Hardly ten percent youth in Pakistan make it to higher education institutions, women need more empowerment, SU Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Fateh Muhammad Burfat says in the 5th Youth orientation webinar at SU Mirpur Khas Campus
Youth, in spite of bewildering rise in science and technology in the world, still remain far short of academic limelight, especially in Pakistan where only ten percent of them become able to make it to varsities for higher education. Women in the country despite all global reforms still stay at a far lower social rung and need immediate elevation and empowerment.
This said Vice Chancellor, University of Sindh, Jamshoro Prof. Dr. Fateh Muhammad Burfat in his presidential address at the fifth episode of two-week-long online youth orientation sessions being organized at various SU campuses by SU Pakistan Study Centre under the umbrella theme of “Together, we are for Pakistan. Today’s session was meant for the students of Sindh University Mirpur Khas Campus”.
Dr. Burfat said youth in the country needed to imbibe virtues like tolerance, fellow-feeling, sacrifice, devotion, honesty and competence to turn Pakistan into an ideal state.
The vice chancellor felicitated SU-PSC led by its efficient Director Prof. Dr. Shuja Ahmed Mahesar upon continuing success of youth orientation webinars.
Urooj Saqib, Executive Member, Dukhtaran-e-Pakistan Project of Peace Global said increased female visibility in service sector had become an undeniable fact, adding that women were voraciously contributing to the country’s development in hundred thousand forms.
Jennifer Jag Jivan, Director, Christian Study Centre observed that there was greater need for cultural harmony in society. For, by respecting multiplicity of opinions and other social affiliations one could create a tolerant pluralistic society that served as catalyst for national progress, she stressed.
Director SU-PSC Prof. Dr. Shuja Ahmed Mahesar shed light on the programme purpose.
Earlier, Prof. Dr. Imamuddin Khoso, Focal Person, Sindh University Mirpur Khas Campus presented welcome note.
