Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) has reconstructed two schools and a college which was completely destroyed in the 2015 earthquake that struck a major part of Kashmir and northern Pakistan.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative towards promoting education, PTCL in cooperation with the government has played a leading role in rebuilding key institutions across the Swat region.
These include the Government Degree College for Women and the Government Girls Model Higher Secondary School in Saidu Sharif. While the focus has been on empowering women and young girls through better education, PTCL has also provided support in the reconstruction of Government Middle School for Boys in Dakorak, Charbagh as well.
In line with its commitment to empowering the country’s youth, PTCL has further assisted in providing the latest technological hardware for setting up state of the art computer labs within these rebuilt institutions.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony at Saidu Sharif, Ozair Ahmed, GM Admin & Security PTCL said, “Today we reiterate our resolve to promote essential education at the grass-root level in areas where it is required the most. Nothing could be more significant for us than lending a hand to today’s youth, helping them become the leaders of tomorrow. We hope that through our efforts these young men and women can pave the way towards a prosperous future not only for their region but the entire country as a whole.”
