STAFF REPORT LHR: Wateen Telecom has announced to partner with the International Student Identity Card (ISIC) Association in order to work together to support students in Pakistan by signing an MoU with the Association.
Under the MoU Wateen will offer 20 per cent discount every month on all WiMAX line rent to any person with a valid ISIC card for a year. The ISIC is a global standards body that issues identity cards to students from recognised educational institutes.
The ISIC is the only globally recognized student identity card, which is exclusively endorsed by UNESCO. The ISIC is selected and used by over 4.5 million students globally so that they can avail student facilities in other cities and countries, such as libraries.
“Wateen’s partnership with the ISIC is part of our continuing commitment to building the future educational and information network necessary for a knowledge based economy, the kind of economy that will drive Pakistan in terms of development and economic growth,” Wateen’s CEO Naeem Zamindar said this while commenting on the MoU signing.
He said that our partnership with ISIC is another step towards realizing Wateen’s vision of enabling every man, woman and child in Pakistan through leading edge technology.
