Karachi, (April 30th, 2014) – Green Crescent Trust (GCT) & United Bank Limited (UBL) ink an agreement to provide UBL Omni – a branchless banking solution to GCT network of 87 schools all across Sindh. The solution will facilitate GCT in disbursement of teachers’ salary to more than 700 teachers, schools expenditure and collections of funds in 15 districts of Sindh.
GCT is a registered nonprofit that started operations back in 1995 with the start of 1 school and 65 students. Now GCT has a network of 87 schools in marginalized areas of Sindh where more than 14,000 deserving children are getting education.
GCT’s partnership with UBL will further drive this nonprofit educational initiative through UBL Omni – a branchless banking, which brings a host of banking services to nearest “Dukaan” to GCT schools and eases burden of carrying cash to long distances or visiting a nearby bank branch.
Now Rubina, a teacher in one of the GCT schools in Korangi can withdraw her salary from the nearby “UBL Omni Dukaan” with ease of mind and focus more on education of children.
