Mountain Wilderness International (MWI) would organize first training course for the mountaineering instructors during the summer of 2013.
In this regard, the local leaders of the AKRSP (Agha Khan organization) and Qamar Zaman, Federal Secretary of the Ministry of Education and Training, assured their full support to the initiative, acknowledging its educational, professional and sustainable significance, said Prof. Carlo Alberto Pinelli, Chief of the Asian Desk (MWI).
He said that, after many years of absence, the MWI had come back to Pakistan to offer, once more, to their Pakistani friends their technical expertise and their philosophical vision of the relationship between civilized man and the mountains. “We were here to take up again a common and shared path based on a positive exchange of ideas and experiences. In truth it is not quite correct to say that we have been absent: Pakistan is the only Asian Nation where a Chapter of Mountain Wilderness has been operating efficiently for years.”
