This project also creates a platform for employees of Novaland to participate in meaningful CSR activities for the benefit of the community.

FRAMEWORK AND STRATEGY

LINKING HEARTS is a very meaningful program as it goes beyond the typical donation of money. The program presented scholarships and bursaries; donated bicycles to students living in communes inaccessible to public transport; donated computers, books and medical supplies to schools; construction of complimentary houses and provided medical insurance to the needy; donated breeding cows to families venturing into cattle farming; built roads and street lightings and organized communal activities.
