EdJAM Pakistan Children’s Series: The Forgotten Heroes of Pakistan (English)

The EdJAM Children's Series is a collection of illustrated books for children designed by undergraduate students and illustrators to highlight historical and contemporary narratives that are missing from textbooks in Pakistan.

The story highlights the lives and struggles of Pakistan’s forgotten heroes, S.P. Singha, Zafarullah Khan, and Jogendra Nath Mandal.

“As an artist interested in storytelling, I have always found social studies in Pakistan to be taught through a narrow lens, omitting and erasing so many narratives which make our society. Being a part of this series, I focused on ways through which children can be taught a more comprehensive version of history with an engaging approach, where the illustrations aid and add to the story rather than being an afterthought.”  Rida Zaidi
