“All children dream of what they will be and it changes as often as their fancies do; the sad reality is that most of them

[in the slum area I targeted] won’t even finish attending primary school. Life and reality will overpower them and these dreams will be buried deep in some intangible place …. The majority of children dreamed of being teachers and doctors, one wanted to be a pilot and a 5-year-old girl who loves make-up and aspires to be a make-up artist someday.” -Alizeh Khaleeli, Islamabad, Capital Territory, Pakistan
