KE Honours Organizations That Serve Karachi at KHI Awards 2

K-Electric organized its 2nd edition of the KHI Awards, an initiative endorsed by NEPRA and launched in collaboration with #IAmKarachi, to honour social welfare organisations working hard to make Karachi a thriving city. The Governor House in Karachi was host to KHI Awards 2 to award the organisations which make Karachi an energetic and flourishing city. Forty winners across 13 categories – Empowering Women, Education, Digital Accessibility and Financial Inclusion, Heritage and Culture, Public Health (Primary Sector), Public Health (Secondary and Tertiary Sector), Safety, Sports, Inclusion, Lively Hoods and Vocational Training, Social Service, Sustainability and Environment and Uplifting Communities, were celebrated for their endeavors in driving a cultural change for the city.

The chief guest of the event was Governor Sindh Imran Ismail, while Chairman NEPRA Tauseef H. Farooqi, and Muhammad Azfar Ahsan, Minister of State & Chairman of Board of Investment (BOI) were guests of honor for the event.

The event kicked off with a speech from Chief Executive Officer K-Electric Moonis Alvi, stating, “At KE, we believe in going beyond the provision of power to Karachi; we are committed to building great societies.” With KHI Awards 2, significant support was extended towards organizations that work around the clock to make Karachi a better place. All large and small organizations were honored and recognized to lead change in this megalopolis we call home. 

Some of the prominent winners of the KHI Awards 2 include Ayesha Chundrigar Foundation (ACF) for their noteworthy contributions towards social service and animal rights, Karachi United Football Foundation Trust for promoting sports culture in women, Karachi Down syndrome Program for their continued struggle towards helping children and adults with this disease and The Citizens Foundation (TCF) for the unparalleled contribution in the education sector. 

Following the pandemic, organizations across the globe were confronted with expanded risks no matter what their size was. The area most impacted was the one entrusted with resolving cultural and social issues. While new drives around food security further developed, numerous issues pertaining to social upliftment and welfare were left out of the mix. The KHI Awards resolves this issue by an equitable and impartial avenue through which winners are awarded grants of PKR 40 million in the form of rebates on electricity bills.

Famous Pakistani actor and legend Anwar Maqsood took the center stage and excited the crowd with his beautiful poetry. He also appreciated the efforts of KE and NEPRA towards the betterment of society at large. Pakistani pop vocalist Shehzad Roy also shook the audience by singing a tune created for and devoted to the government assistance associations working in Karachi. 

The main highlight was when the CEO Moonis Alvi addressed the numerous struggles of our city and stated that hundreds of small and large organizations work around the clock to contribute towards building a great society. He then spoke about granting more opportunities for women at KE and being a company that believes in diversity and inclusion. Moreover, the standing ovation that KE deserves is for Roshni Bajis, an initiative by KE in which women are encouraged to take up roles of meter reader, technician, electrician, etc., which are stereotypically presumed to be roles of men. 

With this large number of elevating plans, KE is additionally providing change into the hearts of each Pakistani, leading the way, and impacting the obsolete attitude of society.
