Raja Rashid reviews steps for province-wise literacy
Punjab Minister for Literacy and Non-formal Education Raja Rashid Hafeez Friday said the transgender community has also been included in adult literacy drive to make them a useful organ of the society.
While presiding over a departmental meeting to review progress on literacy drive and the facility of co-curricular activities in non-formal schools, the minister expressed the satisfaction that resources have been provided to achieve 100 per cent literacy.
The department is working hard to materialise the efforts of promoting education in society, he said.
“In this regard, a composite literacy policy has been chalked out and the prisoners are also rehabilitated, along with the provision of education, so that they may become a useful citizen of the society after their release.”
The minister asked the officers to work hard for overcoming the shadows of the illiteracy in the society and to achieve the departmental targets. The incumbent government has fully activated the literacy department so that every citizen could be educated, he added.
