Beyond Borders was all about making a difference. It was what united us and gave us a purpose to define what the youth of Pakistan could do to bring about a change. It worked successfully under British Council from 2004 - 2006, but somehow it dispersed after that. Now we are aiming to revive it and show that independently we can and we will make a difference through Beyond Borders. The BB Pakistan team orginally consisted of teams from Lahore, Islamabad, Karachi, Quetta and Peshawar.

Beyond Borders as an international organization comprises of member teams in Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. So lets say bismillah to reviving the spirit of BB Pakistan once again :)

'FOR Arooj Zahid of Alta Vista College, Islamabad attending the ‘Better understanding beyond borders’ workshop was a life-changing experience.“There are certain times and events in your life that change you as a person,” she said adding, “For me this workshop was one such event. The workshop has changed me and made me realise that I have many qualities which I might never have discovered.”Beyond Borders is a learning and networking project for young people from four countries Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and the UK. The project aims to create an atmosphere for people to share their experiences and contribute towards an understanding of active citizenship (i.e. awareness of rights and responsibilities along with developing interpersonal skills).
