As you all know our city walls are filled with political wall chalking but there is a dire need for a cleaner and better Karachi, and one of the ways to eradicate wall chalking is through wall art, highlighting positive imagery of Pakistan by depiction of Pakistan’s rich culture, festivals, and national monuments. In 2016, under the guidance of Commissioner Karachi, Mr. Ejaz Ahmed Khan, and his esteemed team of Commissioner Karachi Division, EFU Life initiated ‘Meri Shaan, Mera Pakistan’, a project of beautifying Pakistan through thematic wall art.

The aim of this campaign is to reclaim different spaces that have depreciated over time.  The project has already covered walls at Ayesha Manzil and National Coaching Centre.
