Lahore, August 16, 2012 (PPI-OT): Etihad Guest, the award winning loyalty program of Etihad Airways, has joined Pakistan’s Family Educational Services Foundation (FESF) to support the education and vocational skills training of children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Etihad Guest members can now donate miles in the Etihad Guest Reward Shop’s charity section (www.rewards.etihadguest.com). The donated miles will be converted by the airline into a cash donation to cover children’s monthly or annual tuition fees and school expenses. These include transportation, uniforms, books and a daily snack for children enrolled in the Deaf Reach Schools in Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Nawabshah and Lahore.
The Deaf Reach Schools and Training Centres is a project of the FESF offering courses designed to meet students’ specific academic and vocational needs. Empowerment through education and training in marketable skills ultimately helps these deaf young men and women to become self-sufficient.
