Youth, if educated well can undoubtedly be one of the main pillars of an exceptionally progressive nation and for an emerging country like Pakistan, education of underprivileged youth holds the key to its development. The Balochistan Education Endowment Fund (BEEF), a company set up working under section 42 of the companies’ ordinance 1984 is dedicated to promote quality education and is an innovative of the Government of Balochistan which was founded in the year 2014. BEEF is operational since second quarter, 2015 under the aegis of Finance Department, Government of Balochistan. Balochistan Education Endowment Fund (BEEF) has undoubtedly proved its worth by achieving the desirables during its infancy phase. This all happened due to the dedicated efforts of BEEF’s team members and by adopting best practices of a Corporate Governance. Being a member of the Board of Directors of BEEF and Chairman of the Scholarships Management Committee (SMC) and as a Secretary Secondary Education Department I personally am of the view that the contribution of BEEF has improved in overall Development of Education by giving a continuous support to the talented youth of this province which will ultimately reflect in prosperity in the years to come as well. Besides, I am pretty optimistic and wish that BEEF will keep playing its crucial role in promoting quality education in the upcoming years through a diaphanous distribution of scholarships to the meritorious and needy students of Balochistan.
