It is widely believed that education is one of the most effective tools to eradicate poverty, promote social growth, produce creative people and create a highly innovative social environment. It is quite amazing to find that poverty and education are paradoxically linked – when one is improved, the other is reduced. Despite all other social and economic challenges, Pakistani universities are making great efforts to improve the higher education system.
