The Balochistan government has started enrollment campaign across the province to create awareness among the parents to get their children enrolled in schools for reducing the huge number of out of school children in the province.

Balochistan government was committed to enroll maximum number out of school children at primary level to raise literacy rate in the province under its “education emergency initiative”, an official of Balochistan government told media.

He asked the parents, teachers, political workers, district education officers and the religious leaders from the local communities to play their role for enrolling children who were not going to school. The government had increased the education budget from Rs 40 billion to Rs 56 billion.—APP
