He added that it was an immensely proud moment for him to begin this project from the soil he was born in.

“Three years ago, when I started this company in Dubai, I had not imagined that it will sway across 14 countries in such a short time,” Farooqui said. “This happened, perhaps, because of the uniqueness of our goal to make quality education accessible and affordable to everyone.”

He said that since all humans are equal and Islam also teaches us the same so ideally there should have been a one education system for everyone in the world but the social demographics does not allow that which is why the class divide in the society was increasing.

“It is a gigantic task to train thousands of teachers in modern trends of technology but this important objective can be attained by the AJK govt through the idea of public-private partnership as proposed by Coded Minds,” Abbasi said, urging the policy makers to formulate plan that meet the 21st century needs.

He added, “I take this opportunity to invite Coded Minds to collaborate with the Department of Education at the AJK University in implementing their project in the state. The department has few foriegn qualified teachers, understands the state of education and this alliance will boost affecting the education.”
