The CAP Outreach Tours encourage students to share their ideas and understanding with the facilitators and other students.
Workshops on the theme of cultural diversity in Karachi were held at one of the partner schools where students learned about the various small communities residing in Karachi. Students were able to appreciate the sub-cultures of these communities, whose lifestyle is influenced by their occupations and origin.
In another partner school, workshops were conducted on connecting the past with the present and students were able to explore and appreciate the inventions and innovations that have taken place through the ages.
In addition, students were familiarized with the historical river civilizations present in the region of Sindh. An overview of the city of Moen-Jo-Daro and development in the region in cities such as Larkana was discussed.
The College Outreach Tours program also started during the last month. The team reached out to college students and briefed them about workshops that will be conducted during the course of this term.
