Javed's Schooling in Pakistan
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     There's a young student named Javed in Pakistan. Pakistan is a country with over 164 million people. It became an independent country in 1947. This country is in Asia and is about two times the size of California.
 
2     Javed and the other children in Pakistan do not have easy lives. Many of the children are poor and need better health care. Many don't eat enough or don't get enough healthy foods. Only about half the children can even get clean water to drink. These are big problems to face. Perhaps the biggest problem Javed and the other children face, though, is schooling.
 
3     A good education has been known to change lives. A good education can help someone get a job. A good education can help a person make enough money to not live in poverty. A job and money can help a person find better health care.
