WEE Matter


As a developing country Pakistan faces many challenges which must be addressed in order for the country to prepare global citizens and compete in the global market. While we are pressed with a number of issues, education remains one of the key issue that still requires major intellectual and financial investment. In Pakistan, over half of the 5-16 year olds are out of education, 55% of that are girls.

Girls in particular are faced by additional issues due to their gender such as cultural, religious, access and poverty. We therefore, focus on the most deprived, and create innovative solutions to overcome these barriers. We believe that on ground work is critical to reach out, engage and deliver but equally strategic work is required on policy level to bring changes in its true sense.

PAGE is an umbrella organisation working towards creating an enabling environment that ensures gender equity in quality education. PAGE acts as a platform for stakeholders, donors, policy makers and practitioners to come together and address the gender gap in education in Pakistan and to create solutions to overcome the broader challenges the education sector is facing.

PAGE aspires to act as a coordinating and facilitating body between Pakistani and international organizations to achieve efficient:

PAGE aims to create a reality of gender equality, one where more women are increasingly entering the education system, one where women are earning more qualifications, one where women are participating equally in decision making and one where women are acquiring leadership roles by building more schools and training more teachers and by improving coordination among the relevant departments, elected representatives, donors, civil society organizations and communities (including parents).


Pakistan Alliance for Girls Education – PAGE initiative was launched by the World Congress of Muslim Philanthropists on the side lines of 2013 World Innovation Summit for Education – WISE in Doha, Qatar. 2013 WISE Summit was attended by number of prominent public and social sector leaders from Pakistan including the Minister of State for Education, Muhammad Baligh-ur-Rehman; Minister for Education, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Muhammad Atif Khan; Higher Education Commission Executive Director, Prof. Mukhtar Ahmed; The Citizen Foundation Founder, Mushtaq Chhapra; AMAN Foundation CEO, Ahsan Jamil; Joint Secretary Education, Muhammad Rafique Tahir; Deputy Secretary Education, Mukhtar Paras Shah; and many other Pakistani delegates.
“The alliance aims to turn a new page for girls by creating an enabling environment that ensures gender equity in access to education. WISE summit is indeed the perfect setting to launch PAGE as the project aligns with the vision of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser of delivering quality education to millions of  children across the world.” said the founding chair of the World Congress of Muslim Philanthropists, Dr. Sheikha Aisha bint Faleh Al Thani.
