emPower people with tech
“emPower people” is a hope for those who crave to learn, explore and still waiting to find help and navigate in order to make their own way in this era of technology and innovation to cope up with the future”

Technology is about the demand and necessity of foreseeable future and in order to adapt the future era, we should first learn to live there. emPower people is a collaborative initiative based in Balochistan to spread the awareness about the era of technology and help people find their vision in the realm of innovation and diversity while connecting them with the Globe.
Balochistan is the most neglected province at the regard of education. According to a report by the Economist Intelligence Unit 60 percent area of Balochistan does not have proper internet coverage. The same reports rank Pakistan 76 out of 100 in Internet Inclusiveness Index and almost last in Asia. The traditional methods of teaching have engulfed the minds of students from being creative, innovative and imaginative.
We at seventick community, believe to make a substantial impact on the lives of people by introducing technology in their lives and channeling their future vision according to future demands.
“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you a faith in people, that they are basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll will do wonderful things with them.
A survey was conducted by our local volunteers based in the rural areas of Balochistan found out very interesting statistics. 2160 students were screened in the survey and among them only 10% were familiar with usage of computer. None of them were familiar with Microsoft applications.
We believe and aim to reach those who are unfamiliar with the usages of technology tools, make them part of their daily lives, help them explore the realm of innovation and let them find their own path in this era of technology.
If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.”.
