Founded on their belief that most of the problems currently faced by their country is education, the NED Chapter recently initiated a new project.
Their faculty sponsor, Engr. Javed Haneef, came up with a welfare initiative through which children from under-privileged families who cannot afford education will be admitted to schools and their entire educational expenses (including tuition fees, uniforms, books, etc) will be funded by the Chapter. Funds will be generated through donations made by the industry, as well as individuals such as students and faculty.
The project was inaugurated by admitting two children, Hassan Riaz and Ali Riaz, to a school named Al-Hunain Academy. The children have recently lost their father in an accident and their mother, who works as a housemaid, cannot afford their education. One child was admitted to a nursery and the other in KG1 (kindergarten).
Apart from the objective of contributing to the society, this project also aims to make chapter members realize their social responsibility. The project is still in its initial phases and continuous efforts are required to sustain and grow it. The chapter, under the guidance of the faculty sponsor, is committed and devoted to expand this project so that more and more students can benefit.
Congratulations on all your hard work NED Chapter – you really have made a difference!
