UNESCO in collaboration with the Pakistan National Commission for UNESCO (PNCU) organised a goodwill event in a local street school being operated by Master Ayub Khan in Sector F-7, said a press release.
UNESCO Country Director Dr Kozue Nagata and PNCU Secretary General Amna Imran Khan along with other staff visited the school.
Dr Nagata distributed among the children some sets of disaster-related games and pictorial books on numbers and alphabets. Master Ayub explained how the school evolved 28 years ago and how children graduated from the school are now absorbed in the world of work. He also introduced his team of volunteers teaching the children in the school. Most of them were the product of the school itself.
“It is my passion to help as many deprived children as I can by bringing them to this school for an education. It gives me a sense of satisfaction when I see them grow educated and get jobs,” Ayub said.
