Many young girls in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province are discouraged from continuing their education each year because of the long distances between their homes and schools and the lack of affordable transportation options for them to travel.

Initially, the PTC (Parent-Teacher Council) fund will be used for a pilot project in remote areas of the province, according to the details provided by the Elementary and Secondary Education Department (ESED).
