250 students of Air University pledge to become peace ambassadors

 ISLAMABAD – As many as 250 students of Air University pledged for saving their motherland by becoming ambassadors of peace, as School of Leadership organised the second session of their nationwide campaign named ‘Shabash Pakistan.’

Shabash Pakistan is a nation branding movement started by the School of Leadership (SoL) unveiled their first event in NUST with collaboration in Bazm-e-Pakistan Society. The movement aims at reviving patriotism and “Pakistaniyat” in the youth of Pakistan to create a positive image of Pakistan in the international arena.

Shabash Pakistan is a series of three one-day sessions in four universities, which will be divided over three months. The target audience is the undergraduate and graduate students.

Umair Jaliawala, the trainer, kicked off the second session. The event took off with the national anthem. The theme of the session was “Main” (I) and the power of ‘I’ in bringing a social change in the society, by taking personal responsibility. Speaking on the event, Umair said that it is high time the youth started taking action about the things they do not like happening, because if one is being affected negatively by a particular situation, it should be he to be the first one to take action to change it for himself instead of waiting for others to come and save the day.

Games and exercises along with the group discussions were carried out to making the youth realize their hidden passions. The session ended with an action planning, which was in fact an individual answer from each participant to the question “what will I personally do to bring positive change?”

The methods were unlike the conventional educational and personality building methods. The young blood was taught in an interactive and participative manner, which is actually role-playing in itself. Everyone was made to prove their presence. They were mainly led by questions.

Talking of the fruit, here is what SoL looks forward to reap: The first objective: making the Pakistani young blood more loyal to the brand that is called “Pakistan” and to make them feel proud as “Pakistanis.”

The second fruit: reap is to make the youth realize their responsibility towards the country and that the youth is encouraged to launch “Social Action Projects.” The third fruit: encouraging the youth to reflect Pakistan as positive and upbeat on social media. Fourthly, harvest more awareness in them of the global challenges that our motherland is currently facing. The last fruit: provide a platform to the students to develop and polish their leadership skills.

School of Leadership is known for being pioneers of the training industry in Pakistan. They claim to provide a platform for individuals to discover and utilise their unquestionable ability to elevate their lives through conscious endeavor.

SoL helps brings about positive changes in people’s personal, professional and social lives, which favorably impacts their families, organizations, communities and society at large.
