QCT network of young leaders launches a country chapter in Pakistan

QCT celebrated the official launch of QCT Network’s Pakistan Chapter on March 15th, 2023, during the Commonwealth Week, with a special event held at COLABS, Lahore. The event aimed to highlight and celebrate exceptional leaders who are making a difference in their communities through their organisations, as well as introduce QCT young leaders who are making a positive impact in Pakistan.

The launch event was attended by Andrew Dalgleish, the Acting British High Commissioner as a Chief Guest, who praised QCT for its efforts in supporting young people across the Commonwealth. He also highlighted the importance of collaboration and partnership in achieving meaningful change between QCT and the British High Commission Pakistan.

“QCT Network members are helping to transform their communities across the Commonwealth. The launch of this country chapter in Pakistan is an excellent reminder of the change that young people can make for the benefit of society, and the need for us all to support them.”

Chris Kelly, Chief Executive of QCT

“I am delighted to be here in Pakistan for the launch of one of the first QCT Network Country Chapters. I hope it provides many opportunities for young leaders to collaborate and further QCT’s vision of communities transformed by young leaders.”

Helen Baxter, Head of Operations and Finance, speaking at the event

“QCT is proud to launch its Pakistan Chapter, and we are excited to work with exceptional leaders who are committed to making a positive impact in their communities. We believe that by collaborating with these leaders, we can build a brighter future for young people in Pakistan and across the Commonwealth via collaborations and increased engagements.”

QCT also used the occasion to introduce its Co-Chair, Syed Kashf Ahmed, an exceptional young leader, and also introduced 12 others tremendous QCT young leaders from Pakistan, who shared their stories of how they are making a difference in their communities. 

The launch of the QCT Pakistan Chapter comes at a time when there is a growing need to support young people in Pakistan, who face numerous challenges, including poverty, lack of education, and limited access to opportunities. By working with exceptional leaders who are making a positive impact in their communities, the QCT hopes to empower young people to realise their potential and make a difference in their own lives and the lives of those around them.
