Zero Poverty and Hunger
To eliminate poverty, we believe in creating access to economic services at the very basic level, and this would include health, education and human rights development.
We also support causes that broaden opportunities for the poor especially at the community level.
Assisting and Empowering the Disabled
People who live with an impairment, whether it is a physical, learning or mental health disability, have much to contribute to businesses and the society at large.
Until today, there are huge gaps of prejudices and inequality in terms of opportunities in the workplace for the disabled. This is not to mention the stigma and discrimination they have to put up with.
It is our strategy to support programs for rehabilitation, training, education, opportunities equalization and social integration for the disabled community
We also look to support the development of individual leaders with disabilities and encouraging cross-disability partnerships.
