Telenor Pakistan, as part of its Karo Mumkin initiative, is helping provide 10,000 paper notebooks to school children belonging to low income 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.
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.
