Chinese telecom giant Huawei has contributed digital equipment and other devices necessary to develop a smart classroom for unprivileged children through Obhizatrik Foundation Monday.
To pull off this programme, Huawei has teamed up with Obhizatrik Foundation, an organisation working towards overcoming socio-economic challenges. Under this collaboration, Huawei has donated various items such as Huawei tabs, laptop, router; internet subscription for one year, students' dress, bags, stationeries, masks, and oxygen cylinders to Obhizatrik School.
The items were handed over to Ahmed Imtiaz Jami, the founder and president of Obhizatrik Foundation, at a ceremony held at Obhizatrik School today.
"Our recent initiative 'In Bangladesh, For Bangladesh – We are Here,' has been mapped out to reach those deprived kids. We believe, even if it is a small initiative, the continued effort will make a difference, and several small streams will converge into a vast ocean finally," Zhang Zhengjun, CEO of Huawei Technologies Bangladesh, said at the event.
"Obhizatrik Foundation has been working with an unprivileged section of people for a long time. But during the pandemic, we were helpless because of the lack of resources and digital means necessary for online education. We also needed safety materials such as masks and oxygen cylinders to fight the pandemic. Huawei has stepped forward to help the unprivileged children, to close the digital gap and safeguard their health," said Jami.
