CARE has launched its Mentor-ship Program, Lead to Succeed. The month long program focuses on four core areas: self identity, leadership, self-esteem and personal vision.

We wish the mentees and their mentors all the best for the next few weeks as they learn and develop together.

CARE Students took part in the Plan9 – PITB’s Tech Incubator #Makerfest conducted by DIY GEEKS. The students had a fun and learning-filled day. From an introduction to Arduino to the importance of recycling, the students got to take part in various activities which made them curious to learn more about technology.
Last year we partnered with an Australian brand called, MOGA. The fashion brand uses fabric and color as a means to unite women around the world. MOGA is a social enterprise at heart that strongly values equal opportunities for girls, which is why they recently dedicated a certain percentage of their sales to CARE! Many thanks to MOGA and their generosity! Their initiative has given us enough funds to revamp infrastructure and facilities at one of our girls’ schools!
This month, five of our incredible students participated in a Science and Technology based program…IN JAPAN!!!!!! While in Japan, they met Nobel Laureates, attended informative seminars, and conducted experiments alongside scientists and renowned professors. Even though they had a very busy week, they managed to visit several historical sites as well! Overall, it was a very enriching experience for our kids, both personally and academically. They traveled outside of Pakistan for the first time, teamed up with a diverse array of students, learned about a different culture, and familiarized themselves with new research methods! Many congrats to: Ieman Shakeel, Maryam Ijaz, Kishwar Mirza, Abu Bakar Khalid, and Hashim Inayat Ullah!
This week, our students from CARE adopted Charrar & Qainchi participated in the 2017 Young Entrepreneurial Summit organized by the LUMS Entrepreneurial Society (LES). They had to pitch an idea for a sustainable product and work on it together as a team. This was a valuable experience for our students since they had a chance to work, think and innovate like entrepreneurs.
