I believe that one of the core principles to create a better, vibrant, democratic and a more prosperous Pakistan is a 4-year college educated Pakistan with competitive skill sets which will also ensure economic survival and progress in an increasingly globally intertwined landscape. This belief has become firmer in the last nine years since I moved back to Pakistan, after having lived in the US for 13 years, and while going through the process of setting up multiple successful tech-enabled startups in Pakistan. Not waiting for the government or some messiah to fix this, I decided to take this initiative as a private, not-for-profit venture with the help of friends and family during my prime years.
