Social Responsibility- how we contribute
At Alecto, we believe in the importance of social responsibility. We are grateful for the opportunity to help those in need and as such since 2015 have committed to donating $250 to our nominated charity for every GP we place.
Alecto’s charity contribution program enables the business, GPs, practice owners and staff to make regular and one-off donations, with staff donations matched dollar for dollar by Alecto.
Opportunity International provides microloans and training to villages in need and assists individuals in transforming the community they live in. Each loan assists in building a business that can help the growth and transformation of their village creating working opportunities, skills and income.
How has Alecto helped?
Alecto is currently assisting two villages; Wuatupuda in Sumba Indonesia and Pingit in Baler, Philippines. Our donation in 2016/2017 provides Opportunity International with the funds to help these two villages build their communities and fight poverty.
For each GP that is placed, Alecto contributes $250 towards our selected villages.
With our contribution, we enable changes in the villages like:
- Increase empowerment and leadership within the community
- Income and business growth
- Increase the likelihood of parents sending their children to school
- Improved resilience to reduce the impact of natural disasters.
