Shehbaz Sharif, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, launched an innovative ‘Schools on Wheel’ program on Tuesday to bring education to the doorsteps of children, particularly those residing in rural areas.

In his address at the launch of mobile schools, he asserted that the initiative would bolster the country’s literacy rate, especially in rural regions. The first phase of the program will deploy eight buses to provide primary-level education to children in Islamabad and its surrounding areas. The buses have been outfitted with top-of-the-line amenities such as computers, desks, whiteboards, and LCDs to enhance the quality of education.

Mr Sharif affirmed that the government would scale up the project by expanding it to the rest of the country and Azad Kashmir, in addition to increasing the number of buses. He expressed his delight, stating that the project would facilitate rural children’s integration into the mainstream education system and overcome the challenges of inadequate educational infrastructure in these areas.

Furthermore, he stated that the mobile library would encourage children to develop a reading culture, which would help them broaden their horizons and learn new ideas.

He highlighted that education is a crucial factor in creating a developed and cultured society.
