Affiliates in Pakistan are promoting quality education throughout the country.
As the unite campaign draws to its close, affiliates all over the world are joining the culmination events’ week with creativity and engagement. In Lahore, our affiliate COT has arranged meetings with hundreds of teachers from different communities and backgrounds, as well as students and scholars. In Karachi, the biggest city in the country, a caravan has travelled the area during three days, reaching thousands of people.
Taking the campaign to the countryside, educators have dressed traditional vehicles called “Tanga” with flags and banners with the Unite campaign logos, showing that the key messages of the campaign can adapt to any place and circumstance.
