Abstract

The goal of the current study was to determine how the Overseas Pakistanis Ministry influences the educational resources that children of Pakistani expatriates residing in Pakistan have access to. The study's objective is to get a deeper understanding of the ministry's support networks in order to enhance the educational chances for these children. The study uses a case study approach to investigate the specific policies and initiatives implemented by the ministry to support the education of Pakistani expatriate children. These consist of financial help plans, career counselling, language assistance, cultural orientation, counselling, financial aid programs, and entrance support. The study also identifies gaps in the corpus of prior research on the topic. A needs analysis to identify the specific challenges these students face, ensuring that policies and programs are inclusive, conducting a thorough evaluation of the effectiveness of the current facilities and support services, and investigating the long-term effects of government initiatives on the educational and professional outcomes of Pakistaniimmigrant children living abroad are some of these gaps. These research gaps must be taken into account in evidence-based policymaking and program formulation to properly support the educational needs of this student group.
