Education has always been one of the most vital factors for the progress of a society. More so, in this era of rapidly advancing science and technology and boundless communication, being educated is an obligation because without that you will not be able to get your voice heard. Unfortunately, in places like Quetta, Balochistan which is a remote city in a developing country, education has remained inaccessible to a lot of boys and especially girls who have grown up to become parents now. Some of the women have not even received the most basic education and face lots of hardships in day to day life dealings. Due to this, most of these parents find it hard to understand the mindset of their children and this has affected parenting very much and increasing a gap between mother and her children.
Thus, to cater for the needs of the society Women Initiators started a campaign of providing basic education to the unschooled female parents to help obtain basic education which can be helpful in their daily lives and train them to get along with the changing traits of the society by improving their communication skills which will help them in managing their lives. In addition, as a part of this initiative informative seminars have also been conducted to give awareness on different topics such as women’s health, management of home budget and entrepreneurship concepts to these females who already have the small business and works at home.
