March 23rd 2002 marks the 55th Pakistan Day. Considering that
Pakistan has scored the highest increase in literacy level in several decades,
we need to reaffirm our commitment to eradicate illiteracy and ignorance from
the country. HDF wants you to be a partner in this struggle. This newsletter
provides you with practical ways of how to do that.
While we have scored
this victory against illiteracy, Pakistanis are all worried about the prevailing
domestic lawlessness in Pakistan and India. What Pakistan can do to increase
domestic security is a question we explore in this update.
This month we
invite you to explore our educational flash movies on Pakistan, as well as the
Human Development Foundation's projects and services.
Another focus of
this update is the milestones, challenges and lessons that HDF's 2001 Report
offers us in the development of Pakistan. Don't forget to read HDF's insightful
report on its accomplishments.

HOW TO ENHANCE INTERNAL SECURITY IN PAKISTAN
Internal terrorism which has
created a situation of unofficial civil war has become a part of Pakistan's
landscape in the recent past. When will Pakistanis be able to achieve peace,
justice and security in their own country?

IMPRESSIONS OF A VISITOR TO HDF'S KATCHI ABADI PROJECT
"I noticed simplicity
in their [HDF's] presentation and working style. But the most important thing
which impressed me was their motivation. Their belief in what they are doing and
their determination to make a change. I extend my well wishes and support to
those who are working at "Ground Zero" in Pakistan."- Javed Suleman, MD, Sind
Medical College Graduate, 1986.
55 THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR PAKISTAN!
Just pick one thing you can to do for
Pakistan! Instead of waiting for some government to do something, let's work on
changing things by ourselves.
HUMAN DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION
The president of Pakistan appointed the "Task
Force on Human Development" this past summer, which was given the responsibility
to develop a human development program for Pakistan. On this commission, two of
HDF's officers and activists have also been elected. Hopefully, it will provide
us with a unique opportunity for collaboration between the government and civil
society organizations for the benefit of the masses.
