As you all know, education is and has always been the first priority of every country, but still we can't reach the goals we always aim at. Education emergencies are being applied to spread the awareness of a literate mind, but we are still struggling. The reason is that a poor father would not send his son to a school.

I don't know how to start this note or make the words suitable for everyone to understand. Well the affair and situation at hand makes it porous to understand.

When we talk about electricity, we think of it as a “want” such as for using computers, televisions and...
