  Children's forum: A Pakistani view
Updated 09 May 2002, 16.24
Arshela wants the education system in Pakistan to be improved
Arshela came to the UN forum to get her voice heard about education in Pakistan.

"In Pakistan it's very similar to the rest of the world, we have upper, middle and lower classes.

Education is important

In the poorer families, some children can miss out on an education.

Islamabad is a major city in Pakistan

I think education is the most important issue, because there are lots of children in Pakistan who don't go to school.

When I go back home, I'll be travelling around to all the regional areas, to speak to people, mainly parents, about education for children and how important it is.

I also think children should speak with other children about what we should expect as children.

This is how things like the forum gets started, by children talking to each other."

Arshela, 14, Pakistan
