Major Events – Non Formal Education



Caritas Pakistan provides students and young leaders with the opportunity to obtain a unique and in-depth perspective on the realities facing in Pakistan by engaging in dialogue, cultural exchange, formation of children’s peace clubs and create awareness about peace building through trainings, sports, theatre and exposure visits.
