Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday launched the Ehsaas Education Stipends Programme for “deserving” families so that they could send their children for education.
Addressing the launch ceremony for the Programme in Islamabad, the premier said that 20 million children not going to schools was a “major issue” for the country, and regretted that due importance was not paid to their education, adding that it was important to rectify the issue.
He said a country’s biggest assets “are its people” and that not providing them education was akin to “wasting your asset”.
“By denying the opportunity for upwards [social] mobility, you do a great injustice with that segment,” he said.
The stipend initiative, the premier said, would serve to “incentivize and encourage” children to attend schools.
The prime minister particularly highlighted how more girls were out of school than boys. “We did not give importance to education but especially, and unfortunately, we did not give importance to the girls’ education,” he said.
The prime minister said that a well-educated woman was of greater benefit to the society than a well-educated man because she “teaches her kids and changes the entire system of her household [such as] health and wellbeing of children, which have a lot of societal impacts”.
Ehsaas Education Stipends Programme Successfully Launched By The PM Imran Khan
Did you know over 20 million children in Pakistan are out of school? That is primarily what Imran Khan is all set to change with the Ehsaas Education stipends. These stipends might just start bringing the Tabdeeli Imran Khan has been talking about but can this work? Let’s find out.
Ehsaas school stipends program is now extended to higher secondary level. Students of class 6th to 10th will also get a quarterly education stipend.
According to the details, Benazir Income Support Program Board has formally approved the inclusion of intermediate first year and second-year students in the Wasila Education Program.
Why Is It Focused On Girls in Ehsaas Education Stipends Programme?
Of the 20 million children out of school, most are girls. Girls are not sent to schools not only because their parents don’t deem it safe but because their education is not believed in. Imran Khan would like to change that and the Ehsaas Education Stipend is his strategy.
He believes the stipend will encourage parents to send their children, particularly girls, to schools. Khan believes that an educated woman can contribute more positively to society and is proud of Ehsaas to give more to girls.
He believes parents do want to educate their daughters but the distance to schools or unavailability of female teachers is a factor.
