STAFF REPORT ISB: Mobilink has successfully completed its nationwide ICT Enhancement Program in partnership with Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy (PCP).
Under the initiative, 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.
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 months.
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.
“The telco continues to ensure all objectives set under its Make Your Mark initiative are carried forth on a continuous basis with proper planning,” said Omar Manzur, Head of Corporate Communications, Mobilink.
He said that with the addition of the 6 recently established labs, Mobilink has now established a total of 11 computer labs in various educational institutions across the country.
