With the current plight of sexual abuse and child molestation prevalent in the country, it is only about time that serious measures are taken towards awareness and precaution. Taking note of the situation, the Government of Sindh has now introduced ‘Life Skilled Based Education’ – which includes methods of protection from sexual abuse, in Sindh school curriculums.
While addressing a press conference in Karachi, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari remarked that the Sindh Government is taking all out efforts to adopt life skills-based education in curriculum across the province.
He said that the life skills-based education curriculum has been adopted at Fatima Jinnah Government School and it showed positive results, adding that the Sindh government hopes to implement a similar curriculum in 200 schools across the province.
Bilawal was joined by social activist and singer Shehzad Roy of Zindagi Trust, who hailed the efforts to raise awareness pertaining to child abuse among school-going children. The activist also took to Twitter to share this achievement and thank the government for establishing the programme, where he was also joined by Jibran Nasir and others in appreciating the effort.
