In a bid to empower students that are looking forward to their careers in various fields, MOL Group, under its Book Donation Project, has donated a number of technical and reference books to the two universities of KP.
With this provision, the students of Hangu Branch of Kohat University of Science & Technology (KUST) and Khushal Khan Khattak University (KKKUK) of Karak will now have more options to bring their research work at par with international standards.
The libraries of these universities are now provided with latest encyclopedias and books related to various subjects including history and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) sciences. These books can be used for the preparation of exams and also as reference readings.
MOL realizes the importance of reading and education by the provision of good quality books for all educational institutions and its students. Through this project, MOL Group aims at increasing the number of books in public university libraries in MOL Pakistan’s operational areas. MOL Group has invested around USD 15,000 in this project.
