Roshni Helpline flew 2000 kites in Mehmoodabad, in an effort to create awareness about the missing children in Karachi.
The idea behind Kites of Hope was to use a cultural icon of Pakistani spring - the kite, and turn it into a social vehicle to reach people in the high impact areas of Karachi and spread Roshni Helpline number. During the event, the kites that break off and drift away helped to spread the details of the missing children in hard-to-reach corners of Karachi. As an innovative way to locate missing children, through this event we disseminate the information pertaining to missing children in a manner that reaches the grass-root level and thereby helps reunite parents with their children.
President Roshni Helpline Mr. Muhammad Ali briefing media on main objectives of this campaign and outcomes.
Roshni Helpline conducted its second Kites of Hope event to raise awareness about the issue of missing children. We printed and flew over 2,000 kites with faces of children who have gone missing in Karachi. The event was attended by members of the Pavilion End Club, families of the missing children and the media. It was a great success with educational skits, stalls, kite flying and a musical performance by Sajid Abbas from Pakistan Idol!
