Karachi Mubarak Festival

Dated: 10 May 2015

Venue: Frere Hall, Karachi

MAD (Music, Art & Dance) School & I’m Karachi jointly organized this festival. This was a bit different experience from the previous events we attended. It had more musical & dance performances, puppet shows; so how’d we fit in? Well it was a children’s event & all play & no study isn’t any good. But how about combining the studying with games!

There was a very positive response from the children & their parents both who especially thought that technology in education is the future.

As soon as the event kicked off the children started coming in until there were long lines of kids waiting for their turn.
