Possibilities Pakistan, a project founded by three Wesleyan students, is requesting your vote in order to win $50,000 at the Dell Social Innovation Awards. Possibilities Pakistan was founded by Wesleyan students Ali Chaudhry’12, Kenny Feder’12 and Kumail Akbar’12 in April 2009.
Possibilities Pakistan (www.possibilitiespakistan.org) is a non-profit organization, the first of its kind, that extends free college counseling to all Pakistani students who aspire to attend international universities. Our goal is to guide Pakistani students through the complicated application process so that they may ultimately find and be accepted to suitable top-notch foreign universities. Our project includes a free online guidance service and a one-hundred-and-fifty page e-magazine that lays bare the details of applying to college. The guidance service is run by a network of over 200 Pakistani and American students currently studying at renowned universities all over the world. When current Pakistani high school students have questions about applying to college, they simply e-mail our organization, and their queries are forwarded to appropriate members of our team who have faced similar problems before. Our magazine is a detailed walk-through of the college application process, with articles explaining the details of everything you need to know about getting into a foreign university. To date we have guided over 200 students and over 2500 students have viewed our magazine. You can help us grow further, by voting for us at:
