More than 25 million children are out of school in Pakistan, which has the second lowest literacy rate in the world.

Seema Aziz is Pakistan's most successful businesswoman, founder of a high-end fashion business.

She's also the founder of CARE Pakistan, which runs 450 schools around the country, educating 195,000 children - but her aim is to reach one million.

She talks to Kathryn Ryan about her belief that access to schooling is the country's biggest opportunity.
