Mobilink installs six state-of-the-art ICT labs at schools
LAHORE: Mobilink has successfully completed its nationwide ‘ICT Enhancement Programme’ in partnership with Pakistan Center for Philanthropy (PCP). Under the program, Mobilink has set up six state of the art ICT labs in its partner schools to ensure youth from marginalized communities are equipped to thrive in the fast evolving digital economy.
This initiative, launched five months ago, saw Mobilink and PCP join hands to identify schools in need of ICT labs, with PCP being made responsible for ensuring that the recipients are serving marginalized social classes. PCP’s involvement also made the process transparent and impartial. The program will now reach out to almost 3500 deserving students of primary and secondary schools operating in rural and peri-urban areas every six month.
The schools who have received these ICT labs are, Nasra School – Karachi, Govt. Girls High School – Bagh AJK, Zunaira Mallah School – Hyderabad, Read Foundation Higher Secondary School – Gilgit, Government Girls High School – Quetta, and HDF Model School – Mardan. Omar Manzur, Head of Corporate Communications – Mobilink, said the telco continues to ensure all objectives set under its ‘Make Your Mark’ initiative are carried forth on a continuous basis with proper planning.
