Ravvish works to resolve conflict in Pakistan through global engagement, the development of regional histories and cultural narratives, youth empowerment and basic career advice.
Ravvish provides a platform for cultural ambassadors and teachers from across the world to conduct sessions over Skype or in person with government and private school children in Pakistan, fulfilling the broader aim of promoting tolerance, critical thinking and empathy. Sessions are also designed to provide career advice and computer literacy.
