In the wake of Covid-19 pandemic, traditional learning systems have suffered greatly, and as a result, online learning has become a crucial part of education, and Noon Academy understands this, as it provides free education to almost 10 million students across the MENA region. Telenor Pakistan is looking to further enable them in their mission of providing quality education through this partnership, with the provision of STEM courses, language courses, as well as resources for exam preparation.
Khurrum Ashfaque, the Chief Operating Officer of Telenor Pakistan, said regarding the partnership, “by working together and creating collaborations with partners like Noon we can reduce the gap in the resources available to over 40 million K-12 students around Pakistan. We aim to motivate young minds to tackle today’s education obstacles while Noon equips them to counter tomorrow’s challenges with the latest 21st century skills. Together, we aim to optimize new technologies to upskill our youth and ensure that learning and upskilling never stops.”
Umair Babar Chishti, the manager director of emerging markets at Noon Global, also stated, “Noon is a global mission to make learning fun and engaging while at the same time providing free of cost access to the top teachers across the globe. Our partnership with Telenor Pakistan helps us incentivize students in Pakistan to see first-hand how the online learning experience can be extremely amazing and beneficial.”
