TEDxMargalla - Nofal Khan - Social Education with Comic Characters

Nofal Khan, based in Karachi, is an under-grad from Institute of Business Management. An aspiring entrepreneur with the conviction to give back something to the society has, with his team, founded a social enterprise aimed towards educating the under-privileged and bringing harmony to the ever-growing restless society of ours. Being a patriotic person, he thinks this is the time the society should start helping itself to prosper. The social enterprise Moajza has a flagship venture titled Pappu. Pappu is a mascot character who symbolizes the life of many kids belonging to the lower working class families. It is a representation of every child who isn't getting proper education. The team produces merchandise depicting Pappu's life and the profits all go to educate numerous Pappu out there. So that instead of being a liability, they should be a gain to the society. At present the directionless path that they are on, would hinder them in realizing their potential to the maximum, let alone making them responsible citizens. The profits are also put to use to support schools. Most recently, Pappu has teamed up with students from Oxford and LSE to develop a program to encourage cognitive thinking among the secondary school students in slum schools.
