In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).Aneeq Cheema, young and energetic, is a 2010 graduate from LUMS, with majors in Economics and Political Science. He was the president of LUMS Entrepreneurial Society, responsible for steering nation-wide events such as the YLES. He is who gets very excited by the word 'social', by the possibilities that social change can open up for the welfare of the country, and places a great deal of hope in the ability of the youth. Saddened at the same time by the limited opportunity the present education system provides to the youth to exercise their intellectual faculties, he and Imran Sarwar co-founded the NGO Rabtt. Aneeq combines his vision with astute practicality and a meticulous, step-by-step development of ideas into reality.At TEDxFCCollege, Aneeq talks about his venture - Rabtt. Taking from his experience at the Seeds of Peace conflict resolution camp in USA, Rabtt holds camps at government and underprivileged schools and teaches subjects like History, Philosophy, Math, English, Art, Drama and Public Speaking to the children. The children are taught by volunteer instructors from various universities and schools, and aims to provide current and new information to the children without indoctrinating them; by allowing them instead to think for themselves and formulate their own opinions. Simultaneously, Rabtt provides and promotes ground for volunteering opportunities for students and young professionals from several institutions; providing opportunity to polish their own skills, and imparting them to the children as well.
