This Ramadan Vodafone brings joy to underprivileged children
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 27: As a Ramadan offer, Vodafone India, is taking initiatives to make a difference to the lives of under-privileged children.
In less than three weeks of the holy month, Vodafone has collected over INR 2.79 lakh to fund the basic education of less privileged children.
The fund has been generated by setting aside 1 paisa per call and Rs 10 per for every new activation in Kashmir province, the company in a statement said.
This initiative is a part of Vodafone’s larger commitment towards contributing positively towards the society, it said.
“It is Vodafone’s way of participating in the spirit of the holy month and involving the entire community in the Kashmir Valley in efforts directed towards the education of children who are otherwise deprived of this opportunity,” it said.
Asit Shekhar, Business Head, Punjab, HP and J&K, Vodafone India, said, “As a value based organisation, we at Vodafone believe in making a meaningful contribution towards the society. Our constant endeavour is to make a difference to our workplace, marketplace, environment and community. Given our endeavour for a larger social cause, it was a humbling experience to see how little things make a huge difference to these children. The activity has instilled a commitment within us to conduct such programmes more often.”
The mobile service provider has tied up with the Sakhawat Centre run by the Iqbal Memorial Trust, an NGO in Srinagar, for this larger social cause.
