Pakistan has a young population of 180 million growing at 1.5-2% per annum, with 65% of the population below the age of 25; the Country requires a minimum of three schools every hour to accommodate an incremental 3 million students each year.

Existing illiteracy rate is at 50%, and while enrollment numbers at 90% indicate a positive trend, the average schooling years stands at just 7 years, implying a high drop-out rate much before higher education commences.

The low  number  of  universities is significantly reducing the Country’s potential to produce leaders. The existing situation cannot be solved by a traditional bricks and mortar solution alone, but  will  require  a  coordinated  and concerted effort  which  takes  into  account establishing more educational institutions, raising the standards of existing ones,  teachers’ training programs and the use of information technology for knowledge dissemination across a large population.  Every year ASER Pakistan (Annual Status of Education Report)

publishes new statistics which portrays a bleak scenario of the demographics and standards of education in the country although it is sparsely sprinkled with speckles of hope. TDF is actively committed to play its part to augment this hope through its many educational endeavours.
