Are there any individuals who care for Pakistani youth, stressed by the rise in inflation?

The answer to this question is sort of difficult because there are so many things that are happening in Pakistan. Specially inflation and how it is affecting Pakistani youth. During this challenging time of inflation, Pakistani youth might face severe problems like economic crisis, disturb education system, and job shortage.

Since its independence, Pakistan has faced many problems, like political wars, cultural realities, and economic crises. In this time of inflation, Pakistani youth face many problems like extremism, child labor, poverty, illiteracy, intolerance by weak economic conditions, inadequate education, poverty, fewer prospects for work and growth, unfavorable religious and political impact, bad peace and justice circumstances, and unfairness. Pakistani inflation has increased over the years in Pakistan’s history.


According to international news, over 75 percent of young people are unemployed, which doesn’t reflect well on the country. There were many rallies that took place last year against anti-student unions and unemployment, but no one took notice till now.

Those who are graduating are under stress about how to run their families, which, in turn, causes them depression and leads them to commit suicide or take drugs because there is no one to help. 136 people committed suicide in Pakistan last year because they were unemployed.

The unemployment rate has increased up to 6.3 % according to Labour Force Survey (LFS). You will find many young people with bachelors, master’s, and engineering degrees wasting their time doing nothing due to unemployment or doing something which is not related to their fields. It is all because of low industrial growth rate, high population, biased hiring’s, references over skill and experiences.

Education is the building block of the nation and the cheapest defense. In Pakistan, the primary completion rate is 33.8 in females and 47.18 in males, as approximately given by UNESCO, which shows that the 6th biggest country is still facing an education problem. The main reason is the upper hand, inequality, and unhealthy favoritism, standards between Private and Government schools, and standard between provinces to provinces.

55 % of the youth live in Punjab, another 23 percent in Sindh, 14 percent in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, and four percent in Balochistan. The remaining four percent are to be found in Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Kashmir, and Fata. As many as 30 percent are illiterate, not able to read or write. Only six percent have 12 years or more of education. But no one can stop anyone from expressing their feelings and aspirations.

The young are much more aware of the internet and know how to use modern technology, but they waste time on TikTok, though they can be creative. In this Pakistani inflation, there are so many talented students who are willing to come forward, but there is no one to give them a chance.

During the COVID days, when a pandemic shocked Pakistan’s economy, all those young people moved to freelance, which helped them a lot. They worked for international companies instead of their own local companies. As a result, Pakistan rose to the top 10 nations working as a freelancer.

Child Labor:

On the other hand, children are forced to do child labor. According to the International Program on the Elimination of Child Labor (IPEC), 3.8 million children in the age group of 5–14 years are working in Pakistan, out of the 40 million Pakistani children in this age group. There is no one taking care of those children who work really hard day and night so that they can run their families.

Though come to think of it there are many NGOs working but shown zero results or maybe it is only possible if you live in cities like Islamabad.

The kids are responsible for the nation’s future. A new Pakistan will emerge if the young are able to devote their efforts to serving society. Those who have already achieved everything in this must give a chance to the new generation so that they can come forward with many ideas. Our entertainment needs youth so that they can produce well-scripted shows and movies.

The government must let youths interfere so that they can also learn about politics and how to make Pakistan great again. This is not a job for one person, but all those educated and well experienced.

The only solution to overcome this youth inflation is to focus on youth and invest in them. Support them financially by providing them with good scholarships so that they don’t have to leave their country for any reason, like Pakistani youth inflation. Introduce them to new kinds of jobs like IT departments and freelancing so that they can depend on themselves, not the government. Increase the education budget and promote primary education and standards. Education in every province of Pakistan. Anti-drugs and anti-suicide campaigns. Increase import and export for employment, reduction of retirement age. Jobs on merit and skills. Provide education with examination criteria, the wide practice of learning from the heart, more scientific experiments and practice, and the most important motto of education and more institute should build so that maximum students can get their educations. Spread more positive messages and encourage them to think about how to get rid of Pakistani youth inflation. The youth are the building blocks of this nation and can only fight back Pakistani youth inflation with their energy and ideas.

“The power of youth is the common wealth for the entire world. The faces of young people are the faces of our past, our present and our future. No segment in the society can match with the power, idealism, enthusiasm and courage of the young people.” –Kailash Satyarthi
