Since gaining independence, Pakistan has been very fortunate to have socially conscious entrepreneurs in its midst. A large, diverse number of individuals and groups have placed the interest of the nation and its people above their own, and in doing so, have earned the respect and reputation that their companies carry today.
As a socially conscious company, EBM consistently supports various humanitarian causes in the areas of education, sports, healthcare and help for the less privileged.
EBM provides financial assistance and support to various community projects. In addition, EBM also offers nutritional programs to schoolchildren, literacy promotion within and outside the company, sponsorships for higher education, leadership development programs and internship facilities to food scientists and technologists.
At the onset of Eid festivities, EBM donated in-kind donation worth more than Rs. 2.4 millions to Green Crescent Trust under their nutritional program for school children. EBM’s generous support brought priceless smiles to faces of more than 8200 children all across Sindh.
To timely distribute the donation to far flung areas of Sindh within Green Crescent Trust’s schools network was a major challenge. In this regard TCS, Pakistan’s premier courier and logistics company, provided logistics support to Green Crescent Trust in reaching out GCT schools from Karachi to Kashmore all across Sindh. TCS, as a socially conscious company, distributed the donation under their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative. We are thankful to TCS for their generous support.
Last but not the least, we are thankful to Indus Pharma in extending their support in coordination of distribution operation.
As the legend leads, EBM’s, TCS’s and Indus Pharma’s endeavors serve the crucial purpose of creating an awakening and getting others to start thinking about socially responsible behavior. This is only possible if more and more companies, and not just the large ones, come forward to do their bit. The corporate sector must take a long-term view on this matter as a prosperous community can only benefit the corporate sector in return.
