FRCE Career Counselling Program Pakistani youth is devoid of an IDEAL to follow whereas we know that almost half of the population falls under the age of twenty (56.5%).. They are lost in the search of an individual whose line of they follow will take them to success. One more dilemma is that the youth even being very energetic andtalented does not get the chance to display their inner talent. Joblessness, poverty and absence ofsupport from the government for increasing education level and its reach to the young generation.Moreover some political parties are usingthe energies of these very shiningyoungsters by putting them on the line ofmilitancy and weapons. In short theyoung generation lacks clear guidance,vision, leadership, education, monetarysupport from government and a clearpath. Having analysed this FRCE hasstarted Career Counselling programthrough which hundreds of youth are trained and counselled by renowned personalities so that youthmake peaceful and prosperous Pakistan
FRCE Health ProgramPakistan is the 6th largest state of the world having a huge flux of population living in ruraland urban areas. The Federal Government of Pakistan after taking her due share from NFCaward promise to fulfill the four major objectives i.e. security, education, health andsanitation. Unfortunately, only 1.5% of entire budget is allocated to health and sanitationwhich is insufficient. Secondly, the sanitary conditions are deplorable and the stagnant waterabsorbs 150 feet in the soil mixing up with clean water, which is spreading severe diseases.Owing to this poor sanitary condition W.H.O projected the idea of oral polio vaccination. Theinfrastructure is undeveloped. The basic health units in rural areas are not equipped enough tobetter the falling health of rural populace. If there are well equipped hospitals, the availabilityof doctors is not ensured. Glaringly, the quakes are performing in every nook and corner ofthe country without any fear of accountability. The medicine companies are indulging inminting money with the help of dishonest doctor, consequently killing many people. Lessattention is given to sterilize the tools and transfer of blood without disease. Because of thereligious myths and cultural barriers less attention is given to female health which results inthe increment of MMR and TMR. Focusing on the golden rule of “Health is wealth”, FRCEtaking appropriate measures for the betterment of health services in Pakistan. The awarenessprogrammes and medical camps are arranged to let the people know about the problems andremedies.
FRCE Educational ProgramEducation is the corner stone of any successful nation. At the heart of most thriving globaleconomies lies a dynamic educational system which prepares their youth to compete with thebest in the world. There is no doubt that prosperity of nations now depends solely on theintellectual quality of its human resource and investing in high quality education issynonymous with investing in the future of a nation. Unfortunately, this aspect in Pakistanhas been ignored ever-since its independence. Quality education remains the prerogative ofchildren drawn from a thin layer of upper crust of Pakistani Society. 70% of our people livingin villages are totally deprived of any quality schooling and consequently can play little rolein national policies and its development. This educational apartheid, with a tiny little eliteperpetually dominating country’s social life, its polity and economy, is a sure recipe for socialconflicts between the masses and the elite. The current social and sectarian tension and resortto fundamentalist tendencies by the youth, especially from remote and under-developed areasare manifestation of the impact of prevailing archaic system of education for vast majority ofour youth in underprivileged areas. It was these harsh realities that motivated the Founder ofFRCE Mr.Kaleemullah to make a beginning towards educating and grooming the brightestchildren from rural areas in the hope that these children will one day become role models fortheir communities by emerging as high class citizens who can demonstrate quality leadershipin diverse fields Having analyzed it FRCE has started to open schools in a different slum areaof Sindh province and providing free of the cost education to children of poor andmarginalized communities of the country, FRCE has not only opened schools but also hasappointed teacher in governments schools where was no any government appointed teacher.
