    It is a great news for the people of ares in Gilgit and Hunza, it seems that it will initiate a new chapter of development in the area, what it could be said to coming at par with the advanced world of today, stepping forward from a traditional base of activities. It would be a giant leap forward for the people of Hunza, Gilgit and Baltistan.

    We are highly thankfull to Aga Khan Foundation and Microsoft for this wonderful initiative.
