Samsung Helps SOS Village With ICT

We like to highlight all companies when they engage in corporate social responsibility activities which benefit common people. SOS Village is one of the major initiatives for children in Pakistan and we are glad to report that Samsung helped them out with computers and technology. Here’s the info, adapted from the press statement issued by Samsung.

Samsung Electronics has  renovated the computer facilities in the SOS Children’s Village school at Dodhial in Hazara Division.

Samsung has modernized this previously outdated facility by building two computer labs, each carrying 15 latest computers along with modern facilities and a pleasant ambience, thus today, thousands of children are able to get modern education here. Samsung continues to make extensive deliberations for enhancing the level of education in the remote areas, as it follows an elaborate CSR philosophy, which entails consistent contributions towards social uplift, in every society it operates.

The Public Relations Manager of Samsung Electronics Pakistan, Ms. Rabiya Siddiqui said, “It is a pleasure to see these talented children get state-of-the-Art Computer education. As part of Samsung’s traditional social-development program, we aim to foster modern education in underdeveloped regions, by providing impetus to the endeavours of sincere organizations like SOS Villages”.

She further added, Samsung firmly believes that it is the right of every child to get quality education. Thus by making this social effort, we have enabled the children of Dodhial village, and a large number of students from its surrounding areas to get quality education at very nominal fees. Samsung has thus contributed towards the escalation of the social, educational and financial progress of the whole region”.

SOS Children’s Villages is an NGO, active in the field of children’s rights, needs and concerns across 132 countries. Founded in 1949, it has also won the world-renowned “Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize” for extraordinary contributions towards alleviating human suffering. It is one of the biggest NGOs working in Pakistan.

This particular SOS village at Dodhial was founded in 1982. Samsung chose to uplift this facility because, despite an extremely remote location, this facility provides its students with equal-rights, quality education and superior training, from Pre-school through schooling & vocational training. As a result its students exude elevated self-respect and mannerisms.
