Employee Volunteerism

The dedication of P&G employees has made it possible for the company to touch and improve lives of Pakistanis in many different ways. P&G employees bring to life the company's Purpose through their everyday work including volunteering enthusiastically for the company's community development programs.
P&G volunteer programs allow employees to connect with the company's Purpose and engage very closely and personally with the long–term causes that P&G is committed to. Employees not only witness the meaningful difference being made in the community but feel a sense of pride in having a role to play in making that difference.

Employee volunteerism has been an integral part of P&G’s social responsibility efforts in Pakistan. Over the past 9 years, P&G employees have contributed around 2500 volunteer-hours toward the company's community projects.

Creating new bonds at SOS Children’s Village

Through the years P&G employees and interns have taken out precious time to visit the SOS Children’s Village in Karachi and spend quality time with the children there.
To date more than 100 P&G volunteers have participated in this program engaging around 150 children in various creative and fun-filled activities which foster a spirit of collaboration, healthy competition and passion to win. This has also provided the children the opportunity to interact with P&G people and develop confidence and social skills.

“I joined the event infused with a volunteer spirit and was even more energized when I left. The enthusiasm of the children served as a great reminder to value and cherish the little things in life. I gave something to society whilst having fun and learning a lot myself that day. I’d definitely encourage others to be a part of this wonderful experience in the future.”

Employees bring clean drinking water to a community in Kathore

P&G employees stepped up to personally bring the P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water program to a local community in need. Around 12 P&G volunteers visited a community in Kathore, District Malir and provided 45,000 liters of clean drinking water for the families there – enough to supply 50 families clean drinking water for 3 months.
Clean drinking water is a dire need for the people of Kathore. Each family received 90 P&G Purifier of Water sachets along with equipment required for the purifying process including bucket, cooler, stir spoon and straining cloth. The families were also educated on the use of the product via a first-hand demonstration. The activity was conducted in collaboration with P&G’s long-term NGO partner HOPE.

P&G Educate a Child Campaign

During Ramadan, P&G launches the Educate a Child campaign, providing employees the opportunity to enroll in long-term NGO partner programs to support the education of underprivileged children. Many of the children attending READ Foundation and HOPE schools come from families with extremely economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
Each year employees stepped up to contribute whole-heartedly towards this cause, helping children in need. P&G employees are making a difference by sponsoring a child’s education for an entire academic year including the cost of books, uniform and stationary in addition to the school fees. Over the past 7 years, P&G employees have participated in this initiative, making education a reality for over 350 underprivileged children.

Fun-filled Adventures with HOPE

For many children at the P&G–HOPE schools visits to historical, cultural and conservation sites are a rare opportunity. For this reason, P&G employees have dedicated time to lead these children on fun-filled, educational trips. To date over 150 employees have engaged with more than 650 children via exciting tours. For many children, this has been their first exposure to such places.
The activities conducted include a tour of the museum and its archives at the PAF Museum which provided children the opportunity to learn about aviation as well as the history of the Pakistan Air Force. A visit to WWF Pakistan's Wetlands Center in Karachi enabled children to learn about Pakistan's coastal wetlands, marine turtles, mangrove forests and migratory birds. Visits to the Karachi Zoo, Maritime Museum, Dolphin Show and UNESCO World Heritage Site at Makli Hills have also been organized giving children the opportunity to familiarize themselves with Pakistan's cultural and naval heritage as well as wild-life species from not only Pakistan but across the world. Through such interactions P&G employees also help develop self–esteem and confidence amongst the children.

"This is the first time I came to the Zoo. I saw many animals but I loved it most when we fed the elephant there. Our group leaders gave us a lot of information regarding what the animals eat. It was a wonderful trip and I enjoyed myself a lot."

“It was a wonderful experience. For the first time in my life I planted mangroves and cleaned the beach. It made me realize how important it is to have a clean environment for the turtle and fish.”

     P&G-HOPE School student

The HOPE School trip was personally an eye-opening and highly gratifying trip for me. It gave amazed me with their enthusiasm for learning and their appreciation for being given this opportunity to experience hands-on education and make a difference to the environment. I’m very glad could be part of this heart-warming endeavor of adding to the children’s educational experience and bringing a smile to their faces, if only for a few hours.”

Painting Futures with READ Foundation

Since the inception of the P&G and READ Foundation partnership in 2006, P&G employees including senior management have traveled to the P&G–READ Foundation schools in the north of the country. Several weekends have been dedicated to visit children of the P&G–READ schools in Bhara Kahu a suburb of Islamabad and Gojra and Lamnian villages in Muzaffarabad.

During these visits employees and the children enjoyed fun–filled activities such as a drawing and painting contest, painting colourful murals on the school walls, creation of an animal kingdom and educational charts, decorating classrooms with creative educational material, glass painting as well as planting trees. Employees have also provided guidance and counsel to the children via mentoring sessions. The activities have been designed to give children a chance to express their creativity in a fun and exciting way whilst gaining valuable extra–curricular experience.

"'I want to become a politician when I grow up,' shared a 14-year-old student I was mentoring at the P&G–READ Foundation schools in Muzaffarabad. 'I want to make this country a better place. All of us here want to study hard and grow up to serve our country in one capacity or another.' I was caught off–guard by the innocence, honesty and sincerity of the children. Despite living through the devastating 2005 earthquake and limited financial resources of their families, these children passionately talked about their responsibility to give back to their community and the country. In the daily rush to get things done, sometimes we lose sight of what is really important. This experience helped me reconnect with my Purpose."

P&G Intern Volunteerism

P&G introduced the concept of "Intern Volunteerism Day" with the aim of bringing to life P&G's community projects to its interns. P&G prides itself on its Summer Internship Program which gives students across Pakistan the unique opportunity to work at P&G for a summer, undertaking real–life projects at P&G Pakistan.
Through this initiative, P&G interns have spent time with children studying at P&G–HOPE schools, leading many fun and educational activities. They have also spent a fun day with children at the SOS Children's Village in Karachi playing games and conducting story telling sessions. P&G interns have also contributed time to the company's flood relief efforts. In 2010, P&G interns personally volunteered time at the Ariel laundry station at METRO Karachi to sort, wash and pack clothes for distribution to the flood–affected people. Moreover, P&G interns have raised funds via a consumer activity to contribute towards Eid gifts for over 185 children of the P&G–HOPE schools.
