The project had been delayed for long. Ibrahim said the college would add to the array of educational institutes in the capital. “It is a great moment that an independent college of home economics for girls is being established. “Pakistani women are working side by side with men in every field today. It is the government’s responsibility to provide opportunities to girls to develop and enhance their skills, he said.
