A 10-member delegation of young Pakistani female students arrived in the United States this week under the Summer Sister Program, which is funded by the US Embassy in Pakistan in collaboration with various American Universities including George Washington University, American University, Duke University, Georgetown University, John Hopkins University etc. Since 2013, the Summer Sisters Program has tripled in size and many Pakistani students have benefitted.

Under the Summer Sisters Program, the US Pakistan Women’s Council helps lower-to-middle income Pakistani High School Girls explore new education & career options in pre-college programs at top US Colleges & Universities.

The students met Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States, Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry at the Embassy on July 6. Ambassador Chaudhry told the visiting students that Pakistan and U.S. had enjoyed historic relations spanning over seven decades and Pakistan is deeply interested in further strengthening the relations. The Student Exchange Programs promote people-to-people contact and act as a bridge in further cementing bilateral relations, he added.

While appreciating the confidence and conviction of the young Pakistani students, Ambassador Chaudhry remarked that Pakistani women are very intelligent, committed & passionate about their country. He urged the young students to work hard and give their share in connecting Pakistan with the rest of the world by promoting positive image of the country.
