Zong 4G, Pakistan’s Leading Telecommunication Company has partnered with the Health and Nutrition Development Society (HANDS) to set up a revolutionary Digital Lab at the FAS School in Noor Muhammad Goth near Karachi.
As a part of Zong 4G’s Sustainability Program, this partnership aims to provide students in marginalized areas with top-notch technological systems to empower their digital skills and provide access to the digital world. The school presently serves 120 students and is consistently broadening its scope to guarantee the provision of high-quality education for more students.
