Microsoft Pakistan announces its two Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives in a press conference at their Karachi Office. The event attendees included Leila Surhan, General Manager of Microsoft NEPA region and Mr. Nadeem Malik Country Manager of Microsoft Pakistan. The executive body of Microsoft officially launched two social development ventures with a strong emphasis on the upcoming employability portal.

Rozgar is being launched as the Microsoft Employability Portal in order to deliver a wide array of online facilities for a targeted audience. The idea is to facilitate local human resource to learn soft skills and aid in bridging the gap between companies and job seekers. In this regard, Microsoft has collaborated with esteemed international and local NGOs to provide greater opportunities to local community.

The second initiative launched by Microsoft Pakistan focuses on a public discourse campaign to spread awareness about internet safety and security. Under the umbrella of this campaign, Microsft Pakistan will be targeting teachers, students, entrepreneurs and general users to teach them about safe internet usage. To support this campaign, Microsft Pakistan has initiated a Software Donation Program under which the company has been donating advanced software to multiple institutions to support capacity building.
