Karachi, 5th September 2014: K-Electric in its press statement was pleased to announce that the power utility has signed an MoU with APWA Rana Liaquat Craftsmen Colony (RLCC) in which KE would be providing 100% free electricity to the non-profit organization.
The signing ceremony took place at the KE House and the MoU was signed between CEO K-Electric Mr Nayyer Hussain and Chairperson RLCC Selwa Habib. This was part of the Empowerment Program which is part of K-Electric’s Social Investment Program.
RLCC was founded by Begum Rana Liaquat Ali back in 1954, for the rehabilitation of emigrating artisans from India and is located in Shah Faisal Town, Karachi. The organization has around 1,000 registered students and emphasizes on health and education by helping the local community with developing a skill base for easy income generation.
By entering into an understanding with the RLCC, it becomes KE’s 12th partner under its Empowerment Program. On this occasion Chairperson RLCC Miss Selwa Habib said, “ We appreciate KE’s generosity to support the health and education sectors and we hope that other corporate entities also participate in such noble causes”.
K-Electric’s CEO added, “We at K-Electric commend RLCC’s efforts in the health and education sectors where they help out families create income sources other than the traditional system of a single bread-earner. People need to be educated in a friendly and comfortable environment”.
KE’s Social Investment Program is aimed at extending support to vital healthcare and educational institutions serving the under-privileged and needy on purely humanitarian grounds. Under this program KE will be paying electricity bills of these welfare entities in part or in full, to subsidize their energy cost in recognition of the noble causes these institutions are pursuing.
