RABTT FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM – MID-YEAR TRAINING IN LAHORE & KARACHI
The Mid Year Trainings took place in Lahore and Karachi to gear up the Fellows for the next phase of conducting Follow Up Workshops for our Scholars. The rigorous two day training revolved around designing curriculum and activities for workshops, along with reflecting on particular subjects that Fellows wanted to focus on. The training also focused majorly on professional and personal development of Fellows by providing sessions on communication, ethics and decision making, and creative solutions.

We were invited by Coca-Cola Pakistan for the EMPOWER lecture series with students of FC College, Lahore, on the occasion of International Literacy Day on 8th September. Imran Sarwar, our CEO, engaged the students on a discussion around identity, self, and the role each individual plays in their own surroundings, covering the theme for the day ‘Reading the Past, Writing the Future’.
