Samsung sets up more smart classes in SOS Villages.
Samsung Electronics, the global technology leader, has collaborated with SOS Children's Villages for the construction of smart classes in nine major cities of Pakistan to uplift the standard of education in the under-privileged communities. The Samsung smart class at SOS Hermann Gmeiner School has been established in the SOS Village at Ferozepur road, Lahore.
SOS Children's Villages have been selected to manage these smart-classes at strategic locations, due to their high credibility and performance in providing superior quality education, accommodation and a healthy environment to nurture the inherent talents among the deprived segments, especially the orphans.
Samsung has so far developed smart classes at SOS villages of GT Road Rawalpindi, Sector H-11 Islamabad, Malir Halt Karachi, Gattwala Faisalabad, Industrial Estate Multan, Khambaranwala Sialkot, Faisalabad Road Sargodha, Dhodial Mansehra and Ferozepur Road Lahore. Samsung Pakistan has invested millions of rupees for establishment of smart classes and upgrading of these school premises.
The upgraded institutions are then operated by the SOS Village with qualified teachers in accordance with high academic standards to achieve the defined objectives, while ensuring complete transparency. Hence, free education is being provided to thousands of deserving and under-privileged students.
Managing Director of Samsung Pakistan, YJ Kim, stated: "Being a socially-responsible enterprise - Samsung pursues a generous human development programme. This smart class initiative is designed to foster modern education in under-developed regions, by supporting the endeavours of prolific organisations like the SOS Villages. Samsung is making this vital social effort to accelerate social, educational and economic progress in the country".
SOS Children's Village is a global organisation that focuses on family-based, long-term care of the less fortunate children to give them a chance for a better tomorrow so they can contribute towards nation-building. This way, Samsung is sharing its success with the communities.
