KARACHI (Staff Report) – Mobilink has successfully completed its nationwide ‘Enhancement Program’ in partnership with Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy (PCP). Under the program, cellular company has set up six state of the art ICT labs in its partner schools to ensure youth from marginalised communities are equipped to thrive in the fast evolving digital economy.
