Warid Telecom, a reputed cellular company in Pakistan, joined hands with United World Colleges for an event that took place at Avari, Lahore. The gathering was aimed at bringing parents at single platform to share thoughts on progress of their children who are studying on scholarships at leading colleges and universities around the globe.
Warid Telecom and ProPakistani partnered to support the cause via social media in order to inform that anyone can access quality education on merit even if its unaffordable.
The United World Colleges is a movement of people across every country in the world. Their motto is “UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future”. The UWC, as it is better known, has been operating in Pakistan since 1977 as a not for profit registered body under the Societies Registration Act of 1860; purely driven by volunteers in every province. The UWC movement over the past 39 years has brought about immense positive change to the nation through its network of friends and extended family of alumni.
Despite the challenges within Pakistan, Warid Telecom firmly believes that positive social change and the ability to change perceptions will only happen if people start listening with the intent of understanding and that can only happen through education. With the objective of raising aspirations through awareness building in communities and across the country, Warid Telecom and ProPakistani have taken this initiative to enable people through the UWC platform in order to build a better tomorrow.
