Challenge

There are over 25 million school aged children in Pakistan not in school. Without education, critical thinking capabilities, and economic opportunities, impoverished youth are susceptible not only to poverty but vulnerable to recruitment into extremist organizations.

Solution

Marshall Direct Fund provides youth with quality education that increases self-confidence, improves abilities to make informed decisions, and ensures development of marketable skills so they can be contributing members of society. In addition, MDF provides opportunities for meaningful cross cultural dialogues with students overseas, addressing stereotypes, ignorance, and fostering more aware global citizens.

Long-Term Impact

Educating youth (and ensuring girls and women's education) improves conditions of poverty, the health status of children, and the economic development of their communities. Statistics reveal that for every 1% increase in education there is a .3% increase in economic growth. With greater professional opportunities, peace and prosperity reign over poverty and despair.
