QUETTA: Yasir Jan Notezai has bagged the second position in the International Climate Olympiad held in Kenya, setting the bar high for other school students aspiring to make Pakistan proud.

Notezai’s project was considered among the best projects, getting him the second place in the competition to bring a good name to Pakistan.

The award-winning success of the teenager has brought pride to all of Balochistan, especially his hometown of Chagai.

For Notezai, the achievement implies success of education over violence. At a time when anti-state elements powered by global forces are trying hard to bring a bad name to Pakistan, the victory of a Baloch student hailing from an underprivileged town of Chagai is proof of a promising future ahead.
