Pakistan faces a serious challenge in providing its children with a quality education. Poor learning outcomes are a major reason why children drop out before completing primary school.

The performance of Pakistani students in Maths and Science subjects is a cause of particular concern. Test scores reveal that students in Pakistan consistently score the least in these subjects.

Alif Ailaan’s Maths and Science campaign is about putting the issue of learning outcomes at the core of the education conversation, and, crucially, about giving Pakistan’s students the building blocks of a sound education.

Alif Ailaan is devoted to getting all of Pakistan’s children in school, staying there and learning well. Maths and Science are crucial subjects for a child to learn and can be inspirational when they are taught well. We asked these notable Pakistanis to describe what part of their education in Maths and Science had stayed with them as adults.
