Strong believers of the above statement, we use our assets and knowledge to help our communities, which have in return given us fascinating culture and warm hospitality.
Firstly, our hiring policy focuses on providing employment opportunities to the local community, giving adequate training so that they can transfer this knowledge to their own networks. This has helped many people associated with our organization to improve their lives, to feel empowered and capable to educate the people around them as well.
We believe sowing the seeds of knowledge can be transferred for generations. This is a sentiment that has been carried on to other social projects we have conducted, from providing locals with health camps and awareness programs, to free medical treatment and education.
