Karachi—With an aim to inspire underprivileged children to pursue education for a better life, The Dawood Foundation (TDF) organised a fun-filled and interactive summer camp at Dawood Public School.
An official said on Tuesday that the two-week summer camp has over 100 children from various upbringings, including street children, who are being guided by experts of subjects.
He further stated that the programme is specially designed to let every child explore and exhibit their creative flare. It refines the unique skills that every individual possesses and provides a rich learning opportunity.
The camp includes activities pertaining to the fields of Science, English, Arts & Crafts, Computers and Music amongst others.
The Arts & Crafts module transports the kids to a colourful and imaginative journey of learning while having fun. The Music lessons give the children an enthralling experience of singing in a choir for the very first time. Likewise, the English sessions are meticulously planned to inculcate the basic understanding of Grammar, equipping the children for their future endeavours in English language.
In the Computer Lab, students are profoundly interested in playing games and learning hands-on Microsoft Office. Since they have never operated a computer before, the aura brims with excitement. At the Science lessons, they get a chance to experiment with real-life objects.
Speaking about this initiative, Syed Fasihuddin Biyabani, General Manager, TDF said: ‘We believe that imparting education to this segment of our society would help us in bringing positive social change. Through this summer camp, our teachers and staff are dedicatedly inculcating learning, critical thinking and problem solving skills among these children. In this way, we are able to amplify their self-confidence’.
The camp centres on the idea of inclusivity children hailing from underprivileged backgrounds.
