Our Corporate Social Responsibility

Our current environment is that of high stakes testing and grade dependent privileges. As a result there is a lot of pressure to stand out and be seen as talented. Average school leavers, are likely to feel left out, while the society focuses on the A’s, yet the former is capable of more.

In line with SDG8, to promote full and productive employment and decent work for all, Arieltech/Essart is supporting average school leavers, by offering them basic skills in ICT through short term courses.

Below is our current team of on average 6-10 students on part time basis as we have to allow them  time to do some income generating activities.
