Mobilink Foundation has launched the ‘Teach 2 Transform’ (T2T) initiative to educate the underprivileged across Pakistan. The program aims to involve Mobilink Torchbearers to offer teaching assistance at marginalized schools in the country.

The pilot phase for T2T was launched at the DSRA School in Karachi where 46 students benefited from teaching assistance provided by Mobilink employees. The students were tutored in subjects including Math, English and Science every weekend, and recorded a 100% pass rate in their final exams.

The program was formally launched in Islamabad at an open air school with several Mobilink Torchbearers participating to teach students ranging from class on to ten. The school is the first of its kind in Islamabad, being run the under the supervision of its dedicated headmaster, Master Ayub, who has been running the school for over 27 years, and currently educates over 200 students without charge.

Omar Manzur, Head of Corporate Communications, Mobilink highlighted, “Teach 2 Transform aims bothto impart knowledge as well as help young children gain an insight into the opportunities available to them. We will run this program in different parts of the country and look to reach out to children across Pakistan through our Torchbearers.”
