The Citizens Archive of Pakistan [CAP], in collaboration with Routes2Roots, an Indian non-profit organisation working for peace and dialogue between Pakistan and India, introduced “Exchange for Change”, an interactive exchange between 2400 school children of Pakistan and India. The idea is to open avenues for children within Pakistan and India for dialogue and understanding of a shared history, culture and lives. During the 12-month life of this project, a sustained exchange of written, visual and oral histories will take place between 2400 school children, between the ages 10 and 14, from 10 schools across Pakistan and India. People in attendance at the event included Sherry Rehman, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Amean J and Amber Rauf. - Photos by Kohi Marri.
