J&K Bank on Saturday donated 25 computer systems and books to government run Higher Secondary School Kapran, Shopian. Executive President Parvez Ahmad inaugurated the lab and the library section.
A small function was held within the school premises that was attended by a large gathering of students, staff, senior citizens and local residents.
“It is moment of delight for me to fulfill the promise made by our Chairman and CEO Mushtaq Ahmad during the inaugural ceremony of Kapran BU. These assets would contribute to the overall development of this area in the longer run,” Parvez Ahmad said. “We work for the prosperity of people and all our business and profits flow from this spirit.”
“At J&K Bank, we believe in the philosophy of empowerment which in essence begins with education. We think, our new generation irrespective of socio-economic background and geography must have easy access to IT, which is main driver of development today.”
Ahmad said the bank donated these systems with a hope that the students of this school along with others from the surrounding villages will avail these facilities to hone their talent and brighten their future prospects. “J&K Bank is committed to support you financially for all your viable and sustainable business ventures,” he said. Ahmad suggested the school authorities to identify downtrodden and under-privileged children of the area and impart short-term courses in IT to them so that the benefits of these facilities are shared among a larger section of society in and around the Kapran area. The authorities accepted the suggestion.
