Globacom Social Responsibility
Globacom at its heart is a collection of passionate people. We don’t only produce state of the art financial technologies, we aspire to make the world a better place for everyone — we believe this down to the team member level. Today we begin highlighting some of the work our people and partner organizations do.
We would like to announce our partnership with Bareeq Education and Development, a non-profit organization that provides free education to displaced Syrian children and other affected communities in Jordan.
Thanks to Bareeq and its supporters, the Bareeq’s Nazzal center is now bursting with 350 students in less than a year. They want to do much more as the need is greater than anyone thought. Bareeq wants to open another center for displaced children and also for children with special needs. They want to repair and reopen more schools within Syria. They want to teach more adults literacy, English, computing, and vocations they can use to improve their family’s lives. They want to provide more university scholarships to the brilliant young high-school graduates who had their dreams completely crushed (in fact, some of these past college scholarship graduates are now giving back by teaching at Bareeq center).

We are proud partners of Jazz Hands Pune, India, a student-run non-profit organization that provides education to underprivileged children in Pune, India through a unique, drama based curriculum. The organization has been successfully functioning since 2015 in affiliation with the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and has been working with their Vidyaniketan schools in Pashan, Pune.
As the world tends towards globalization, more opportunities require fluency in English. As India is one of the largest English-speaking countries in the world, the job market is tough. Jazz Hands is a social venture that is geared towards teaching English to underprivileged children through drama and art based methodologies. Jazz Hands aims at bridging the education gap and working towards creating more opportunities for the students. The program makes use of drama as a creative medium to teach English, grammar, basic communication, voice modulation and other skills. It further helps in boosting spirit and building confidence in the students. The 2017 edition is a four-month program, which ends in September 2017. At the end of each session, there will be a showcase to display the children’s talent. Jazz Hands is a purely student-run initiative; it is a community of volunteers that dedicate their time and are committed to the goals of the venture.
