Staff Report ISLAMABAD: Mobilink Foundation has launched the Teach 2 Transform (T2T) initiative in order to educate the underprivileged across Pakistan. The programme aims to involve Mobilink Torchbearers to offer teaching assistance at marginalized schools in the country.
The pilot phase for T2T was launched at the DSRA School in Karachi where 46 students benefited from teaching assistance provided by Mobilink employees. The students were tutored in subjects including Math, English and Science every weekend, and recorded a 100 per cent pass rate in their final exams.
This initiative has recently been launched formally in Islamabad at an open air school with several Mobilink Torchbearers participating to teach students ranging from class on to ten. The school is the first of its kind in Islamabad, being run under the supervision of its dedicated headmaster, Master Ayub, who has been running the school for over 27 years, and currently educates over 200 students without charge.
“The teach 2 Transform aims to impart knowledge as well as help young children gain an insight into the opportunities available to them. We will run this program in different parts of the country and look to reach out to children across Pakistan through our Torchbearers,” said Omar Manzur, Head of Corporate Communications, Mobilink.
