TEDx Kids Islamabad

Saturday, July 7, 2012

First time in Pakistan TEDx Kids Islamabad has been organized. It's first of its kind of TED events in Pakistan. Eminent speakers will be making the day of students. Kids from different schools will be part of this event.

Pehli Kiran:
Event is held at Pehli Kiran. The Pehli Kiran School System is an initiative of the JAQ Education Trust, consisting of eight non-formal schools in katchi abadis of Islamabad. The schools are unique in that they cater to children from mobile squatter communities, who do not have access to basic educational opportunities.


While the school infrastructure is quite simple, consisting of open-air sheds, JAQ trust is striving to create a happy, child-friendly environment for better learning and caters to some of the most intelligent, creative, inspirational and fun young Pakistanis that we have had the pleasure of meeting.
