She noted that Teach for Pakistan is an independent, non-profit company that is on a mission to build a movement of diverse and capable leaders who are committed to eliminating educational poverty in Pakistan. It is a movement where recent graduates and young professionals commit to teach in Pakistan's under-resourced schools for two years. They go on to become lifelong leaders working across all fields to expand educational opportunities.
Teach For Pakistan has developed collective leadership to work effectively towards education reforms in the long run. Partners of the network aspire to the vision that one day, all children will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education. She then explained the Teach for Pakistan Fellowship Programme and the application process. She also talked about the programme’s alumni success stories and their status in the job market.
