Logistics manpower provider Dulsco tackles poverty
Dulsco, a provider of human resource solutions and waste management services for the logistics industry, is contributing towards achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Recognising the critical role education plays in eradicating poverty, the company has contributed to the construction of a school in Nepal as part of Dubai Cares’ “Adopt a school” initiative.
Representatives from Dulsco’s senior management recently visited Narayanpur village located in far western Nepal to inaugurate the adopted school.
The school will provide education to around 150 students, while also indirectly benefiting approximately 300 adults, teachers and community officials.
The Narayanpur community has invested more than 500 volunteering hours towards the construction of the school, built by BuildOn, the implementation partner for Dubai Cares in Nepal.
Dulsco also recently contributed to Dubai Cares’ Nepal earthquake reconstruction program that targets the reconstruction of schools damaged during the severe earthquake that hit Nepal in 2015.
“In order to break the vicious cycle of poverty, we need to take into account all of its causes,” said S. Balakumar, managing director of Dulsco. “Dulsco and Dubai Cares are targeting the best long-term solution to poverty, which is education, as we build schools in different countries with various development needs such as Nepal.
“We have many Nepali employees working for Dulsco and this initiative is our gesture of thanks to the Nepali community for their loyal support and contribution to the company’s growth,” Balakumar added.
