Access to educational facilities is limited in the rural areas of KPK. There are very few public and private sector schools in the settled villages and the city center. Moreover, it is difficult for children of many poor communities to access education from these schools because they do not have adequate means of transportation while living in difficult hilly areas. Girls in particular have to discontinue education after primary level education because their parents cannot afford to send their daughter to high schools near urban areas due to security reason. Likewise, lack of public transport in the hilly terrains coupled with excessive expenditure on transport fares forces parents with low economic status to keep their children out of schools.
