Student exchange project launched to build Indo-Pak peace bridges
Karachi: Citizens Archive of Pakistan (CAP) and Routes2Roots from India have joined hands to launch a four-phase project - "Exchange for Change" - to initiate cultural exchanges between school students from Pakistan and India.

This was announced by Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, president CAP, at a press conference held at a local hotel on Monday.

"It was after painstaking planning that we have finally been able to put this idea together along with Routes2Roots, so that children from both side of border get to learn about each other," Chinoy said, adding, "we have had too much of hatred and it is time to scale down the jingoistic rhetoric between the two countries and promote peaceful exchange of dialogue and build bridges."

Introducing the project, he informed the audience that "Exchange for Change" is a year-long project, beginning in January 2011, in which 2,400 school students between the ages of 10 and 14 would participate. Ten schools representing different social strata were chosen from Karachi, Lahore, New Delhi and Mumbai to participate in this project, which will be conducted in four phases.

Outlining further plans by CAP and Routes2Roots, Chinoy announced the two organisations would be updating their progress on the website as well as holding exhibitions in other cities in Pakistan and India. She added that this would be the first of many projects over the course of next three years as "we plan to move ahead from school students to college students".

Former information minister Sherry Rehman also spoke at the event as she praised the initiative taken by CAP. "I have always been impressed by their work but the Exchange for Change project is extremely important as it focuses on the new generation to try and inculcate in them message of love and peace instead of living off the memories of hatred," said Rehman.

She expressed her optimism about the success of the project, and said it had the potential to bring reforms in both countries. "It has been tough to keep dialogue going on between Pakistan and India but both of them must continue talking as it can keep away the threat of war and conflicts. We must ensure people-to-people interaction to share ideas, Samosay and Masala Dossa."
