Vianet Communications Pvt. Ltd. has continued its famed CSR campaign Good with Internet for another year. The CSR initiative kicked off during the COVID-enforced lockdown to help people deprived of educational opportunities simply because they could not afford the internet. The initiative was started in response to the story of Pratibha Didi—who had come from Kavre to Kathmandu to educate her child but faced difficulties in the pandemic-enforced online world—posted by Human’s Kathmandu on their social media platform.After learning about the story, Vianet went ahead and supported the family with the internet to enable the child’s education.
This single act turned into a CSR campaign called Good with Internet that supports families that cannot afford the internet and thereby their children’s education simply because they cannot afford the internet. At its core, Vianet’s Good with Internet is an attempt to help people stay connected to the internet for educational opportunities. The connectivity, as well as affordability of the internet, has been getting even better in recent years. Yet, there are many children deprived of quality educational opportunities simply because they cannot afford the internet. And the company wants to reach out to them to the best of its ability.
