Getz Pharma is committed to investing in the education of our nation’s underprivileged children and youth.
As part of our educational initiatives, we support projects to reform and renovate public sector educational institutions for the underprivileged. This includes setting up science and computer laboratories, health rooms and libraries; providing educational resources such as books and stationary; supporting educational visits and sporting activities of the students; providing need and merit-based scholarships – all to ensure that students belonging to underprivileged families are not deprived of quality schooling.
Getz Pharma has also contributed to research and training at top universities in Pakistan, such as Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Karachi, and Habib University, Karachi, within neglected areas such as Social Sciences and Art. It has also promoted intellectual and innovative capabilities in research-based analytics, and has exposed students to global best practices, bridging the gap between academia and industry.
One recent initiative in the field of education and skill-building is the inauguration of the Getz Pharma Football Academy. Located in the low income area of Sharafi Goth, Karachi and catering to children from ages 7-12, the Academy provides professional coaching, football kits. training supplies, and access to a top quality football ground to the local youth. The Academy not only helps its members learn and play professional football, it financially supports their primary school education. Such an initiative provides children with a healthy recreational activity, ensures that they receive good quality education and makes them role models in their family and community.
