Higher education is incredibly important for children hoping to enter the working world. But in Pakistan, not all universities provide the ability to fill out online applications. This makes the university application process incredibly difficult for aspiring students. These young adults have to travel miles across Pakistan just to receive forms from universities and because of the travel some are forced to forget the process entirely. The result? Confinement of education and limited economic opportunities for their bright futures.
‘Rahnumai’ wishes to close the gap between education and social or geographical barriers. Their online portal allows students from all over the country to fill out university applications electronically. These forms are then carried through the organization and sent to the relative universities. Rahnumai also offers workshops and classes in regions where access to the internet is limited; teaching them how to navigate the portal and essentially, bringing them that much closer to university.
This online hub also acts as a profiling system with information on over 100 universities in Pakistan. The website offers the ability to select universities based on degree, provides fees or scholarship information and more. Making the university research process that much easier for students.
Rahnumai hopes to increase educational opportunities for students in even the remotest areas of Pakistan, deconstructing the barriers that block such children from achieving a great education.
