many profound concerns about the future of Pakistan, primarily combating extremism, high food and fuel costs, power shortages, and unemployment. 

Certainly, Pakistan’s geographic vulnerability to natural disasters such as the flood of 2010 attribute to their erratic poverty. Nearly one fifth of the country was submerged under water. In 2011, Pakistan suffered from torrential rain flooding, which exacerbated the food production and electrical outages caused in 2010.

Inadequate education remains central to resolve the looming issues for Pakistan; therefore, the necessity to educate children has become paramount in the 21st century, reflected in government initiatives and the international community’s support.
