 Foster Learning Pakistan is a leadership skills developing organisation among youth which has successfully trained over 300 students in 4 cities of Pakistan – Lahore, Faisalabad, Layyah and Toba Tek Singh. They’re just finishing up graduating their own batch of students from their leadership training program.

Careeb is an online marketplace that offers grocery shopping on its website and delivers right to your doorstep, in just 90 minutes. The startup just raised $100,000 investment and it is the very first of ID92’s startups to do so.

Did You Know That 1 Ton Of Food Waste Emits 680 Kg Of Carbon Dioxide Into The Environment?

By | IDBlog | No Comments

If you don’t understand what that means, simply put: it is really bad for our environment! Globally, 1.1 billion tons of waste, more than 40 percent of the world’s garbage, is burned in open piles, contributing to rising emissions of toxic gases.

In Pakistan, the way to dispose waste is to pile it up in an empty plot and burn the trash. This emits CO2 in the environment that causes various deadly consequences such as respiratory issues, heart disease headaches and nausea, just to name a few.

However, trashit, your compost hero, is trying to solve this problem in Pakistan. They are a startup that converts trash into premium fertilizer allowing for a better and more sustainable future for everyone. Trashit Founder, Anusha Fatima, believes in active participation of citizens in curing urban challenges such as proper waste disposal. She decided to step forward to make a change after seeing the dirty outlook of the cities in Pakistan. Trashit promotes sustainable living and aims to develop this habit in Pakistan through their work in the ecosystem.

A Girl On A Motorcycle? How Strange!

By | IDBlog | No Comments
Zenith Irfan, also known as Motorcycle Girl of Pakistan, is known for journeying across Pakistan under her initiative to live out the dream of
her late father ; to travel across Pakistan on a motorcycle. Despite the reservations she faced from society, she kept on breaking stereotypes and raced along dangerous terrains of Northern Pakistan because that’s what she wanted to do. Turning heads and facing criticism from everyone she passes on her motorcycle, we’re sure Zenith has built up a strong armor.

Some of the features of her story include, a movie called Motorcycle Girl where she is played by actress Sohai Ali Abro and a book published by Maliha Abidi called ‘Pakistan for Women’ featuring more than 50 prominent women of Pakistan and their work.

Zenith documents her journey on her social media where she interacts with her audience in candid stories about life as a young adult in Pakistan. Currently, she is planning for her next trip to continue her journey on her motorcycle.

It is no secret that people frown upon change makers and people doing extraordinary things in unique ways. But if you’re driving past those people on your high speed motorcycle, you clearly can’t hear what they’re saying!
