From 2010 to 2013, Pakistan was hit by the worst flooding in its history, directly affecting about 20 million people, mostly by destruction of property, livelihood and infrastructure, with a death toll close to 2,000. CMPak and its employees stepped up and stood by the calamity hit people. Food, ration and medicinal aid were dispatched to the affected areas in order to assist the ongoing relief activities. CMPak’s volunteers themselves distributed boxes of relief goods to aid over 4,000 affected families in the area. During these relief activities, our employees demonstrated a spirit that truly befits our values and enterprise image.
CMPak has entered into a strategic partnership with Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the development of a state-of-the-art 4G research lab at the university. The MoU has paved the way for hundreds of students of Pakistan’s top-ranked business management university to polish their academic endeavors on latest technological lines. CMPak is proud to serve and provide high speed 3G broadband services under a project with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) which caters 100,000 students nationwide. Through this, students will be provided privileged wireless access to Global Educational Resources available on HEC’s Digital Library through PERN (Pakistan Education & Research Network). The HEC Digital Library resources were currently available to students only in campuses of respective Universities, but by virtue of this project, students will be able to access the Digital Library resources across the country, anywhere, anytime. The students will also enjoy seamless Internet services through co-branded MBB dongle devices with a highly economical exclusive students’ package. In addition to the above, CMPak has actively participated in youth development initiatives such as Islamabad Model United Nations, 10th Young Leaders’ Conference and on campus activities in Isra & NUST Universities.
CMPak is engaged with the Pakistan Red Crescent Society in a comprehensive social support program across all provinces and territories of Pakistan. Under a detailed methodology, the program is aimed at greater social inclusion through aiding the welfare of the underprivileged segments of the society vis-à-vis widows, orphans, low income families and physically/mentally challenged individuals.
Under the Universal Service Fund (USF) project, CMPak has undertaken to provide cellular mobile services to the population in the yet un-served areas of Baluchistan. Bridging the digital divide, the project demonstrates our commitment to serve the local community. In areas such as Balochistan, where access to communication is limited, CMPak’s services will significantly improve the lives of those living in rural communities through access to information, provision of basic services, improvement in areas such as health and education along with ensuring increased social inclusion.
CMPak has launched its Employees’ Volunteer Program under the hood of “A New Hope” aligned with our brand philosophy of “A New Dream”. “A New Hope” is our commitment of being the change by working with partner organizations in domains that impact the lives of millions of Pakistanis. The program aims at creating a workforce of volunteers who contribute to the society through delivery towards different causes. The goal is to clock at least 2,000 hours of volunteer work annually which will be a significant contribution to the society. Core Areas of volunteer activity include.
This Independence Day, Zong 4G’s ‘New Hope’ volunteers pay homage to the greatest hero of our Independence, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, by creating a virtual tour of his birth place, Wazir Mansion, Karachi.
This virtual tour, placed at Zong 4G’s Corporate webpage, allows visitors to take a 3D tour of Quaid’s family home. The tour allows a ‘life-like’ experience of walking through the entrance and hallways that were once walked by the great leader himself. The tour allows access to Quaid’s bedroom, study and his library which has the original furniture that has been preserved in its original state. The second floor displays astounding artifacts such as Quaid’s clothing, wearables and accessories that were under his use and gives us a peek into his elegant lifestyle.
