Many students in Pakistani community schools have lost their online classes because they do not have access to smart devices. “Now, we hope that these decent students will be able to get an education without a break during the COVID-19 period,” a senior diplomat believes.
The aim of this initiative is to help students become part of online education in place because of the closure of schools amid a coronavirus outbreak, the Pakistan Consulate stated. Consulate General of Pakistan in Dubai Ahmed Amjad Ali distributes laptops among students. Mission diplomats buy these laptops from consular funds as well as Pakistani donors donated for this purpose.
