Telenor Helps provide Notebooks to school Children belonging to Poor Families
The notebooks are made from recycled waste paper by Sabz, an NGO founded by Fariha Ambreen, who had won Telenor’s Karo Mumkin campaign.
The two winning ideas out of 25,000 total ideas submitted to Karo Mumkin were funded by Telenor Pakistan with Rs. 2 million for each project.
Fariha Ambreen had won for her idea of ‘Recycling Paper to Provide Notebooks to Schools for Under Privileged Children’ while Mr. Abdul Haq Mohiuddin’s idea of ‘Donating Rs. 100 from your Monthly Salary to Make Education Possible for Street Children’ had won the competition.
Fariha has now reportedly turned her idea into a reality by working closely with Telenor Pakistan on the recycled paper notebooks project.
