Staff Report

ISLAMABAD: US Ambassador David Hale has said education is crucial to lifting people out of poverty. Speaking at an event sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development’s Gender Equity Program to recognize the annual 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence, Ambassador Hale addressed this year’s campaign theme – From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Make Education Safe for All. “Education is crucial to lifting people out of poverty, improving living standards and quality of life, and reducing health and safety risks. But for many girls and women around the world, including Pakistan, it is difficult to access education and do so safely. That’s why I’m so pleased that the Government of Pakistan has made girls’ education a critical component of its national development strategy,” Hale said.
