Pakistan’s historical achievement in the education sector of the Gilgit-Baltistan Region

GB (Gilgit Baltistan) is one of the regions of Pakistan that set a new record for spending on education as it has made human development its first priority.

Other than usual, GB’s regional authorities spent three hundred million rupees this fiscal year in order to meet modern educational requirements, which is an initiative from the regular budget. The regular education budget of 900 million rupees has been tripled by GB authorities this year.

Moreover, about 200 schools have been facilitated by several kinds of projects, which include computing, coding, mentoring, and different entrepreneurship opportunities as well for fresh graduates. Almost 20 thousand students are studying and learning from these projects.

Furthermore, all the higher and secondary schools have been converted to “smart schools” with variant learning courses. This is the first time for the inhabitants of the GB province that are using a modern study and learning system.

Libraries, sports clubs, and IT (information and technology) labs have been established in 200 rural schools for students. Moreover, about 700 new teachers were employed for this modern learning system.

Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) is one of the regions of Pakistan where life is so hard because this region is composed of drastic mountains, rivers, and valleys.

The inhabitants of these areas are totally dependent on nature for their survival. Furthermore, it is not as developed as other regions of Pakistan, such as the Punjab, Sindh, and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. So, the development of a modern educational system in such a remote area is a significant achievement for the authorities of the GB region.
