“To contribute to the social and economic development of the communities in which we operate. In doing so, build a better, sustainable way of life for the weaker sections of society across the globe.”
We work in a society which is interlinked and interdependent. But when it comes to company profits it often does not find its way beyond the stake holders. We often say our company does the charity by helping different charities. We believe a charity should not be a charity but a Corporate Social Responsibility. By performing our social responsibility we are not helping others but develop a strong society which would only help us and our generations to come. Performing Corporate Social Responsibility should not be done for the sake of attaching our company name but to build a strong society. If we give a hungry man food for a day, he will eat it and the next day he would be hungry again. In this situation we have not performed our social responsibility at all rather we should teach him and help him with finding the way of being self reliant. This way he would feed himself and his family for a life time.
How we fulfil our Social Responsibility
It doesn’t matter how much we give to society, what matters the most is how,what and where. Through our identification mechanism we evaluate the section of society which could benefit the most from our work or expertise. We have decided that every year we would select one section of the society where our Aracion Family would work and contribute throughout the year to help make it more stronger.
2015 to Child Empowerment
We have dedicated year 2015 to Child Empowerment. When our team was looking into the section of society where we should contribute we came across some facts about Children which not just gave us the reason to work towards Child Empowerment but made us ashamed in the world we live. In the last two centuries we have invented aero planes, cars, internet, mobile phones, visits to Moon/Space, luxuries after luxuries, you name anything we have it in this century. But in all of this we left behind the most vulnerable section of society – Children. We would like to share some of the facts about Children:
- According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty
- Around 27-28 percent of all children in developing countries are estimated to be underweight or stunted. The two regions that account for the bulk of the deficit are South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
- Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year on weapons was needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet it didn’t happen.
- Every Second Child on this earth lives in poverty
- 2.2 million children die each year because they are not immunised
- Some 1.8 million child deaths each year as a result of diarrhoea
- There are more than 130 million children without education worldwide
