An disadvantaged school in Karachi now has a computer lab thanks to a collaboration between Zong 4G and HANDS, one of the best non-profits in Pakistan.
The alliance will provide thousands of kids with digital education with the goal of bridging the digital divide in society and providing high-quality education to Karachi’s underprivileged strata of society.
Students couldn’t learn and use practical computer skills because the school lacked the necessary technical infrastructure. Young students and their teachers will be able to access digital education through the digital lab that Zong has set up and keep up with the pace of the global education system.
“We have a responsibility to prepare younger generations- the future leaders of Digital Pakistan, therefore, we are leveraging our connectivity to create opportunities for all. Our collaboration with HANDS is a testament towards our aim of creating an inclusive Digital Pakistan,” said the spokesperson of Zong 4G.
HANDS strives to enhance health, build infrastructure, advance education, combat poverty, and establish social institutions that will empower local communities. There are 13 volunteer board members, 11,230 employees, and thousands of community volunteers from more than 6,300 partner groups working for the organization.
Commenting on the partnership, Arsalan Ashraf from HANDS shared, “We express our gratitude to the Zong team for their support to these future changemakers of the country. This digital lab will help these children to learn the required skills and gain confidence to thrive in a digital society.”
Zong 4G’s social responsibility efforts are creating opportunities and assisting in addressing social needs, empowering marginalized groups, and fostering an egalitarian society by building a successful and inclusive digital education ecosystem.
