When any organization sets foot in a country, it becomes its duty to act as an upstanding member of the society and bring value to it. Telenor Pakistan has always taken up this part of its duties with ambition and fervor. We strive to improve societies and keep coming up with projects to empower them.
One such project, dear to the heart of many Telenor employees and customers, is Telenor I-Champ. Initiated in 2014, to familiarize and educate underprivileged children from far flung areas with basic internet to improve their lives and to educate them, I-Champ continued to achieve so much more than was initially anticipated.
