Corporate Social Responsibility
The importance of giving back to the community is one of the guiding principles of Fast Cables organizational culture. We have set up the Fatima Latif Welfare Trust (FLWT), a nonprofit, to undertake initiatives for the welfare of local communities through projects in health care, education and community development.
To live a healthy life is the basic right of every human being in this world and with this objective in mind FLWT has established the Al Falah Medical Center in Lahore for the provision of medical services to needy citizens.
The aim of Al Falah is to alleviate the suffering of underprivileged by providing treatment for diseases in a compassionate and dignified manner. Various Medical Camps, e.g. for Hepatitis, Cancer Awareness, Eye, Psychiatry, etc. are also periodically organized at Al Falah. In addition, FLWT collaborates with leading National Hospitals for sponsoring medical care.
Educational and Vocational Services
Nawabpura Vocational Training Center is a project of FLWT that offers short courses in domestic tailoring, cooking, arts & crafts, glass painting, beautician, etc. These courses provide women the skills and knowledge needed to pursue job opportunities or set up their own enterprises in order to support their families.
FLWT also provides scholarships for college education to students from government schools who excel in matric results and want to pursue dreams of attaining higher education for the uplift of their families. Further, in line with its mission to promote excellence in education, Fast Cables, in collaboration with FLWT, has introduced Fast Excellence Awards in leading universities across Pakistan such as LUMS, UET Lahore, UET Peshawar, NCA Lahore, NED Karachi, etc. The purpose of these awards is to motivate engineering students towards achieving excellence in science and technology studies.
FLWT undertakes a wide range of projects to help communities acquire facilities that will enhance the quality of their lives. These projects range from the establishment of water purification units to upgradation of local school toilets, computer room, library, etc.
FLWT also provides various financial assistance programs in Nawabpura & neighboring catchments such as water filtration plants, donations for Community Development projects, widows & orphans, Wedding & Ramadan grants for needy, Tree Plantation Drives for a healthy and clean environment, etc.
