12 years of quality education
Pakistan’s Right to Education Act 2012 guarantees every child aged 5 to 16 the right to a free and compulsory
education. However, the act is not implemented — and girls are left without the education they need to build a better
future for their families, communities and country.
Pakistan’s education system is also critically under-resourced. The 2017 National Education Plan recognised the low
levels of investment in public education and set a target to allocate 4% of GDP and 25% of the national budget for
education. However, currently just 2.7% of GDP is allocated to education. There remains no specific strategy to
improve girls’ access to education.
