" I am quite excited and honored to be a part of this Fellowship.This opportunity will help me grow and learn as an individual, and as well as a team player. Meeting new people, knowing other people and their culture is something which creates empathy and unity among us as humans. Learning from each other and helping through each other's shortcoming will help us create a wonderful bond. Moreover I am looking forward to revolutionize Pakistan technologically and in this fast paced world, technology has become a definite need for all of us and I want my Country to be at the same pace as rest of the world. People here are highly talented and all they need is a little guidance and motivation which I aim to fullfill "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Mahir Nau- Umar
The phrase 'Mahir Nau-Umar' in Urdu means skilled youth, and as the name suggests, the purpose of this project is to enable the students acquire skillets, for their personal and economic growth. Many people in Pakistan , suffer from unemployment and unfortunately the sole reason lies in our education system. The system focuses on theoretical and passive approach , instead of a more active and more practical one. Focusing more on acquiring various skills, rather than just getting good grades, Mahir Nau-Umar, will help students and deserving individuals in finding the financial stability and growth they need. By the end of 2020 the aim of Mahir Nau- Umar is to provide the guidance in form of online tutorials and workshops especially in their native language and train at least 200 individuals with the technological skills for their growth and financial stability
