Aim High Girls Inspiration

27 April, 2017

27 April, 2017 · Social Action Project

Silver Oaks Schools & College and PAGE (Pakistan Alliance for Girls’ Education) collaborated to conduct AIM HIGH Roadshow for Senior School Female Students. 85 young ladies from Grades 8-10 attended the event. The purpose of this interactive session, conducted by role models, was to discuss ways of overcoming challenges and being inspired to continue moving forward in their lives. Feedback from the session was astounding, showing the positive impact and importance of role models. Motivation speakers were: Afshan Tehseen  - an experienced development practitioner who has now been working on community development on multiple fronts for 18 years, with NRSP, ActionAid, Save the Children, Unicef and leding Child Protection in Punjab; Maria Rana  - belonging to a rural family from a small village in Punjab, Maria is both a writer and an entrepreneur, who creatively managed to channel her love for literature and writing into a highly profitable online business, exclusively serving an International clientele. She is passionate about female empowerment inspires young girls and women to become the best versions of themselves and gain emotional, financial and psychological freedom; and Samrah Azam - a highly experienced corporate trainer, motivational speaker, CEO, and social entrepreneur, directing much of her energy towards several community projects for women’s health and education. She served as the Country Director, Pakistan of the Institute of Leadership & Global Education – ILGE, New York, USA before joining Vigo. We profoundly thank these role models, and Fajar Rabia Pasha (Director PAGE) for taking the time out to come and encourage our future leaders and for being so generous with their time – our students will also be able to access them for mentoring over the next six months. Stay inspired young Okaians, make a purposeful go of life and take the world by storm!
