Mission of PLANWEL

Bringing Technology To The People
Building Technology Based Communities
Technology For The People And Run By The People

The mission of PLANWEL is to promote education and research such that quality education could reach underprivileged masses globally. Education can, indeed be used as a tool for developing countries to improve quality of life of underprivileged communities, and in turn help the globalization process for the entire world. For this purpose it is necessary to have a unified educational system able to cater for the entire underdeveloped population.

For addressing this mission, PLANWEL will first train trainers of international quality in all disciplines, both at Karachi, Pakistan, and other partner Universities of Pakistan and abroad. These trained personnel will enter the market equipped with skills and engineering theory, basic management concepts, business communications, knowledge of the internet, English as well as plenty of experience in their own areas of expertise. These graduates will be formidable candidates for employment in the most challenging environment possible.

In order to provide quality education to the masses, PLANWEL is desirous to take assistance from Institutions and members of the International Community, particularly those who are using the most advanced technology which could economize quality education for underprivileged masses and make it possible to educate more and more people with minimum number of instructors at minimum cost. This has now become possible through the distance learning process - conducted by the Planwel Virtual University POP (Point Of Presence) using electronic media the first one was established at gulistan-e-Jauhar, Karachi..

PLANWEL believes that in order to make the Planwel Virtual University POP’s a reality for globalization of education it is essential to open up delivery (POP’s - Point Of Presence) in each and every community of underdeveloped nations with the help of local private sector. These (POP’s - Point Of Presence) will act as catalyst for development and diffusing disparity. In reality the Planwel Virtual University POP’s will host researchers and Professors from around the world; while the (POP’s - Point Of Presence) will be their classrooms all over the developing world. These researchers/professors can be part of the Panel from around the world so it will be a true virtual forum, disseminating their knowledge through the (POP’s - Point Of Presence) around the GLOBE. This is what PLANWEL’S goal is;

“Taking Technology To The People”

This eventually would cater for research and development on the Internet infrastructure in the underdeveloped regions. Once this system has been tested then this could be replicated in the region withy facilities like health care and various other sectors. Which in turn could be quite affordable at that point; since just as an example a panel of top surgeons from around the world can provide life saving operating instructions to a local surgeon in some remote health center in a third world country. This project is tailored to underprivileged regions of the world, and will prepare the communities for the new millennium’s Technology Based Communities. These POP’s (Point of Presence) could be maintained and operated by local communities while at the same time can be used for various other Information Technology related services like telemedicine, e-commerce, telebanking etc. In return providing needed facilities and generating money. Thus these POP’s (Point of Presence) will be the true reflection of PLANWEL’s vision for:

"Building Technology Based Communities"

Further, these POP’s (Point of Presence) will serve as the new community centers of the new millennium. Where at one end it will be the gateway to the world by providing choices and opportunities to the remote and desolate communities; on the other it will induce sense of community delivering a message:

"Technology For The People And Run By The People"
