In the Ibrahim Hyderi area of Karachi literacy rates are low, the youth is deprived of education even though the area has its share of private and government schools.
Various not-for-profit organizations are working to facilitate the local youth and residents; the Citizens Foundation topping the list.

Yet many of the young people remain idle or are working in the fishing business with family members. A look around the streets of Ibrahim Hyderi -- Photos by Dawn.com
