EDUCATION: DOOR TO THE FUTURE
 
Ignorance prevents people from improving their lives and is thereby the biggest impediment to a nation’s development. Most of the problems faced by our world today, stem from mass ignorance. Poverty, diseases, over population, violence, ecological crisis and intolerance are all fallout of lack of knowledge and comprehension.
It is our firm belief that training and education are essential to professional development and that education is a building block for change. We support education initiatives directed at our employees as well as the people and communities around us. The variety of projects our Company supports reflects the difference in needs of the communities in which we are active. From providing schools with computers and books, renovating schools, encouraging sport activities, creating learning opportunities within the business, to employees taking on the role of coach and mentor, our Company looks for practical and effective means of contributing to the community.
