Yup, educate the people. Who would do it? Ah, we want our government to do everything without doing our share. West has developed not only that they have relatively good governments but also many volunteers, leaders who are interested in people development etc. Shafi you take the charge of educating the people and I'll follow you. And the rest will join in for the good cause.
