It is very important to connect social relations on the basis of equality with others. A society is responsible to provide quality learning and training opportunities to children.

    The gender discrimination is course for Pakistan and creating many problems. Recently, we have an example of Pakistan’s brave daughter “Malala Yousaf Zai” who fought against extremists and terrorists. Some areas like FATA, North Waziristan and other parts of KPK are affected through terrorism. The girls are threatened by extremists and terrorists; they are not allowed to go for training even for shopping. From 1947 in different decades maximum girl’s schools have destroyed during terrorism and extremism in these areas.
