Education is the cornerstone of economic growth and development. This principle is embedded in the Altech Group’s CSI policy and reflected in the choice of investments we make. The LEAP investment is in line with Altech Autopage’s CSI strategy to contribute towards bridging the digital divide among previously disadvantaged communities and enable innovative learning in the classrooms.
