partnerships & social involvement
In addition to partnering with research institutes, we also join with organizations that have a direct influence on creating more sustainable economic and employment conditions, both in and outside our current markets. In India, we support the MaFoi/Disha foundations, and to stimulate development outside our markets we have a global partnership with the Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO). VSO are specialists in recruiting and placing volunteers with professional qualifications from around the world to live and work in developing countries. They are one of the largest NGOs of their kind in the world, and we have worked together since 2004.
