Quotes

"Humanity, like armies in the field, advances at the speed of the slowest."
"There is nothing left here. We don't have electricity, we don't have gas, we have an acute shortage of water, so what is left for us?"
Speaking on the occasion Secretary Youth Affairs, Sports, Archaeology and Tourism, Government of Punjab, Mohammad Khan Khichi said, "In line with the Adolescent Strategy launched by the YASAT Department, the Department is committed to uplift the lives of marginalized and excluded adolescents and youth of Punjab. Through this partnership, we look forward to working with PVTC & UNICEF to provide vocational skills to marginalized so that they initiate their small businesses and get employment to support their families."
"The project initiated by UNICEF through the funding of the Norwegian Committee for UNICEF is focusing on the provision of equitable access to education for most marginalized children, especially girls in three districts of Punjab,” says Sehr Qizalbash, UNICEF Education Officer. “These non-formal schools have been set up in areas where the communities access to formal schools was difficult due to distance, hence their non-willingness to send children at a distant school. In these remotest areas, girls like Rabya have emerged as role models and have motivated communities to send more children to schools, who otherwise would have been deprived of this fundamental right.” "
