Pakistan Peoples Party Punjab’s social media head and provincial leader of the PPP Ms. Jahanara M Wattoo spent Saturday morning with children at the Pakistan Sweet Home and Government Junior School Modal Town here in Lahore.
She started her storytelling session by asking if one of the children would like to pick out a story. She told the children different stories followed by a discussion and then allowing the children to ask questions.
She said every story has a hidden message, and every story taught us something about humanity.
The event was part of education campaign Alif Ailaan’s Leading Through Teaching project, designed to prepare politicians to visit government schools in their constituencies and interact with students and teachers through storytelling.
The Kahaani festival organized at a city school witnessed some fun moments. As children from many schools participated in fun workshops learning various crafts like origami and puppet-making, what turned out to be the most fun-filled event was the Nagada workshop.
Alif Ailaan was founded to bring together and empower all those Pakistanis who want to respond to the country’s education emergency, and equip our children to succeed for themselves and for Pakistan.
