What started as a project to help improve the English language skills of underprivileged kids turned into something a lot more for the group of volunteers who ventured out to teach students at the Dar-ul-Shafqat, an orphanage in Pakistan.
With activities ranging from English language workshops to playing cricket and letting the kids sing in turns, the whole month was a delight for the whole team of volunteer students from various privileged private institutions of Lahore including LUMS, LSE and LGS. Our program included a whole month of not just English workshops but arts training and a debate camp, and helped give each and every student a whole new flair of confidence.
It ended with a whole day packed with debates, a singing competition, face painting and a celebration of Pakistan’s Independence Day. The video covers everything we did over the month with pictures and small clips that I put together during the course of the project.
I hope this video will help to spread the word that each and everyone of us has a part to play in building a better educated society whether we’re in government or private institutes or are just students in private institutes
