Despite constituting a major chunk of the population, Pakistani youth are lagging behind in every field. They have a major role to play in country’s progress however due to lack of support they are facing many new challenges in today’s society: they are afflicted by an identity crisis, lack of self-confidence, a sense of hopelessness and confusion, and ambiguity concerning about moral issues and the future. They have been trapped in a culture marked by guns, violence, and drugs. All this has resulted in an unstable economy, a shattered confidence of foreign investors, lawlessness and a break-up of the social fabric.
The most profound problem Pakistani youth is facing at present is frustration. This monster is eating up our youth slowly and gradually. The youth in Pakistan don’t have jobs, means of healthy entertainment, health resources and awareness. The frustration as a result of a multitude of problems is increasing day by day.
Education is the most powerful weapon of the youth. With it, they could lead their country towards progress. Unfortunately, quality and skill-based education is still a dream for Pakistani youth, especially for the poor. There is no formal guidance for students in the logical selection of a specific course of study. There is no unified education system. Pakistani universities and colleges have become degree distributing machines. Education does not mean only degrees but in its true sense, it is the future of the youth.
