Aqeel Karim Dhedhi's contribution in Country's education system

The address of the new government has made it pretty clear that we are facing a major crisis in respective terms. The debt of $90 billion is a huge amount considering our employment rate and education system. Both are way behind their respective points.

Almost 2.5 million children are out of schools and are busy doing irrelevant jobs or are a victim of begging mafia. The reasons are apparent and certainly not negligible. For one, building infrastructures have started decaying or there is no proper school at all, the faculty that is supposed to provide a better education is inexperienced or they are too old to attend the government institutions, the syllabus is that same old one which is in continuity since Zia ul Haq's era if not more, and most important one is the lack of limelight reflecting on importance of education.

What more reasons do you need to get convinced to stop your child from wasting his/her time and instead should opt for local jobs to earn bread for a living? Ask a parent their reasons for not sending their children to school and they will reply with such strong retorts that you will not have any further queries to ask or will to convince them further.

Aqeel Karim Dhedhi also started working when he was in the 7th grade and then work took all his time leading to putting an end to his education. However, he feels guilty for it but as a compensation, he grants money to schools and other educational institutions to better their conditions so as to attract people to earn their education.

Having said that, he is a great supporter of new government who claims to help in their other initiatives by giving money to students and fresh graduates with intellectual ideas for their startup businesses which will consequently work as an aid our nation’s economic conditions.

In an interview to Herald magazine he stated, “Bhai, I’ll give you the money. Take it from me. But don’t sell the ideas. Ideas are important.” More such powerful names are needed to help in flourish our economy and it's not possible without educating your citizens and supporting startup businesses and ideas.
