The ASK Group also believes in building a legacy of social progress. A legacy that empowers people and uplifts communities. This belief led to the genesis of ASK Foundation in 2008 - the corporate social responsibility arm of ASK Group.
The ASK Foundation works on developing livelihoods by collaborating with social entrepreneurs and NGOs by supporting them on a financial and capacity building basis to help scale and execute their ongoing projects.
