Our Mission

Pakistan is the 6th most populous country in the world, and is expected to become 5th by 2050.

Pakistan has traditionally been prone to natural and human-made disasters, which have disproportionately affected women and children. The covid pandemic accelerated the need for medical care resources, especially qualified doctors.

As peace returned to the FATA and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa regions in 2016, the government and foreign aid agencies have made progress in rebuilding institutions and infrastructure.

Squeaks aims to leverage off this momentum to promote women’s higher education via scholarship programs in partnership with local institutions. As the government focuses on rolling out other projects and elementary education, there is still a large funding gap in this space.

Higher education builds resilience and the ability to overcome adversity, enabling communities to recover quickly from conflict after peace has been established.

In the coming years, Pakistan will face a surplus of low-skilled workers and a lack of highly-skilled professionals – leading to potential unemployment. Also, the current female labour force participation is low at 15.8%, meaning that there is enormous scope for economic development by enabling women to contribute towards their families and communities’ welfare.

Squeaks mission is to contribute towards the socio-economic advancement of Pakistan by increasing women’s access to quality higher education, and subsequent employment opportunities.
