The Government of the Sindh firmly believes that quality education is the basic right of every citizen and is an essential component to meet the challenges of the rapidly changing scenario of the overall development around the globe. The Government of Sindh is keenly concerned to widely address the issues of the education sector by owning the slogan i.e. “Education for All”, aiming to meet the learning needs of all children, youth. The Government of Sindh in pursuance of this commitment enacted the “Sindh Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2013” fulfilling its promise with the people of this province. The Sindh Education Foundation, a major arm of the Government of Sindh for Public Private Partnerships in the education sector, is playing a vital role in assuring the access to quality education throughout the province in a credible manner for formal and non-formal education for children, youth and adults. The portfolio of the Foundation is greatly expanding this year with almost a thousand new schools in targeted areas all across the province, especially the underserved communities, deep rural pockets and far-flung difficult to reach areas. Hopefully, these schools will be eventually able to educate more than 250,000 children with focus to bring down the number of out-of-school children in Sindh which has been one of the biggest challenges faced by Pakistan.
