Careem has partnered with Coded Minds, a global iSTEAM leadership, education, and technology company to provide affordable online courses for Captains’ children.
Through this partnership, Captains will be offered special discounted vocational training courses such as Computer Programming, App Development, and Social Media and Digital Marketing at affordable prices. Similarly, the children of Captains will also be offered a course comprising five key subjects namely English, Math, Science, Technology, and Urdu.
Commenting on the development, Zeeshan Hasib Baig, Chief Executive Officer, and Country General Manager, Careem Pakistan, stated: “Captains are at the heart of what we do and a priority area for us since we started services; to put it simply they are a part of the Careem family. This partnership will undoubtedly help our deserving Captains in getting a quality education for themselves as well as their children at affordable rates. We hope the Captains will make the most of this partnership as it will pave the way for more opportunities for them.”
Omar Farooqui, President & Founder, Coded Minds, Global said, “We are very proud to partner with Careem to bring about high-quality 21st-century education to their Captains and their children as well. We are committed to reimagining education not just pedagogically but also through mass availability which has not been possible for every child and adult on this planet. This is another milestone for us as we continue to make education a right, not a privilege.”
Careem has been at the forefront of initiatives designed to improve the quality of lives for Captains. Having recently become a Super App, Careem offers multiple opportunities as it expands its services from the mobility of people to the mobility of things and money.
