Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) believes that investing in education is vital to Pakistan's prosperity.
Improving education outcomes is of utmost importance and requires action from all quarters including corporations.
PTCL's ambition for corporate social responsibility (CSR) is targeted at education, youth development, health, inclusion, disaster response and environment.
The company's vision for value creation in Pakistan's education is bridging the skill gap between corporate and academic sector, collaboration with institutions and creating learning opportunities.
"Owing to scarcity of education in Pakistan, education needs to be a top agenda in the CSR plan of every company. PTCL continues to take initiatives to close the gap between educational institutions and the industry. This is a great event for CSR heads to learn about innovations that have the potential to significantly improve the quality of education in Pakistan." said PTCL CHRO Syed Mazhar Hussain.
He was speaking at the first-of-its-kind CSR Education Innovation Forum in Islamabad.
