Rabtt, which means ‘connection’ in Urdu, is a voluntary youth organization that aims to promote independent and critical thinking. Rabtt brings together students and mentors from different classes of society through educational camps, fostering an environment free from judgement and control, introducing new fields of knowledge and broadening the scope of future possibilities for students.

The students were engaged in Mathematics, Physics, English, Computers, Public Speaking, Art, Dramatics, World History and Sports. Students and teachers interacted with renowned guest lecturers, such as Dr. Arfa Syeda and Omair Rana. The work was featured in an article in the Pakistan Express Tribune.
