HOPE – a charity in Pakistan embarked on journey of spreading education in Pakistan which began with one school has now a network of schools in all over Pakistan, where thousands of underprivileged are getting an opportunity to get quality edification through Formal or Informal schools. 

Recently eight students of HOPE Zia colony school visited Toyota Showroom for the the Toyota dream car art contest which is a global contest organized annually by Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), Japan with about 80 countries participating in the competition. Japan and Indus Motor Company (IMC) has been organizing it  in  Pakistan  for  the  past  5 years  as  part  of  the global Toyota initiative. This global contest is intended to create opportunities for children, offering them a platform to develop their interest in cars and expressing their creativity and imagination by drawing the “car of their dreams”.

At the end of the competition, students were rewarded with certificates and goody bags. Representatives of HOPE along with one teacher accompanied the students and guided them where needed.

HOPE- an educational NGO in Pakistan believes that Art is not meant to be looked at only for what it is. It is meant to stimulate thought because it allows viewers to draw their own emotions and pull from their personal experiences when viewed. It is very powerful in this way and it naturally develops critical and innovative thinking skills. Art also teaches many important qualities such as listening, observing and responding to multiple perspectives.

Students of HOPE were elated and thankful for such a wonder experience. Face painting and other activities proved to be a cherry on the cake for these underserved children.

Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child special in Karachi believes that art is a way of adding color and joy to a dreary life and hence facilitates any such activity which aims to explore children’s hidden talents.

Visiting Japanese Calendar Exhibition

HOPE – an NGO in Pakistan has always been striving for the betterment of society. From education and health to research projects, HOPE is always up to something that can contribute in the wellbeing of society. However, there are many entities that have been helping HOPE with its mission. One of them is Government of Japan which had funded HOPE to establish a Formal School in Karachi and later for the expansion of school.

Creativity is an inner source to express   one’s feelings; it may increase through different experience, knowledge, experiments, acquiring new skills etc. For this purpose HOPE - an educational NGO in Pakistan seeks different ways to make its students more creative and competitive.

Recently 44 students of HOPE school Zia colony were invited to the annual calendar exhibition held at the Japanese Embassy. Students were thrilled and amused by the vibrant iridescent pictured which displayed the true colors of the Japanese culture, nature and animals etc.

The exhibition was then followed by a documentary on the Japanese culture. The students immensely enjoyed their time there and found it extremely informative and exciting. The documentary told the story of how Japan has a fascinating and multifaceted culture; on one hand it is steeped in the deepest of traditions dating back thousands of years; on the other it is a society in a continual state of rapid flux, with continually shifting fads and fashions and technological development that constantly pushes back the boundaries of the possible.

HOPE’s Chairperson Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi is pleased to be working with the Japanese embassy which never fails in providing a helping hand in the eradication of illiteracy.

The Japanese embassy is providing a platform where children are motivated by the intriguing nature of the Japanese culture and can indulge into different forms of art and craft- a way to express their thoughts and opinions.
