Cairo: December 21st, 2011
TE Data announced finalizing the development of Zaki village in Fayoum. TE Data provided the villagers with health and educational services in addition to their basic necessities such as water, electricity and roofing. TE Data’s employees also helped them register for birth certificates and ID cards.
TE Data has recently undertaken the development of one of the poorest villages in Fayoum governorate; “Zaki” after conducting a competition called “3ashanek ya Misr” on its Facebook page for the best CSR project .The competition was a great success leading to choosing villages development as the winning initiative as it serves a large number of underprivileged citizens in the society.
“TE Data is very proud of this project” Engineer Azza Torky, TE Data’s Chairman said during a press conference held on the 20th of December 2011.
Torky said that TE Data was able to provide the villagers with their basic necessities from food to medical supplies, in addition to small projects to families in need, stressing that TE Data intends to expand its CSR activities to include other villages in Fayoum as well. The project took around four months in cooperation with dynamic NGOs namely Bedaya and El Orman. “Our intention is to make El Fayoum governorate a role model for others to follow” added Torky.
Tamer Gaddalla, Managing Director of the enterprise unit in TE Data, said that TE Data was able to implement this project in a relatively short time due to the commitment of TE Data staff and strong desire in improving the living standards of their fellow Egyptians.
TE Data employees paid several visits to Zaki village in order to follow up on the developing process and to maintain a constant relationship with the families in Zaki village. They were accompanied with medical convoys to provide health services and treatment to the villagers in addition to conducting a comprehensive survey on the number of villagers who couldn’t afford to be officially registered whether through National ID cards or birth certificates. This was vital to help the villagers get registered and get birth certificates and ID cards.
“Each employee will be in touch with a family from “Zaki” village on a regular basis to assess their needs and provide them with psychological care and consistent attention” added Gadalla.
During the Press conference, TE Data gave a special award to engineer Haitham El Desouky who won first place in “Science Stars” competition. TE Data had started a press and social media campaign calling on Egyptians to vote for him.
TE Data’s Managing Director Ahmed Ossama said that TE Data had directed its social media channels to call all Egyptians to vote for Haitham and help him win “We are truly proud of El Desouky’s accomplishment and we will continue, not just as a company but as Egyptians as well, to support him in every way possible”
Ossama stressed on the importance of scientific research in Egypt as key to the development and progression of society in the coming period.
