How QNET is Helping Schoolchildren Access Clean and Safe Water

Posted by TroPe on

Clean water is one of the basic human rights. It is however unfortunate and painful that many people all over the world still lack access to clean water. This shortage has not spared learning institutions, which are also grappling with severe water shortages. To supplement government efforts, QNET recently made a pledge to avail water storage facilities to Government Primary School in Sriram Nagar, Hyderabad. This is part of the company’s ongoing benevolent efforts under its CSR, whose banner is “We Care”. 

The firm, which is a global leader in direct selling, is joining forces with the Lions Club of Hyderabad, Swarnapuri, Dist. 316F to supply storage equipment to the learning center. This will ensure that over 800 children who attend the school have access to clean and safe drinking water. In addition, the initiative will put in place measures that guarantee Government Primary School has well-functioning water and sanitary amenities. Currently, it is experiencing difficulties in providing the services to the kids.

The government is already running a campaign known as Swachh Bharat Swachh Vidyalaya, which seeks to improve public awareness on issues related to sanitation. QNETs initiative greatly supplements the campaign. The newly formed partnership with the Lions Club of Hyderabad will go beyond the current undertaking because similar programs are in the pipeline. The two organizations will also work with NGO’s that have a similar objective. The two hope to unleash their best corporate social responsibility strategies for the betterment of the society and the environment.

QNET’s humanitarian efforts are driven by two pertinent philosophies. These are Raise Yourself to Help Mankind (RHYTHM) and Inservice, which encourages its employees to actively participate in such causes that promote selfless service to mankind. It is also guided by Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy, which emphasized communal gratification.

Fox News Hostess Gets Served By Thor Halvorsse, Founder Of Human Rights Foundation

Posted by TroPe on

There was this crazy interview on Fox news recently. You might’ve seen it on your social media news feed because the three-minute clip has become viral. The banner on the video reads “When Fox News Tries To Slam Bernie Sanders, And It Backfires”. If you watch the video it becomes apparent that the Fox News anchor and the interviewee, Thor Halvorssen, the founder of the Human Rights Foundation, are trying to talk about two different things. It’s almost as if they are two trains on different tracks but on a collision course. And watching the resulting train wreck unfold on live television is pretty amazing.

First of all, Fox News gets this guy Thor Halvorssen on-air to try to slam socialism. According to Forbes.com, Thor Halvorssen is a human rights activist and not a politician. All the guy cares about is human rights violations, especially the ones perpetuated by authoritarian dictators around the planet. The guy obviously has no problem with socialism. He keeps telling the interviewer that socialism isn’t necessarily bad. He even throws Norway, Sweden and Denmark at the hostess as examples of awesome socialist countries that do not violate human rights.

Watching the Fox News anchor then try to get this human rights activist to say that socialism is bad gets pretty funny. It’s a poorly veiled attempt at slamming Bernie Sanders because Bernie Sanders is a self-avowed democratic socialist. She keeps pushing and pushing this idea that socialism is bad and then it blows up right in her face.

Thor Halvorssen feels the Bern. He says it right there on live television, saying that he’s thrown a couple thousand dollars his way. That’s the train back caused by Fox News. They got the wrong guy to interview about Bernie Sanders. The interview gets a little tense and Thor Halvorssen picks up his pace to explain that Hillary Clinton and the Republican front runners support dictators. Dictators violate human rights, not socialism or Bernie Sanders, according to the founder of the Human Rights Foundation. And Fox News gets schooled on the fact that their leading candidates support dictators like Vladimir Putin. Find Halvorssen on Facebook to see what else he is involved with lately.
