Karachi – March 03, 2017: K-Electric has partnered with Patel Education Foundation School (PEFS) located in Saeedabad, Baldia Town to provide desktop computers to the school. The newly established computer lab was inaugurated in the presence of KE representatives and school management today.
According to KE spokesperson, “Provision of computers for educational purpose besides enhancing students’ access to information also helps them prepare for modern-day challenges and subsequently bridging the digital divide in our society. KE will continue to make social investments in line with its commitment of empowering the society.”
According to the principal of PEFS, “For over a decade, we have been providing quality education free of cost in Baldia Town and through the partnership with K-Electric around 200 students will be able to use computers for the first time at the school. We are hopeful that this generous support will help develop students’ computer knowledge which serves the foundations of the Digital Age.”
