The true strength of a country is determined not by military and economic power but by the strength of education and character of that nation. Therefore, in this section the real focus would be on the education sector of Gilgit-Baltistan and here G-B SWO would provide information and statistics regarding the education status of G-B. It will also offer data about the reserved seats in engineering universities, medical & polytechnic colleges and other academic institutions for the candidates of Gilgit-Baltistan across the country. The organization in its own capacity would inform the G-Bians about the currently excelling institutions/universities of the country as well as abroad and it would steer them through its advisors and coordinators in deciding their profession. It will also facilitate G-Bians to get scholarships in any stage of their schooling by creating awareness and highlighting useful links/associations of various government and non-government organization.
