Moving forward through sustainability for the needs of our future, this year Ekovest Berhad is dedicated to giving back to the stakeholders while embracing the three pillars of our CSR approach comprising Education, Community and Employee.
The objectives of our CSR Programme are to be the leading organisation in promoting good corporate governance while maintaining our shared values through Education. We also strive to continually build positive relationship by actively engaging with our surrounding Community. Our Employees are the foundation to develop a constructive, innovative and healthy environment to return value to all stakeholders.
With that being said, we will reach out to the underprivileged urban poor children through our Learning Beyond Classroom Campaign, in collaboration with Dignity for Children Foundation.
Dignity for Children Foundation is an education institution located in Sentul Boulevard. They aim to empower underprivileged urban poor children and break the cycle of poverty through quality education. The institution has positively transformed their lives and the community around them. Dignity for Children Foundation is a learning centre which provides academic and social education for 15 years to more than 1,000 poor and vulnerable children ranging from 2 to 17 years, from pre-school to Form 5.
Learning Beyond Classroom Programme is a campaign initiated by Ekovest Berhad which aims to close the gap between the stakeholders and the community around us as part of our contribution.
This campaign encompasses 6 visits to educational and interactive centres around Kuala Lumpur from May until October 2015.
On 16th May 2015, we initiated the first trip to Petrosains Discovery Centre, KLCC with 40 kids from Dignity for Children Foundation along with three teachers and six volunteers from Ekovest Berhad. The four-hour excursion was a social experience to be with the underprivileged kids and share their stories along with the discovery tour - it's filled with fun and activities through a learning process.
The second trip took place at the Ekovest Berhad Sales Gallery. This venue was selected to boost motivation in students and enable them to experience working life for a day.
Through our Corporate Social Responsibility programme, the Company strives to make a positive impact in the workplace and in the communities close to us.
We have worked hard to earn the loyalty and trust of our consumers and is further committed to a strategy that integrates CSR and sustainability across our business in order to build shareholders value.
