Pakistan is now the 5th most populous country in the world with a population of 207 million – of which 55 per cent are under the age of 25.
Many face challenges in accessing quality education, experience entrenched gender inequality and confront other threats like child labor. In some areas, restrictive norms such as child marriage threaten girls’ health and safety and limit their access to schools, extra-curricular activities and career development, deepening the gender divide.
Right To Play Pakistan is expanding its efforts across the country, enhancing the quality of education, bolstering child protection and promoting gender equality. To date, our programs have helped cultivate over 3,000 Junior Leaders, aged 8-13 – mostly girls who not only empower themselves, but also act as inspiring role models for others.
