AwazCDS-Pakistan is delighted to share the outcome of our 5 years struggle to get the Punjab Free and Compulsory Education Act 2014 notified; which was at halt since 2014 due to numerous reasons and self-interests of various stakeholders inside or outside the parliament and PUNJAB education department. Now, the law has been enforced and gazette notification has been issued on October 24,2022. We are very satisfied and contented today that we contributed a bit in supporting girls education agenda in Pakistan. Now, the struggle is still ON and we need to do further advocacy on its implementation. More power to each of you who is struggling to make this dream a reality for every girl!
