Education and Digitalization Is the Most Forceful Way To Attract Women to This New World

A recent article published by the World Bank shows that girls currently face various obstacles in education caused by poverty, laws, and culture. The data collected indicates that the important thing is to ensure that girls learn to compete like anyone else in the labor market. The findings reveal that women who achieve a higher level of education tend to be healthier because incomes are higher.

According to data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) and the World Education Monitoring Report (GEM), reveal that 263 million girls are out of school, that is, a quarter of the population. Of course, they highlight the enormous challenges faced by poor girls. In Pakistan they have the greatest disparity at the expense of girls, with fewer than 90 girls enrolled, for every 100 boys. However, experts say that girls who face multiple disadvantages, including low incomes, rural residences, disabilities, or ethnic origins, have no access to education, and even or worse, do not complete their studies.

On the other hand, poor services in their home, the lack of diversification in the infrastructures that allow them to better education (libraries, research cyber, among others), violence, and fragility also influence.

In short, despite all these data that emphasize the problems that Pakistan drags, the Organization for Digital Cooperation (DCO) is today responsible for considerably increasing social prosperity with the help of the digital economy. In addition, to promote common interests and digital change that provides benefits to Pakistani women.
