Xgrid & Chal Foundation: Bridging the Empathy Gap!
It is a moment of great pride for Xgrid that we took another step in leveling up our CSR efforts and have tied the bond of partnership with Chal Foundation! We are delighted to announce that the MOU has been formally signed between the two partners and we’re officially headed towards collaborative efforts for a better future.
While Xgrid continues to leave its mark in the tech industry, we are also aware of our simultaneous corporate social responsibility and aim to benefit the world with our expertise. We’ve been involved in multiple CSR initiatives over the past few years and our spirit to pay back to the society also got recognition at P@SHA ICT Awards 2019 where we bagged a silver award for exceptional CSR efforts among 350+ companies competing. The thirst to play our part in uplifting our society has driven us towards achieving another milestone and that’s exactly the common goal for which Xgrid has joined hands with Chal Foundation!
Having treated 30,000+ patients so far, Chal Foundation is leading the way in serving physically challenged people of Pakistan by providing free care, support, and assistive devices to the people with physical disabilities. It has been running its philanthropic efforts for the past 10 years with 10 rehab centers nationwide. Along with physical rehabilitation, Chal Foundation also focuses on training and skill enhancement to integrate those who are physically challenged back into the mainstream. Xgrid has teamed up with Chal Foundation to work towards the common objective of imparting technical knowledge and equipping the physically impaired with professional knowledge and skills to uplift their quality of life.
Having a history of delivering a wide range of intelligent solutions, Xgrid is globally known for driving technical innovation and is rich in technical expertise in the domains we operate in. To make use of this incredible potential that Xgrid holds, we aim to extend a helping hand to the patients of Chal Foundation – a community for whom technical skills and knowledge can be a life-changer. Even after the loss of their limbs, if equipped with IT skills, people with physical disabilities can emerge as self-sufficient individuals who live a normal life, earn for their households and contribute towards the growth of our economy.
Under the banner of this partnership, we have agreed to provide training sessions and IT workshops to the patients and also conducted an introductory meet and greet session at their clinical facility in the middle of October. This was attended by patients from Waziristan, Balakot, Interior Punjab, and remote villages of Balochistan, who we encouraged to leave behind their limitations and make their mark in the wider world!
They shared their dreams of launching their own YouTube channels and startups and Xgrid is determined to design customized training sessions to translate their dreams into reality. These trainings will cover MS Office suite, professional skill development, report writing, sales and marketing techniques, best utilization of digital platforms to create awareness and much more. We also look forward to conducting frequent recreational activities and fundraisers in the near future and plan to help Chal Foundation scale up its efforts by boosting their presence through digital marketing and bringing these inspiring stories to the limelight.
This collaborative effort has provided team Xgrid with a golden opportunity for knowledge sharing which has led to an increase in satisfaction levels and boosted the morale of our workforce. Through this initiative, we aim to empower and educate those in need and intend to steer our country towards a digitized future unhampered by physical limitations!
