OGDCL Sponsored Girls Hostel Inaugurated at QAU

A hostel with the accommodation capacity of 300 students on the campus of Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) was inaugurated by Mr. Zahid Mir Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Oil and Gas Development Company Ltd (OGDCL) and Dr. Javed Ashraf Vice Chancellor, Quaid-i-Azam University. Construction of the hostel was sponsored by OGDCL under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme

Speaking on the occasion Dr Javed Ashraf lauded the noble step of OGDCL and urged the Corporate Sector of the country to come forward and support the premier institutions. The Vice Chancellor said that QAU is a federally chartered university devoted to teaching & research. At QAU students are admitted from all over Pakistan according to regional quota but purely on merit. Therefore, he said the requirement for hostel accommodation is much more than any other university. He praised the generous donation of OGDCL and hoped that shortage of hostel accommodation will be tackled successfully with the completion of the new hostel.

Mr. Zahid Mir Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Oil and Gas Development Company Ltd (OGDCL) while addressing the ceremony said, since its inception, OGDCL has always given top priority to the development of communities residing in and around the Company’s area of operations. “We support education initiatives directed at our employees as well as the people and communities around us” said the MD. Deans of the Faculties, staff and senior faculty members attended the ceremony.
