Who will take care of Sindh Education and Literacy . Sindh have only 56% Literacy + 10 years,and female Literacy rate is 42% only 20% rural female are literate . How many years Sindh rural will take to achieve targets and transform: The pace at which Sindh rural literacy is increasing since last 62 years, it will take another 30-50 year to achieve the target of 86% literacy in the province. Dear Readers and stakeholders! Certainly we all wish that Sindh may live long and flourish. No one can progress while living below poverty line. We ought to contribute practically to promote basic education and literacy in Sindh. Our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) Says,” Seek Education from cradle to grave” Sindh have 23 districts, 121 Taluka 1108 Union Councils and 49211 Schools, and Sindh have a large number of God fearing individuals. Simply 49211 devoted and God fearing peoples can change the whole scenario of education in Sindh through commitment and determination .

Dear Madam, We have heard so much about you and your achievements. As the chairperson of The National Commission of Human Development, may I take this opportunity to request you to immediately fire the director General of NCHD. We have seen his Videos and articles on the net. There have been emails sent to the House of Lords and just about when funding from the British Forum of Pakistani's was to go through, we began receiving calls from the British embassy in Islamabad on his character and activities. This is a humble request and we hope you will do the needful to bring back the reputation to the countr. Sincerely, Lubna Shahid Vice President (treasury Natwest Bank, W91nx, London.

great Nafisa shah has been instrumental in supporting the geniune demands and striving hard in addressing the needs of the needy and underserved communities. Most importantly the desparities with women in rural settings. I solute Nafisa shah for her bold stand against unlawful acts of very powerful so called politiciians (who took over as district Nazim after her in Khairpur). Her untiring efforts in reaching the helpless poor flood affectees is unforgetable. I simply pay homage to her and promise to support her stance unreluctantly for long time to come. God bless you Nafisa Shah. Please continue serving the poor communities as now. Dr. Mukhtiar Hussain Bhayo UN Officer in Afghanistan 0093-799226152
