Khawaja Naseem visits Khud at Mughalpura School

Khawaja Naseem, the General Secretary of Khud, visited Mughalpura School this week. He oversaw the progress and development of a computer lab that is being set up. Moreover, he visited every single class room and motivated our young learners to never give up. He highlighted the significance of education, computers and self-learning, and concluded his address by raising his fists and encouraged the children to chant, "I can do it," every time they face a challenge in their life. 

During the visit, our GS found that our learners at Mughalpura School take their computer lessons a little bit too seriously. Most of them don't have computers at home, but they have this intense desire to learn typing. Yesterday, we found that our learners had developed these QWERTY paper-keyboards. While waiting for their turn to use computer, the learners practice typing on paper-keyboards. Surprisingly, this innovative invention has enhanced their familiarity with QWERTY layout.

Khud Expands

After a successful pilot of our ‘Khud’ self-learning through technology at Zahoor Public School, we are expanding our edtech's program reach.

In February, we started to roll out our program at Mughalpura School. The school is located in a marginalized area of Lahore. Though most of the students come from impoverished backgrounds, their spirits are effervescing with a quest for learning. Large majority of the student body in the school has never used a computer in their life, let alone had access to internet. Even with the little exposure of technology that we have given them, we can see that they are passionate to enhance their knowledge and become 21st century learners.

In addition the school has a vocational program for women within the vicinity. Here, women are taught embroidery, designing and given practical skill-set to become self-employed. A dedicated computer lab has been set up within the school that will provide the students opportunity to augment their aesthetics and become better fashion designers. Khud hopes that in coming months, these women will set up their own fashion website and blogs.

We extend special thanks to Khawaja Naseem and Ghulam Rasool for their contributions and support for our cause.
