ACT’s Initiative of Giving Back to our Community
Through its Pillars of Support, ACT hopes to incite philanthropy, inspire action and provoke conversation. We definitely realize that it’s more than just monetary contribution. That’s why we prefer to become a strategic partner to leverage our 30+ years of established trust for supporting societal causes where we know we are adding our unique value that probably can’t be met through any other means. ACT sees the most value in actually being a part of the event or cause to provide our access to resources, expertise, unique effort and impact.
People with disabilities (15% of the world’s population), as a group, are more likely to experience adverse socio economic upliftment & outcomes than persons without disabilities.
Through our pillar of Authentic Inclusion, ACT aims to break down the stigma attached to people with disabilities to create a warming environment & extend equal opportunities for everyone – not just the majority! Our focus is to join hands with various organizations and use our trust & access to resources for providing growth opportunities to people with different forms of disabilities such as visual impairment to make them feel like equally essential parts of our society.
Right from our inception in 1989, Education has been an integral part of our initiatives. For instance, ACT has partnered with ABIIT to offer an annual “ACT Scholarship” provided to students seeking their associate’s degree in any Information Technology field.
ACT believes that helping even one student can play a crucial role in the total prosperity of our entire community – one small miracle at a time! This is why we are working towards our core mission of advancing the community every day by helping students pursue their educational goals.
