Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan launched Ehsaas School Stipend program for the deserving households across the country in Islamabad on Wednesday.
Speaking on the occasion, he said an important aspect of this program is that it will help bring the out of school children especially the girls to the educational institutions.
The Prime Minister regretted that no attention was paid in the past for the promotion of education and that is why about twenty million children today are out of school.
Emphasizing upon the education of girls to uplift the society, the Prime Minister was appreciative of keeping the stipend of female students higher in Ehsaas School Stipend Program.
He said the use of technology will help ensure transparency and no fake entries in the stipend program.
Imran Khan noted that it is responsibility of the government to extend facilitation and establish schools in areas where these are accessible to the children.
