Nepal’s largest Internet Service Provider WorldLink is distributing electric stoves to 106 households of its employees across Nepal. The initiative comes as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
The infrared cooktop that the company is providing will help promote the adaptation of electric appliances. Lately, Nepal Electricity Authority has also urged the public to increase the consumption of power. Such programs like WorldLink will help jump the shift to electricity from fuel-based systems.
Regarding the latest CSR program, Manoj Agrawal, Director of WorldLink said, “We will distribute electric stoves first after assessing the background of our employees. Our domestic employees are from different areas of the country. This is why we have started the program from the company.”

We believe this activity directly contributes to the promotion of Affordable and Clean Energy, which comes under one of the thematic areas of WorldLink CSR,” the company said in a statement.
Earlier, the company called for applications from its employees for electric cooktops. The company has selected the recipients from the applicants that it thinks to deserve the stoves.
The company expects its plan to distribute electric stoves to promote the usage of eco-friendly energy. The campaign will help the company encourage seven goals of sustainable development.
