Read & Write Pakistan (R&RP)

Introduction
Read & Write Pakistan (R&RP) is the non-profit organization and was founded on August 22, 2015 at Islamabad under the umbrella of Pakistan Librarians Welfare Organization (PLWO) with a mission to motivate and instigate more people to read more. The main purpose of this program is to engage more and more people in reading and writing habits in order to make Pakistan an intellectual place.

Pakistan lacks literary eminence and the amount of emphasis to bring about an educational overhaul in the country is poor. This literal backwardness in Pakistan has resulted in the failure of Pakistan’s producing quality thinkers, philosophers, authors and theologians. Such lack of emphasis on the literary growth marks questions on our prospects of our emerging has an inhabitant of renowned nation and at the same underlines the intellectual decadents of the masses.

The culture of reading and writing is the bedrock of any nation’s educational system and any educational system that fails to provide the said culture is doing sheer injustice to the otherwise aspiring youth. The concept of falling in love with books as per interest and the manifestation of it through writing is something Pakistan badly needs at this stage.

Realizing the essence and vitality of it, Read & Write Pakistan is dedicatedly working to encourage and promote much neglected area of reading culture in Pakistan. Reading habits is not given due status in Pakistan which has resulted in disarraying the minds of young generation. The initiative “Read & Write Pakistan” is committed to make this oversight area, a priority, to stimulate reading habits in Pakistan through organizing different programs.
