The harsh weather conditions in the northern areas of Pakistan can often limit the number of leisurely activities that children can engage in during their free time.
The Aga Khan Youth and Sports Board in Hunza is organizing a fun-filled ice skating and ice hockey event on January 30th in the Passu village of Gojal Valley for the second year in a row.
The board launched the Sports Fellowship program in 2015. It is a great initiative in attempts to improve sports skills of the youth in the region.
Different age groups are participating in the ice-skating and hockey event that is held at the 57 km long Batura glacier on the frozen Borith Lake in Hunza Gojal and it’s amazing!
Teenagers are seen practicing ice-hockey for the event which is scheduled for January 30th.
People had nothing but good things to say about the event
Who knows what this event will motivate the children to do
Nonetheless, it brought happiness to everyone
Check out this video of the teenagers practicing for the event
This is definitely a great initiative, and we hope the event is a success!
