Male Madrasseh Students, Jhang , 26th November 2014


The NHDR team at IDEAS held a focus group discussion with a group of male Madrassah students, most of whom were aged between 15 to 29 years, to discuss the upcoming UNDP National Human Development Report and to understand the youths point of view regarding a) the burning issues that affect their lives and b) the changes they would hope to see in the society.

“We are very active in pursuing computers and internet as it enables us to spread their message of Islam to the entire world.”

“It would make much more sense to take pre-emptive actions such as bands for water overflow rather than giving money to affected as this doesn’t solve the problem.”
