Sense of Community - Habib University

Sense of Community

Project Wujood:

“Wujood” is a student led initiative with the purpose to establish an Adult Literacy Program for the support staff of Habib University. In our efforts to bridge the social gap within the community, we want to engage with the staff in a manner that is sustainable, efficient and beneficial to the community as a whole. The syllabus is structured to cater to the needs to each individual. Furthermore, it equips the staff members with more than just classroom lecture and development of emotional quotient that includes character development, personal growth and critical thinking.

Project Kawish:

Kawish is a program for the education of less-privileged children in Pakistan. The program helps students to prepare for university admission tests and interviews, so that their financial constraint (and the resulting inability to join high-pricing centers) is not a barrier in opening up paths for higher education. Kawish is collaborated with The Citizens Foundation and offers summer internships to Habib University students. You would not want to miss this in-house opportunity of singer the community.

Blood Drives:

Blood Drives have become a regular activity for the HU Community, organized every semester. In collaboration with various hospitals and institutes. Some of the collaborations include the Indus Hospital, Shaukat Khanum, and Kashif Iqbal Thalassemia Care Centre. Such initiatives inculcate a sense of selflessness and compassion for others and help us become better humans.

PINKTOBER – Breast Cancer Awareness:

October is the breast-cancer awareness month and celebrated as “Pinktober” at Habib every year.
