On the 28th of November, 70 young students belonging to the grades of 8 and 9 from one of the schools of The Citizen Foundation visited the office of Kaymu with their mentors to learn more about the workings in one of the busiest places in Pakistan. The objective of this exercise was to give them the taste of white collar professions and knowledge regarding multiple career options that they can pursue. Moreover, a large amount of emphasis was provided on the educational levels needed to achieve a post in such an environment.
During the course of their trip, a number of things were discussed in detail. A brief description was provided on each department in the organization along with the working style that takes place in them.
