The Dawood Foundation Organizes Summer Camp 2017 to Realize Dreams of Underprivileged Students
The Dawood Foundation is conducting a summer camp at Dawood Public School for underprivileged children to inspire them to pursue education and realize their dreams. 115 children are participating in the three-week summer camp from various upbringings guided by experts in art and crafts, computer, yoga, science, music, indoor and outdoor games. The camp is organized in partnership with Pakistan Science Club, RoboTech and GarbageCan.
The aim of the summer camp is to educate children in a fun-filled environment where they would feel free to exhibit their creative flares. The Arts & Crafts module embarked kids on a colourful and imaginative journey mixed with fun and learning. The Music classes let them have a jolly good time where they sung their favourite rhymes and songs.
Pakistan Science Club sparked the love of science in excited children with their basic experiments that captivated the young minds. RoboTech is teaching children basic maths through abacus and quick math techniques while GarbageCan is educating children regarding Karachi’s trash crisis and how to reuse, recycle, reduce. This gave young minds to come up with great solutions to manage waste!
Likewise, yoga practice instilled in them the notion of physical fitness and wellbeing coupled with the excitement of indoor and outdoor games. Over at the computer lab, government teachers are introducing the knowledge of MS Office and InPage.
Speaking about this extraordinary initiative, Mahvash Roshani, Principal O levels, Dawood Public School said: “We believe that imparting education to this segment of our society would help us in bringing a 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 centred on the idea of inclusivity for children hailing from underprivileged backgrounds. It comprised of students from Rahat-e-Islamia School (adopted by TDF), Khatoon-e-Pakistan Govt School, children of support staff at Dawood Public School.
