Corporate Social Investment
We have been closely involved in community programs where members of staff are part of this investment. Through our close engagement, we have impacted positively on the social and environment welfare of the community.
The Employee Voluntary Program (EVP), was set up to encourage employees in giving back to the community or to the least fortunate of the community, on a voluntary basis.
Trees for Health Project
AAR "Trees for Health" project is based on the notion that the health of the environment directly impacts on the health of children (and adults). Therefore steps taken to improve children's health are combined and intricately associated with taking action towards creating a healthier environment.
