In a bid to ensure a better-connected world for all, Huawei on Monday donated digital equipment and other devices necessary to develop a smart classroom for underprivileged children through Obhizatrik Foundation. 

This collaboration between Huawei and Obhizatrik Foundation comes from a common yearning to create a better-digitized world for unprivileged children, reads a press release. 

Under this collaboration, Huawei has donated various items such as Huawei tabs, laptops, routers, internet subscriptions for a year, students' dresses, bags, stationaries, masks, and oxygen cylinders to Obhizatrik School.  

The items were handed over to Ahmed Imtiaz Jami, the founder and president of Obhizatrik Foundation, during a ceremony held at Obhizatrik School on Monday. 

Deputy Minister of Education Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury was present virtually at the event as the chief guest with CEO of Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Zhang Zhengjun and senior officials of both Huawei and Obhizatrik Foundation in attendance. 

"Unprivileged students in our society are among the most in need, and the Bangladesh government is very concerned about their future growth and education. I am glad to see a global ICT company like Huawei reaching out to help. I would like to thank Huawei that you are doing your bit to develop ICT in Bangladesh,and actively engaged in corporate social responsibility," said the deputy education minister.

Zhang Zhengjun said: "Our recent initiative, ‘In Bangladesh, For Bangladesh - We are Here,’ has been mapped out to reach those deprived kids as we do believe, even if it is a small initiative, but the continued effort will make a difference and several small streams will converge into a vast ocean finally."

“Obhizatrik foundation has been working with unprivileged section of people for a long time, but in the pandemic, we were helpless because of the lack of resources and digital means necessary for online education,” said  Ahmed Imtiaz Jami.

“We also needed safety materials such as masks and oxygen cylinders to fight the pandemic. Huawei has stepped in to help the unprivileged children to close the digital gap and safeguard their health. Huawei has my sincere thanks for their help,” he added. 

As a responsible business entity, Huawei believes in developing an inclusive society and catalyzing sustainable socio-economic development where everyone will have equal access to a connected world, the press release adds. 

To that end, Huawei empowers the underpowered and connects all schools to expedite digital inclusivity at educational institutes. 

Huawei plans to close the digital gap among the people of Bangladesh and provide the best service as a localized global ICT provider and create an inclusive future for the people of Bangladesh.
