March 2016


Rabtt is proud to announce the launch of an exciting and challenging new program – Rabtt Future Leaders in Education!

Through FLE we aim to bring empathetic, child-centered teaching to classrooms across Pakistan, working with and learning from teachers who form the backbone of our education system.

We collaborated for this program with Akhuwat – an organization that always inspires us with their rigor and passion – as they pledged to improve performance and learning outcomes in 100 public schools across Faisalabad and Jhangg districts, under PEF Public School Support Program. This education revolution starts with a compassionate and enthusiastic teacher.

We developed, with guidance from multiple corners, a 5-day Teacher Training for over 300 shortlisted teachers, conducted 23rd – 27th March, 2016. Training modules focused on teachers’ identity and role in society as teachers, their motivations and responsibilities in this role, community engagement, verbal & non-verbal communication, lesson planning & micro-teaching, team building, ethics, and classroom and school management for a more empathetic learning environment. Most of all, through a combination of activities and discussions, our Trainers and Akhuwat Team connected with the teachers over the course of 5 days, and collectively imagined what quality education in Faisalabad and Jhangg can – and will – be.

We are thankful to all the teachers for their enthusiasm, contribution, and genuineness; to Akhuwat for their continuous support and hospitality; and to our amazing team of Trainers who endured countless debrief sessions and limited hours of sleep but didn’t settle for giving anything less than their best.

FLE is off to a great start – as we evolve, we hope we never forget to connect, educate, and learn.


Rabtt helped Uber design training modules on Preventing Sexual Harassment for its drivers, as the ride-hailing app launches its operations in Pakistan. The modules & training session focused on informing participants about what constitutes harassment, the legal structures in place to punish harassers, and most importantly–helping them develop more empathetic dispositions.



The application for Rabtt Fellowship Program 2016 is live and we have already received hundreds of applications! Spread the word for us as we embark once again on a journey of learning and unlearning with over 120 Fellows this year.

For ‪#RFP2016 we will be recruiting Fellows for LAHORE & KARACHI who will engage students through Summer Camps and Workshops from summer 2016 to spring 2017. For all relevant details visit:


The 2015 Rabtt Fellows cohort graduated in March, after learning from the students and teaching us so much through the year. We spent the 2-day culmination training talking about them, and where they want to go from here. Watch out, world, there are change makers among you!
