through promotion of quality education and increasing literacy rate in

'25m children out of school in Pakistan'
Karachi: Pakistan has the world's second highest rate
of out-of-school children, with Sindh having the worst infrastructure
for schools, says a report on children's status released on Friday.
Almost 25 million children are currently out of school in Pakistan,
while seven million of them have yet to receive some form of primary
schooling, according to the report, titled 'The State of Pakistan's
Children Report 2011', prepared by Society for the Protection of the
Rights of the Child (Sparc).
The report is a grim reminder of how children's hopes for a better
future are fading in the face of persistent government failure to
The subjects touched upon in the report include education, violence
against children, child labour, health, minorities, floods and juvenile
Citing the National Education Census 2006 data, the report states
that the overall net enrolment ratio in pre-primary education is 43pc -
45pc for males and 40pc for females. "Provincially, the net enrolment
ratio is the highest in Punjab with 61pc, followed by Sindh, Khyber
Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan with 53pc, 51pc and 47pc, respectively," it
About basic infrastructure for schools, the report says that 65pc
schools in the country have drinking water facilities, 62pc have a
latrine, 61pc have a boundary wall and only 39pc have electricity.
"Provincially, the worst conditions are observed in Sindh, where 35pc
of schools are without building and in many cases without a boundary
wall. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and Punjab follow with 23pc, 18pc
and 10pc, respectively. There
are around 30,000 ghost schools throughout Pakistan, which continue to receive government funding," it says.
The report also looks into the damage caused by floods to school
buildings last year and records 9,800 such schools in Sindh and
Over 410,000 children are out of school due to damaged or occupied
buildings or unavailability of teachers, it finds. More than 40,000
children in temporary shelters have no access to education and nearly
729,600 children do not have learning materials.
It says: "Approximately 1,244 schools in Sindh and Balochistan were being used as shelters by flood-affected people."
The report states: "Around 600,000 children of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
were reported to have missed one or more years of education due to
ongoing militancy. A total of 710 schools have been destroyed or damaged
by the militants in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. A total of 640 schools were
destroyed in Malakand while 70 institutions were destroyed or damaged in
various other districts across the province. In Swat, 121 schools were
completely destroyed while another 280 were partially damaged by
militants over a span of two years," it adds.
According to the report, Pakistan has the lowest youth literacy rate
with 69pc (11.6m uneducated youths). Only 59pc of females are literate
as compared to 79pc of males in the age group of 15-24 years. Trends
show that the number of uneducated youth is growing with no substantial
efforts to increase the number of and access to technical and vocational
institutes and to address gender disparities, it says.
On children's health status, it says that Pakistan ranks in the top
five countries with the largest number of children under five who are
moderately or severely underweight. Forty-three percent children born in
Pakistan are afflicted by stunting (low height for age).
"Although full immunisation coverage of children between the ages of
12 and 23 months has increased from 78pc in 2008-09 to 81pc in 2010-11,
it is still short of the MDG [millennium development goals] target for
Pakistan (90pc for the years 2010-11).
"It is estimated that at the start of 2011, Pakistan was accounting
for nearly 30pc of all polio cases recorded worldwide with 197 cases
reported from different parts of the country. Eleven out of 152
districts of the country are especially affected by polio including Karachi, Peshawar, Quetta and three agencies in Fata," it says.
unjab tops in juvenile offenders ranking
On juvenile justice, the report says that the number of juvenile
prisoners increased from 1,225 in 2010 to 1,421 in 2011. They include
1,256 under-trial prisoners and 165 convicted juveniles. Punjab had the
highest number of juvenile offenders (833), followed by Sindh (318), KP
(241) and Balochistan (40).
The report points out that the Public Defender and Legal Aid Office
Ordinance Bill and Prisons Amendment Bill dealing with children of
incarcerated parents introduced in the National Assembly in 2010
remained pending in 2011.
Regarding cases of physical and sexual abuse, it says that 2,303
instances of sexual abuse were reported in the country last year. The
number of reported acid attacks has risen from 65 in 2010 to 150 in
2011. Although men and boys are also victimised, most acid attacks
involve women and girls between 15 and 25 years.
Punishments & seminaries
In a survey conducted by Sparc in KP, it was revealed that 76pc
parents approved moderate corporal punishment to correct a child's
behaviour. Forty one cases of corporal punishment were reported from
Peshawar alone during six months in 2011.
The cases of extreme physical violence against schoolchildren across
the country resulted in humiliation, injuries and even death, the study
"A large number of madressahs remain unregistered with government
authorities. The absence of government monitoring and regulation in such
seminaries allows clerics to administer extreme forms of corporal
punishments," the report says.
Last year 7,000 children were kidnapped in different parts of the
country. In Karachi alone, 3,090 of these children were kidnapped.
Floods in Sindh and conflicts in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Fata contributed
to a surge in kidnapping and trafficking of women and children, the
"In 2011, 250 children died in armed conflicts in different parts of
the country. Majority were killed in Fata and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Moreover, apart from life threats, the harmful psychological impacts of
prolonged conflicts affected thousands of children in the war-torn
regions," it says.
The report presents a sorry picture of the conditions children of
religious minorities are forced to live in. Last year, 27 Hindu children
were kidnapped for ransom in different parts of Sindh. Similarly, 500
Hindu families migrated from Balochistan to India following persecution
The primary school enrolment rate of scheduled caste Hindu girl
children is only 10.2pc while the national female primary school
enrolment rate is 48pc. Poor security situation in Balochistan has
forced Hindu parents not to send their children (especially girls) to
schools, lowering the school enrolment rate among females in the
Following the floods, members of the Dalit community in Sindh were
denied access to flood relief camps and even drinking water because of
their 'untouchable' status, the report says. Ahmadi students have been
especially targeted by hate campaigns.
Ten Ahmadi students, including seven girls, and a teacher were
expelled from a school in Hafizabad last year on account of their
religious beliefs, it adds.
According to the report, 2,000 girls from various minority groups
were forcibly converted to Islam last year through torture, rape,
kidnapping and forced signing of marriage contracts. Around 300 Hindu
girls are forced to convert to Islam every year, it says.
