Mothers of Pakistan: Photo Story
will be celebrated on Sunday May 8, 2005 in the US. It's an opportunity to think
of all the mothers of Pakistan and of the world.
More importantly, think
about your own mother. How is your relationship with your mother?
What is the most special thing you can do with your mother. How about arranging
an evening to listen to your mother's life story? Can this be a day of break
for your Mom from the routines of life?
HDF is constantly helping
the poorest mothers of Pakistan with health, childcare, economic well-beings
and education. Visit
our photo stories illustrating how HDF's Health Programs save lives of thousands
of mothers. Let's celebrate the Mothers of Pakistan, who are symbols
of sacrifice for our nation.
Through this newsletter,
we also invite you to reflect on the scarcity of social capital and the lack
of youth involvement in politics in Pakistan.
Ten Things You can do for Your Mom!
Often, moms do virtually all of the giving and very little, if any, of the taking
from their families. They may not say it, but most of them want to be appreciated
in small ways. You don't have to buy them a car or a house (you could do that
too), but it's the small things that count with mom. What about giving your
mom a vacation? Don't think Hawaii. Think of a day away from the kitchen or
the home. [read more]

Why are the Youth not Visible in Pakistani Politics?
Political Participation of Pakistani Youth
Government policies with reference to young people are being drafted
and reviewed since 1989, when the Youth Affairs Division was first created.
It is encouraging that the 55 million youth of Pakistan are being focused upon
but this focus should be realistic and holistic. A policy that does not strategize
on how to facilitate young people to be active and informed citizens is a policy
that is going nowhere. [read
Scarcity of Social Capital
It is the widespread opinion about Pakistanis that they are brilliant
individually but far below par collectively. They lack group synergy. Whereas
four Pakistanis working individually produce five units each, but if one puts
them together, their combined output will be less than 20. They fail to harmonize,
and instead of facilitating each other, they obstruct one another. [read
