Telenor Pakistan employees volunteer at SOS Village

Volunteers from Telenor Pakistan, visited SOS Village Islamabad to spend some time with the children residing in the village and contribute towards their educational journey. The visit was part of their Telenor Ke Saath, Employee Volunteer Program through which Telenor volunteers reaffirm their commitment to social responsibility.

With donations from across the organisation, the volunteers procured and donated school bags, each packed with essential school supplies, to be distributed among the children. The engagement activities as part of the visit were designed to foster creativity, learning, and environmental awareness among the children. The children participated in a workshop on environment in which they learned about important topics like climate change, the impact of recycling and forestation, and enjoyed storytelling sessions and engaged in creative activities such as coloring and reading. Additionally, a plantation drive was organised, with each group of children receiving plant pots and seeds to nurture a sense of responsibility towards nature.

“After our visit, I was deeply moved by the joy on the children’s faces,” shared Areej Khan, Chief People Officer at Telenor Pakistan. “At Telenor Pakistan, we’re all about making a difference beyond our business goals. Our engagement with the residents of SOS Village Islamabad perfectly exemplifies this spirit. By participating in volunteering initiatives like this, we hope to empower communities and instil a culture of compassion and generosity. I’m truly proud of our volunteers for their commitment to improving lives.”

The visit concluded with a tour of the SOS village, allowing volunteers to witness the nurturing environment provided to the children by the SOS administration.
