Mein Hero/I Am A Hero is AzCorp’s latest initiative for the youths of Pakistan. Combining interactive class-based sessions with grass-roots local ‘superheroes’ AzCorp is furthering its vision of Team Muhafiz with the help of students who develop a ‘hero’ storyline – combining narrative, values, problem-solving and story-writing skills – while understanding local-level issues and the importance of individual action.
Selected stories will be converted into comic books and adapted as theatre plays as well as for broadcast via radio.
Through this initiative, AzCorp will celebrate heroes from all parts of Pakistan, who already represent the spirit of selflessness, compassion and justice for all, irrespective of race, religion, creed, ethnicity or colour. This amazing journey will also be chronicled in a short documentary.
Pilot activities with schools in Lyari, Shireen Jinnah Colony and Malir started in May 2016.
