PROJECT: 10,000 Computers for the Children of Pakistan

The main purpose of this Project is to provide large quantities of used Personal Computers (PCs) to selected Schools, Colleges and Universities of Pakistan, in order to bring about a Computer literary revolution and to let the Pakistani children enter the twenty first century with full confidence and to make it possible for them to earn their own living and also create prosperity for Pakistan.  This Project is a gift for the Pakistani children, from the Overseas Pakistanis and a help for the Government of Pakistan in the field of Information Technology and Mass Education.

 

Another important aim of this Project is to make the overseas Pakistanis pro-active and not to let them wait and depend upon governmental measures only.  It is about time that a positive change in thinking is brought about and practical and concrete steps are taken for the development of Pakistan, through self-reliance.

 

This Project is being started from Saudi-Arabia and soon will expand to other countries where large numbers of Overseas Pakistanis are stationed.  Efforts are being made to contact and involve organizations of Overseas Pakistanis, in countries such as USA, UK, UAE, OMAN, QATAR, KUWAIT and BAHRAIN etc. for the collection of Personal Computers in large quantities.  

Dr. Mobashir (Jeddah, Saudi-Arabia), presented the main theme of this Project to Prof. Atta-ur-Rahman, Minister of Science and Technology, Government of Pakistan, few months ago in Jeddah.  Prof. Attaur Rahman not only appreciated the idea but also promised full support and guidance from his Ministry.  Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Mohammad Asad Durrani, the Ambassador of Pakistan in Saudi-Arabia and Mr. Rizwanul Haq Mahmood, the Consul General of Pakistan in Jeddah have also granted their full support and patronage for this Project and have also arranged for the collection of PCs in the Consulate offices in Riyadh and Jeddah.
The Pakistani Engineers Society, Jeddah has taken the lead in launching this Project and has arranged a Project launching ceremony.  It is expected that overseas Pakistani residing in Saudi-Arabia will whole-heartedly participate in this project.
On the occasion of Project launching, Dr. Wajahat Mirza (President, Pakistani Engineers Society, Jeddah) and Eng. Azeez Ahmad (Secretary General Pakistani Engineers Society, Jeddah) have made a passionate appeal to the Pakistani Engineers in particular and other professionals in general to make this project successful and to donate their used PCs.  

Dr. Mobashir Sheikh stated that PC collection centers for this project have been established at the Pakistani Embassy Riyadh, Pakistan Consulate General Office in Jeddah and the Regional Main offices of Al-Hamrani Fuchs Petroleum Co. in Jeddah, Riyadh and Al-Khobar.  Mr. Ahsan Rasheed, President Al-Hamrani Fuchs Petroleum Co. Saudi-Arabia has also expressed his full support for the Project and has provided collection and dispatch facilities.  All contact details are provided in the “APPEAL”.  

The facilities of Internet and e-mail are being used extensively for the propagation of the Project.  Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has agreed to airlift the PCs in large quantities from the main Saudi Cities to Pakistan, at NO charge.  

The organization and entities that have come forward to support this project, include Al-Hamrani Fuchs Petroleum Co. Saudi-Arabia, Pakistani Engineers Society, Jeddah (PES), Pakistani Executives Group (PEG) Jeddah and Riyadh and a number of others.  

It is expected that about two thousand PCs will be collected within the next six months, from Saudi-Arabia and within a period of one year, about ten thousand PCs will be collected worldwide, Free of cost for the children of Pakistan.
