Since inception Ufone has had a major focus on child health care and education. Taking a step forward to promote education amongst the underprivileged, Ufone Volunteers are actively taking part in “The Citizens Foundation’s (TCF) Career Counseling programme.
TCF’s ‘Career Counseling Program’ is designed for TCF students who were appearing for the Matriculation examinations this year. With the use of a pre-designed personality test and other self-appraisal exercises, counselors helped discover and highlight the aptitude of the concerned young adult. Through this process of derivation, the aim of the counselor is to increase each individual’s self-awareness and map future career opportunities for them. This process will help enable the young adult to become focused and work towards realistic and achievable goals.
In continuation of Ufone’s collaboration with TCF, TCF organized workshops in Lahore and Karachi for Ufone volunteers to prepare the volunteers to act as mentors and instill in them the knowledge and expertise to carry out counseling activities as per the objective of the programme.
