FOUNDATION VISION
AND MISSION STATEMENT

Shared society, sustainability, and solidarity are central to our mission

At Qualco Foundation, we believe that, in the face of growing and ongoing interrelated crises, a society that embraces inclusion, diversity, and opportunity for everyone is a moral duty. Resilient systems and institutions can only be achieved through inclusive projects and responses that effectively engage voices from all strands of a global community. As a result, the Qualco Foundation has joined the expanding global effort to accelerate the transition to environmental and social sustainability.

 

We support activities that harness creative ideas and approaches to produce a shared benefit for the good of all, from the local to the global level. To influence positive change and promote human development, we invest in creating a shared society that embraces innovation in all parts of life.

 

We envision a new era of solidarity that leads to greener, more inclusive economies, and stronger, more resilient societies.

President’s Address

Investing in human nurture towards a better world

My personal values and experiences paved the path of who we are as a Group and how we act across all levels.

 

I was taught to give back and believe that anything is possible. This is the way I lead my life and the Company all these years. Therefore optimism, empowerment, and persistence lie at the heart of Qualco Foundation.

 

With open eyes and mind to the quest for new opportunities, an inherent curiosity about the context -cultural and environmental-, alongside taking risks and enabling people to make utmost use of their abilities, hidden forces can be released, and true change shall emerge.

 

A future in which everybody, regardless of when they were born, who their parents are, where they grew up, whether they are a boy, or a girl will be able to make their goals come true, is our primary goal. A future of boundless access to Education and Health, Culture, and Social Welfare is central to Qualco Foundation.

 

In this context, one of our plethora of roles is to organize and contribute to a variety of academic, social, cultural, environmental, and entrepreneurial programs and initiatives while collaborating with educational and academic institutions, as well as NGOs and charities, to provide the best possible support to our people and the community.

 

Everyone should be able to dream and achieve their goals, and via the Qualco Foundation, we strive to connect the dots between people’s well-being and our world’s sustainability.
